From decorating eggs, eating chocolate bunnies and participating in an egg hunt, Easter is a special holiday for children.
This year, Kayla MacKinnon organized the ‘Easter Egg Hunt Antigonish!’
She decided to create the event on Facebook and see if other parents would be interested in the idea. As the numbers increased, the requirements and instructions were posted on the event’s page for the participants.
Twelve plastic eggs had to be filled with treats, stickers, etc. for each child attending. The eggs were collected a few days preceding the egg hunt in order to facilitate setup and distribution.
The Easter egg hunt gathered close to 30 children of all ages!
At the beginning of the event, Kayla’s son collected donations for the local food bank.
Once the group picture was taken, the children took off with their Easter baskets in hand searching for hidden eggs on the playground.
Parents were present and monitoring the event, as the kids were running around collecting their 12 eggs.
Young Easter egg hunters were eggstremely happy that the event took place…

… and Kayla’s son was happy to collect food donations for the local food bank too.
Kayla hopes to organize another Easter egg hunt next year.
Great event Kayla!
Enjoy your Easter treats everyone!
