Sunday World - - News - The Ad­ven­tures of Padding­ton Bear Care Bears Shaun the Sheep Wal­lace and Gromit. The New Ad­ven­tures of Winnie the Pooh

DON T let the kids drive you crazy on the long road trip this Easter week­end with five first-rate shows to keep them en­ter­tained (and quiet!).

Tech­nol­ogy means that long drives with the whole fam­ily are not quite the ex­er­cise in pa­tience they once were.

In­stead of play­ing end­less rounds of I Spy with my Lit­tle Eye, tablets and smart­phones mean there are a hun­dred ways to stave off bore­dom. Today you have ac­cess to loads of en­ter­tain­ment, mu­sic, au­dio­books, pod­casts and games on de­mand. Take stream­ing TV from ShowMax for ex­am­ple.

Their apps let you down­load up to 25 se­ries and movies to watch off­line for up to 30 days on your An­droid or Ap­ple tablet or smart­phone.

This is su­per con­ve­nient as you don t have to worry about rack­ing up a mam­moth phone bill dur­ing your holiday as you can use your home (or of­fice) Wi-Fi be­fore you leave.

While we may not have an ac­tual Easter bunny in the lineup, here s our pick of five cute and cud­dly sub­sti­tutes avail­able on ShowMax.

We love this car­toon re­make of the clas­sic tales. One thing s for cer­tain, wher­ever Padding­ton goes, there s sure to be chaos and laugh­ter!

These sweet lit­tle bears were huge in the 1980s and now they re back on screen to de­light a whole new gen­er­a­tion of young­sters with their fluffy world in the clouds.

Maya the Bee She may not be quite as fluffy, but she s got loads of at­ti­tude and a real sense of ad­ven­ture. To­gether with her friends, she s got mes­sages to share about the won­der­ful world of na­ture that sur­rounds us all.

Head to the farm­yard with this stop-mo­tion an­i­ma­tion spin-off se­ries from

Shaun the Sheep is the leader of his flock and he s up to no good, head­ing off on crazy ad­ven­tures.

Head on down to the Hun­dred Acre Hood where beloved char­ac­ters Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Eey­ore, Go­pher, Owl, Kanga and Roo land up in all kinds of un­ex­pected sit­u­a­tions.

Also, take the kids to The BIG Rand Show 2016. For roughly what you d pay to take the fam­ily for a movie and pop­corn, you can load up the car and head off and en­joy big bangs, jets and tanks with the SANDF.

Ev­ery day two science stages will present non­stop science ac­tion, with the Naked Scientist, the Kala­hari Scientist and Nutty Scientist. There s also the Edu­dome mo­bile plan­e­tar­ium, Destruc­tobots 2016 and the First Tech Ro­bot­ics Chal­lenge, plus much more.

There s also a giant soc­cer ac­tion zone brought by Span­ish Football League LaLiga, and tram­po­line dis­plays. And of course there s the fun­fair (rides not in­cluded in the en­try ticket). The Rand Show ends on April 3.
