Easter Egg hunts are a traditional Easter activity around the world, as kids and kids at heart scramble to find hidden chocolate treasures.
The pandemic has forced the cancellation of this traditional holiday fun, with even the famous “White House egg roll” in the US cancelled for the second time in its 140-year history.
However some organizers have come up with unique ways to enjoy an Easter Egg hunt in isolation. Communities are organizing “Virtual Easter egg hunts” to bring a little joy and excitement to Easter in isolation. Large colored paper “eggs” are decorated and hung in windows, allowing locals to drive past and spot the “eggs’ in the windows.
A New Brighton resident refused to allow the coronavirus to spoil the fun of Easter for local children. Donning her traditional Easter Bunny costume,”Miss Bunny Hop” has organised pre-filled baskets of Easter goodies, which will be handed out to children in a drive-through Easter egg hunt at the town’s local supermarket.
