News is coming in thick and fast about different activities happening in the run up to Easter, especially during the school holidays. We thought we’d share some of the best activities for kids in Madrid this Easter.
English language fun events
Crafts, dancing, yoga, Easter egg hunts and other such surprises await children who sign up to the school holiday camp. Aimed at youngsters between 3 and 10 years old, this English language immersion camp run by Hello English is a popular option with working parents and frazzled grandparents offering a focus on fun interactive projects, storytelling and creativity.
La Casita de Inglés in Pozuelo are also running a five-day fun camp for youngsters that includes games, storytelling and crafts.
Kids English Club will be running a traditional egg dyeing workshop on March 25 from 5 to 7pm. Aimed at children aged 3 upwards, this is a fun activity where everyone speaks English and enjoys learning about Easter eggs.
Secret Kingdoms will be running a story telling session (free of charge) from Tuesday 4th of April until Saturday 8th of April at 11:30h for families with children aged 2 to 7 years old.
Easter camp on the beach (1st – 4th April)
There are still a couple of spots left for an English-language beach holiday camp in Oliva for children aged 6+ for a cost of 300 EUR. Transport from Madrid is available on request. For more details, send a WhatsApp to 656854452.
Spanish immersion for children
Many of the Madrid Metropolitan’s readers are visitors who have settled in the capital with their young families. LAE Kids are experts at helping young people find their feet and improve their confidence in Spanish.
Their Easter Holiday classes have become increasing popular, where kids do workshops, visit museums and learn about food and culture (tasting tortilla de patatas and torrijas along the way).
Every Easter Madrid gears up for tourists and the range of activities is impressive. There are solemn religious parades, marching bands, noisy drumming competitions (known as La Tamborrada) and classical music concerts.
For full details (in English) check out the city council’s website. Given how busy the city can become over this week, some visitors opt for guided tours, a favourite being one that shows you the city by way of its tapas bars! For a more personalised tour, we recommend contacting Madrid Adventures.
