Our momstown Milton tots were all hyped up in anticipation of our Annual Easter Egg Hunt. In past years the hunt has been held outdoors at Rotary Park but since Mother Nature had been very unpredictable this year, we decided to move the event indoors just to be safe. A big shout out goes to Kidz Korner for offering their facility to us on such short notice!
The kids were absolutely adorable dressed in their Easter attire and were very excited to see a table full of goodies that the mamas had brought for our potluck snack after the hunt. We especially enjoyed some really cute itsy bitsy cupcakes that were donated by Mona from Dessert by Me! They were just the right size for little hands to handle! Brilliant idea!
The little ones scoured high and low for the eggs and did not stop until their baskets were full. The mamas were pleasantly surprised as the kids revealed that there was a variety of treats such as bouncy balls and stickers with a few chocolates in the mix. Even the infants were kept occupied with a special treat of bubbles for them to observe as they floated in the air above.
The next activity involved an egg and a spoon. The kids had to balance the plastic egg on a large spoon and walk around without dropping it. This activity helped to work on skill sets such as balance, hand and eye coordination and patience. You could see the intense concentration on their faces and how proud they were once they had mastered the task. Way to go!
Then the floor was opened up for free play and snack time. There were some difficult choices to be made between the ball pit, the tunnels and the train station or the tasty delights that were waiting at the snack table! In the end everyone got to sample a bit of everything and left with a smile on their face!
Easter activities have been going on in all of our momstown chapters this week. Don't forget to check out our momstown arts and crafts blog for some great craft ideas to keep the little ones occupied this Easter Weekend!
