Today there was an Easter Egg Hunt funded by a church in the neighborhood. Everyone who lives on our street received an invite which if I had to guess I would say about 15 homes give or take. We arrived and nobody showed except for two other families besides ours. The field had been covered with Easter eggs 400 to be exact! I think there was about 12-15 kids. They all had something to put the eggs in. The coordinator lined the kids up and said go and off they went! Everyone was guaranteed to have eggs. Even the little ones like my daughters age 4. The children had a big smile the whole time. None of the kids played rough and they all left happy talking about their bags and containers full of eggs and the goodies each one was a new surprise.

Less people - more eggs to go around.

I agree nothing worse than attending a public event with a bunch of ill behaved kids who's parents do nothing to correct the behavior.

I am glad that the kids had fun, it's a shame we do not have the Easter eggs hunt tradition here.

I was going to do it for my kids if we could not find a public event but they did it a whole week before so we will do one on Easter day for our kids on our property and invite a few of the neighbors kids. Either way whether other kids come or not my kids will have a good time. Our plan is to recreate the appearance of the colorful egg filled field.

@lokisdad It has been a beautiful sunny day today, according to the tradition, if the Palm Sunday is sunny we have rain the day of Easter.

Wow, it's a good event and I am hearing it for the first time as I have never seen any games like this before. It looks like a cool activity for the kids.

It is nice the community churches usually do events like that one a few times a year to help out the less fortunate kids. They do a summer lunch program which my kids have both attended and enjoy a lot. They play games sing learn do projects and its educational. At the end of the summer lunch program they do a back to school giveaway where they give them back packs with school supplies.They do a big cookout and rent a bounce house for the kids. Free for everyone to come. There are not many places it seems that does things like that.

@lokisdad It's really amazing what they do for the kids in your place. The best thing in the world is making someone happy. Having these kinds of activities help in improving the social skills in kids. I will check out if any activity like these takes place in my place. Thanks for sharing :)

That is wonderful. I am glad they had so much fun. It is too bad that more families did not participate but all the more for those who did.

It was colder than we expected it to be so that also may have played a part in all of it.

@Happy2BeMe We wanted it to finish about 10 minutes in because it was chilly and windy. In the evenings the sun isn't as bright or as warm so we were ready to go.

The church organised a very interesting event for children. And It's good to see that finally children had so much fun.

The church here tries to do a lot of the community and it has been around for many years some of the church goers have been attending the church since they were kids.
