Easter Egg Hunt

Photobucket

Today was our community Easter egg hunt and craft day. We ended up with about 45 children. The main thing that made me happy was that many of them were from the community and that was the main point of the day. We wanted to provide fun activities for the children, while chatting with the parents. Each child got to take home a goody bag with an invitation to our Easter services tomorrow.

The day dawned bright and beautiful with the temperatures climbing into the 70s.

The children chose from a few different crafts to put together.

Then they went outside for the egg hunt. I had different areas designated for different age groups which seemed to work well.

The two and under crowd had their egg hunt on our enclosed playground which made it nice for the parents.

Then everyone came back in for cupcakes and juice.

I'm throwing in these next two because they made me laugh. I was asking who was in charge of something and no one would own up to it.

Our wonderful deaconesses who put together the refreshments and decorations for today and tomorrow's sunrise breakfast. They do a great job!

The children went home happy and everyone had a wonderful time!
