The Great Legendary Easter Hunt
And...what happens on a Legendary Easter Hunt?
We'll start off in the Birthday Barn listening to the Legend of the Easter Bunny! (hmmmm...what's the Legend?) Once we hear what the Easter Bunny needs each of the children to do (he really appreciates their help!), then it's off with our baskets to do his bidding with a special hunt. When the children find the items the Easter Bunny needs, they'll send them down the tunnels to the Easter Bunny's Secret Workshop where he'll magically turn them into Easter Eggs. While the Easter Bunny's busy working away, everyone heads down to the Prairie Palace to do another job for the Easter Bunny. Every child fills a little pot with soil and then plants some quick-growing seeds; the children take them home to water and watch them grow!
