Looking for things to do this Easter holiday? Why not spend your time having arty fun with Tate? You can start right here with the Tate Kids games and films, or maybe you’re planning on visiting London, Liverpool or St Ives? Tate’s got something for you!
Family trails for under 5s
Go on a journey around Tate Britain and post your discoveries into your POST IT! box as you go. When you get home you can open up the box and show your friends what you found. Or you could follow the JOIN UP! trail: play the listening game, search for shapes, patterns and talking hands . . . and make your own sculptures.
Tate’s famous Art Trolley will be out every day during the holidays. Never been to see it before? Get creative with loads of things to make and do (and colour and stick), and be inspired by the amazing artworks all around you.

Tell Your Story
Be inspired by performances from storytellers, poets and rappers, in free family activities which capture the spirit of Afro Modern, the current exhibition at Tate Liverpool.
There’s also a Crackin’ Easter Trail to try across a selection of Liverpool’s most amazing museums. Collect a stamp at each activity to be in with a chance of winning fantastic prizes from all the venues involved!
UBS Openings: Family Zone
At weekends and during holidays, UBS Openings: Family Zone offers great activities to get you exploring the galleries in new ways. Check it out!
Psst – Did you know there are special activities for Families at Tate Modern every day? You can get an UNSketch book to draw in, or follow the Seen/Unseen trail to discover things about the gallery that you never knew before. Best of all, you get a complimentary pencil and cool Tate bag!
There’s also the multimedia guide for children, which includes videos and all sorts of extra information about your favourite Tate artworks, all put together with video, music and games in a cool little gadget with a stylus and headphones . . . wicked!
TATE ST IVES
There’s loads going on at Tate St Ives, like the beautiful Barbara Hepworth Family Activity Trail, the Hands in Art creative play sessions for younger children, Super Sundays with hands-on creative activities for adults and children to enjoy together and Walkabout Talkabout – tours that will trake you on an extra special journey into the latest exhibition to make discoveries of your own . . .
AND BEST OF ALL (YOU’LL LOVE THIS PART) KIDS EAT FREE!
There’s a special children’s menu in the restaurants at Tate Britain and Tate Modern this Easter, including homemade cottage pie or fish fingers and delicious desserts such as fruit skewers or fromage frais with mango sauce. Nom nom nom!
Children under the age of 12 eat for free when accompanied by an adult selecting two courses from the a la carte menu. Get in quick, because this offer closes on 16 May 2010.
So, what are you waiting for? With this much to do, we’re sure you’ll keep busy this holiday with Tate!
