Help me to find a holiday please!

Options
I'm looking for a cheap package deal to the Canaries for 7 - 10 days for 2 adults and 2 children (aged 1 and 4). I'm restricted by the school holidays and need to fly any time from 1st April, but be back by 17th April. Do I book now, or wait a couple of weeks for a late deal? Anyone know what a good price would be for this? I'd want a minimum of 3* accomodation.

Any help would be appreciated!
Make £10 a day in January 2014 - £39.68 / £310
