Wiki Places for Kids column: Mini Monsters at large in March

Susie Lodge from has picked four brilliant recommendations to kick off spring with your family, and to keep your kids active over the Easter break with softplay and egg hunts.

Hooray, spring is finally here! March hares, daffodils, sunshine (hopefully)! Oh and Easter! Two full weeks of fun, hunting for chocolate treats and family events.

Below I’ve handpicked a few new and old faves from my awesome Wikilist to fill up your March and entertain your little bunnies throughout the hols.

Something brand new for MK and great come rain or shine… Mini Monsters Softplay Cafe is a perfect solution for those with highly charged kids.

A brilliant cafe, with some yummy food options and loads of well positioned seating, Mini Monsters has a large soft play frame with activities to keep your kids busy (and moving) for hours.

There is also a lovely toddler area, complete with slides and ballpit and a contained sensory space for babies too. Open daily throughout March, and open til 9pm on Fridays and Saturdays, this is an awesome option for the half term too!

Great weather needs a great outdoor location and we just LOVE Stanwick Lakes. A beautiful walk all year round, it’s completely dog friendly, has stunning lakes and scenery, an awesome (and huge) play park AND a blooming brilliant easter egg trail too throughout the Easter weekend!

Last year I received an awesome review on the site for the Cadbury’s Egg Hunt at Hughenden and this year they are doing it bigger and better.

A fabulous hunt for giant eggs around the incredible gardens (a specific hunt for smaller ones) and a chocolate prize for Little and Big hunters. March 30th – £3 per child.

For lots of fab ideas, head over to the site. We are ‘choc full’ of great reviews. From local theatre, museums, to our plethora of stunning country parks and open farms, including our Wiki favourite Thrift Farm who will be prepping for their incredible lambing events!

And if you’re going away, the site is UK wide so take us with you to find the best places where you’re going! Have a wonderful March and a great Easter Hols!
