Easter isn’t too far away, and you may be looking for great ideas for those Easter basket treats. As always, the goal is for everyone to have fun and stay safe. So, here are some tips to make sure that’s eggs-actly what happens!

- Hunt Safely
Easter egg hunts are great fun, but make sure to limit the chance for injury. Consider having separate ‘hunting’ areas for children of different ages/abilities. Little kids can easily be stepped on or knocked down in all the excitement. Also, don’t hide eggs near electrical outlets, around glass, or under thorny plants.
While a treat basket and an egg hunt may be a traditional way to celebrate Easter, there are other things you might want to consider. You can create handmade crafts, make a special family meal, or even participate in a volunteer activity in the community like planting a tree or tending a community garden.
