Some of our ducklings have gone missing, can you help us find them? Follow our GIANT Easter Duck Hunt around our beautiful nature reserve to discover where the eight BIG yellow ducklings are hiding, disguised as the real ducks you can see here. If you discover them all you’ll win a Cadbury Freddo Frog chocolate!
You can also decorate your own colourful duckling to take home in our duck painting eggs-travaganza and join in our egg-citing games such as Egg & Spoon Races and Egg Rolling. So put a spring in your step and come along to London Wetland Centre for an Easter adventure. You can borrow one of our nets and join one of our team to try your hand at pond dipping; who knows what mini-beasts you’ll find coming to life after their long winter sleep.
Spring is a wonderful time to visit WWT London Wetland Centre as new life is bursting out all around with babies, bugs and buds in abundance. With a fun range of Easter egg-tivities, birds singing and springtime flowers, you can’t beat London Wetland Centre as the best place to be during the Easter holidays.
