Hill Family Center Y in Westminster hosted egg hunts for all ages. The event included seasonal crafts, snacks and an opportunity for photos with the Easter bunny
After patiently waiting for her age group’s turn, seven-year-old Sophie Broyles raced onto the Hill Family Center Y’s snow-covered lawn to hunt for Easter eggs. Sophie was one of 125 kids who registered to participate in the Spring Eggstravaganza Saturday morning.
“It was a little harder to find the eggs because some were dug into the snow,” Sophie said after the hunt.
Program director Amanda Griffith said egg hunts were divided into age groups 0 to 2, 3 to 4, 5 to 6, and 7 and up. The oldest children were allowed to hunt outside in the snow. Participants also enjoy seasonal crafts including making a mosaic egg and make-your-own bunny ears, face painting, snacks and games plus opportunities to take pictures with the Easter bunny.
“I’m looking forward to eating the candy,” said Sophie, of Westminster. “I liked making the mosaic egg and the face painting. I got my picture taken with the Easter bunny. He gave me a high five!”
