• 5 Safety Tips for a Fun Easter Egg Hunt

    Make your Easter family brunch fun and accident-free with these tips
  • Having relatives over at your house this Easter? If you're holding your own Easter Egg Hunt with the kids, keep these safety reminders in mind:

    1. Give rules, set boundaries.
    Let the kids know what can and cannot be done while hunting for eggs (e.g., no running, stay within the garden area) to ensure their safety.

    2. Improvise.
    Real eggs can spoil if kept in hot temperatures for a long time. Use egg-shaped chocolates or toys wrapped in colorful paper or foil instead.

    3. Beware of choking hazards.
    Make sure the treats are sized just right.

    4. Use sunscreen.
    Avoid sunburn by applying sunscreen all over your child's body and extremities, especially if you're holding the egg hunt outdoors.

    5. Be thoughtful of younger kids.
    Set up a different activity for younger kids, such as a coloring station or a Play-doh area, so they could have fun, too.
