Easter Egg Hunts

First, a few tips for egg hunts.
1. Many require advance registration. (This is true for all kinds of events, not just egg hunts.)
2. Some events have different times for different age groups. This can be hard when you have multiple kids, so plan accordingly.
3. Be on time – those eggs go quickly!
4. Don’t forget to bring your baskets, or whatever you use as a “basket.”
