Excited youngsters made the most of their second week off school with dozens of special events across the county. 

Despite miserable weather in Bucks throughout the majority of the Easter holidays, it has not dampened the spirits of hundreds of families who have been out and about at museums, farms, parks and attractions. 

The Chiltern Open Air Museum in Chalfont St Peter threw open its doors on Tuesday for another of its ‘Terrific Tuesday’ events with a spring-time theme. 

It was an opportunity for youngsters to learn about spring, take part in a scavenger hunt in the grounds and listen to spring stories. 

Meanwhile, there was an opportunity to do some spring-time biscuit decorating before going into the great outdoors to enjoy sweetpea planting, create clay faces and bark rubbings in the woodlands. 

Elsewhere in the county, families made Easter crafts, decorated eggs and made rabbit masks before toasting marshmallows on the campfire at Black Park in Wexham. 

A purpose-designed area at Bucks County Museum also featured family favourites such as Duplo bricks, Brio trains and giant Jenga combined with a comfy cinema screening of the LEGO movie.
