Bring your kids down to the Bank of England Museum for their annual Easter Eggs-travaganza (apologies for the terrible pun).

It's not easy getting your kids interested in the history of London, but the Bank of England have come up with an egg-cellent idea (another terrible pun, sorry) -- they are going to bribe them with chocolate!

For ten days over Easter they'll be hiding some brightly decorated eggs all around the museum and your kids will have to follow a trail to find them. If they manage to complete the (extremely easy) trail then they'll be able to claim a small prize at the end.

They will also be able to make some rabbit, sheep and chicken masks, and colour in some finger puppets.

Craig has never been on this treasure hunt, but he has been to the Bank of England Museum and written a review on his blog, which you might like to read before you go.

But not because of the money. I don't really care about the history of the bank -- I like it because there's lots of architectural history on display inside here. They have cabinets full of old photos and paintings and drawings… continued”
