Children across North Somerset have enjoyed a feast of Easter activities this week.

There were plenty of great events to suit youngsters of all ages, including an Easter egg hunt at Herbert Gardens in Clevedon on Saturday and an Easter bonnet parade at Portishead Youth Centre.

But the Easter extravaganza began with schools holding a number of events before the term came to an end.

St Mary’s Primary School in Portbury organised an egg hunt for their pupils, while pupils at Trinity Primary School in Portishead made cards with their parents and grandparents.

Teaching assistant Emma O’Brien said: “The children love to invite family members in to see what they have been doing and it’s even more fun when the visitors join in.”

Yatton Federation Schools got its pupils to create characters from eggs and to decorate them – Egg Sheeran being one of the best exhibits.

With it also being the school holidays, youth centres also got in on the Easter action.

The Congresbury Youth Partnership allowed to children to make chocolate nests and to go on an Easter egg hunt, while at Portishead Youth Centre youngsters made their own spring-time bonnets.

And youngsters at The Nursery in Portishead put their cookery skills to the test for an Easter treat.

Three and four-year-olds mixed flour, sugar, eggs and currants before making biscuits shapes on a tray ready for cooking. However, despite enjoying the preparation, apparently eating the biscuits was the most enjoyable part of the day.
