Sadly, this is the first time in over a decade we will not be able to hold our annual Spring Egg Hunt.  We will certainly miss the adorable excitement from our children as they hunt for eggs and treat.  In case you don’t have plans already – here are some great innovative Egg Hunt ideas that you can do at home!
