You’ve got to love Easter weekend! We realize life gets busier and more complicated, which is why it’s worth enjoying that a good old-fashioned Easter Egg Hunt stays the same year after year after year. All you need are a few colored eggs and a basket. We hope you find a great Egg Hunt and have a special Easter weekend. (Don’t forget to give your Easter lunch host a one-of-a-kind Texas-themed hostess gift like this one to your left! You can find the best Texas-themed gifts at www.texastreats.com.)
As you know, your own backyard or front yard, living room, or local park is an excellent place for an Easter Egg Hunt. But sometimes, no matter how simple it seems, it certainly can be more fun finding a great Easter Egg Hunt in your area. We’d love to share with you a few great Easter Egg Hunts in the DFW area.
To begin, Trekaroo.com helps us with a few great reminders to enjoy “drama-free” Easter Egg Hunts:
- Go to an Egg Hunt where the children will be divided by age.
- Make sure your toddler stays away from the bigger kids who can sometimes be pushy in their quest for the eggs.
- Do not forget to bring your own basket!
