Easter is just around the corner and you know what that means? That’s right! Some giant rabbit is going to hide eggs all over the place. When you think about it this seems kind of ridiculous and probably shouldn’t make much sense. But when you’re five years old this makes perfect sense, especially when those eggs are made of chocolate or other tasty goodness
Now I’m sure you have an awesome egg hunt planned for your family on Easter morning. However there are some fun egg hunts happening all over the area in the week leading up to it.
On April 16th the Eggs’travaganza takes place at the Southfield Pavilion from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. On top of an egg hunt there will also be an obstacle course, themed games and other activities. Visit www.cityofsouthfield.com for more information.
On April 20th, if you are up for a change of pace you can go on the Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt in Novi. Kids will search for eggs with a flashlight, make a craft and have pictures taken with the Easter Bunny. To register for the Flashlight Easter Egg Hunt visit www.cityofnovi.org.
April 23rd will give you the most opportunity for egg hunt egg-citement (sorry for the corny egg pun but I couldn’t resist.) First you can visit the Children’s Museum in Detroit and participate in their Golden Easter Egg Hunt. Kids will hunt for 12 eggs in exhibits throughout the museum. If they find all twelve they win a prize. If they find the golden egg they will be entered to win a basket filled with Easter goodies. For more information visit www.detroitsciencecenter.org/dcm.
Also on April 23rd three different Metroparks will be holding their own Easter egg hunts. Kids can visit Stony Creek Metropark, Indian Springs Metropark or Willow metropark and have all sorts of fun searching for eggs. For more information, visit www.metroparks.com.
April 23rd will also play host to one the most unique egg hunts of the season. The Hartland Egg Drop will feature 30,000 eggs dropped from a helicopter. There will be three separate zones for different age groups so kids ages 3 to 12 will have equal opportunity to search for eggs. All eggs will contain candy, toys or a special prize! The event takes place at Hartland Middle School. For more information please visit www.conerstonehighland.com.
So whether you visit one of these community egg hunts or just have your own family egg hunt in the privacy of your home. I’m sure you and your family will have a great time on your search!
