Easter egg hunts galore (Mar. 19 to Apr. 11)

March 18, 2009

You can tell it’s spring break, can’t you? My posts are all less than 100 words long and free of cluttery insights! I look forward to getting back to a normal schedule, but for now, I’d best get right into action with the events, ’cause it’s nearly Easter Bunny time and if your kids are like mine, they’re getting a little carried away already over that impending holiday.

Tomorrow (March 19) St. Louis Mills Mall hosts the first Easter egg hunt of the season — preceded by the arrival of the Easter Bunny, naturally. The free event (targeted at kids 8 and under) begins at 10 a.m. near the play area. The mall’s parent company has put some info on its homepage, but there’s no direct link so you’ll have to click around under events to find it. The bunny photo ops continue until Easter … making me wonder since when is it necessary to have the kids photographed with yet another costumed character at the mall? As if Santa didn’t freak my kids out enough … But they love egg hunts, so perhaps they’d take to the bunny more easily.

If you miss out tomorrow, here are a few other egg hunts in the coming weeks — note that they begin this weekend!  All of these were recommended to me last year, so I think they’ll each be worth a visit:

If your kids are too old and too cool for these but you still want to get in on the fun, I won’t even begin to list all the adults-only egg hunts!  They’re multiplying like rabbits!  But I do have a two  suggestions for dog owners:

  • The Fourth Annual Canine Easter Egg Hunt, 2 p.m. (registration opens an hour earlier), April 4, courtesy of the Hawthorne Animal Hospital in Troy, Ill., $3 per dog.
  • Doggie Easter Egg Hunt, 1 p.m. (registration opens at 12:15 p.m.), April 4, in Brentwood’s Hanley Park courtesy of the Mid-County YMCA and APA of Missouri, $10 per dog.

  2. […] resist a good Easter egg hunt! Although I intended to limit myself to one post on this topic (check out this list if you missed it the first time around,) there are just too many good ones out there not to share […]
