Decorate your own Easter egg, take part in the hunt
for that elusive Easter egg then work off the Easter
eggs this holiday. Across the borough there are a wide
range of activities indoors and out for children and
families to enjoy. Whether you are a spring chicken or
funny bunny there is fun to be had by all.

'Spring into Action' at Redlees Studios in Isleworth with
arts and crafts workshops for children aged 0 to 12
years. Get creative and paint a collection of wonderful
paper Easter eggs, design your own fabulous CD cover or make a funky T-shirt. Session cost £5.50/£4.50 for 5-12 year olds and £3.50/£2.50 for the Art Tods sessions at Redlees Under Fives Centre.

Easter fun at your local leisure centre includes swimming crash courses or splashing about on one of the exciting inflatables, encounters with exotic animals, trampolining courses, sports camps as well as football, tennis and basketball coaching. Prices and times vary (see contact numbers below).

For those youngsters who would like to learn to master their golf swing, the Pitch & Putt Golf Course in
Gunnersbury Park welcomes juniors to play on the two 9-hole courses. This is an ideal family activity, where a scaled down version of golf can be experienced, even if you have never played the game before. Golf clubs and balls can be hired if you don't have your own and a 9-hole course costs adults £3.80, juniors £2.75. Thereafter Hounslow Heath Golf Course on Staines Road is the perfect place to fine tune your game. The courses are open daily and offer friends and families the opportunity to practice in a safe environment..

From March Gunnersbury Park Museum will be displaying a fascinating exhibition 'Redefining the Body' which compares fashions created by students from the University of East London and the original Victorian Clothes which inspired them.

On Easter Sunday, for a fun afternoon out for all the family, head down to Dukes Meadow in Chiswick to enjoy the free public event for the hugely popular 2005 Oxford vs Cambridge Boat Race. As part of the entertainments a giant TV screen and food and drinks tent will be available as well as children's entertainers Rhubarb the Clown, Great Custardo from the Circus Workshop, Stilt Walkers and a Fire Eater.
