Amuse the Children this Easter Holiday


So, let’s be honest. The children have a fortnight’s holiday from school looming. This is, on one level, a time for joyful family togetherness and creating memories you will always treasure. On another, it is a seemingly endless cycle of stopping them from bickering, dealing with complaints that they’re bored, and trying to remove felt tip pen marks from the furniture.

We have the perfect toys and games to keep them amused during the school holidays, whatever the weather.

We can deliver quickly too. Here is the Wicked Uncle Guide to rocking at school holiday fun.
