Games & Hunting Easter Eggs

The Home & School Association at school provides an Easter egg hunt and games each year for the students of Sacred Heart Elementary.  The hunt is usually the weekend before Easter, but this year because of bad weather the hunt was held the day before Easter.
 For an hour the students get to play games and win small prizes in the commons area of the school.  Some of the games were potato sack races, an egg spoon race, bean bag toss, bowling, etc.
 Ashlin and Justin tried their chance at many games.  Justin loved the bean bag toss games because he could always win a good prize.  He also loved the pick a duck game.
 Justin gave bowling a try.  He won a pinwheel as a prize after knocking down the pins.
 Naturally, the students in Kindergarten and Pre-K got to hunt first.  If you look close, you will see Justin standing in the front waiting for Mr. Berryman to say, "Go".
 Each student at this age could find 8 eggs.  Justin had to count as he picked up each egg.
 The next age group racing out the door was the 1st-3rd graders.
 Ashlin's group could find 12 eggs.  Ashlin stayed close to the front doors and found all her eggs by a few trees.
 Lastly were the 4th-6th graders.  This group was by far the smallest number of students and each student probably found about 20 eggs.
Cara felt that she was too old to hunt eggs, but Erica still had fun with her friends hunting eggs filled with candy.

Take care,


  1. Who doesn't love an Easter egg hunt! Ours was rescheduled to the day before Easter too and we missed it because we were out of town. Hope your kiddos shared the candy with you!

  2. Cara's too old. :( Carter is the same now!

  3. Easter egg hunts are the best. Cute pictures! Carson didn't hunt much this year either! Our punks are growing up! Boo hoo!
