Last year, when Kolton and Piper were 1, we scouted out a few different spots to do Easter Egg hunts in our area. It was all for fun, to get them used to the idea of finding eggs and putting them in their baskets. It was really cute to watch, and to prepare them for the official Easter Egg hunt on Easter.
There were a few places last year that were over crowded and not very enjoyable. Ali and I are glad that we were able to find these places out last year, and didn’t try to revisit these spots this year. Everything is a little more difficult with two-year olds, especially us both being very pregnant.
One of our favorite spots was located at Almaden Lake Park in Almaden. The park itself is very big and scenic, with trails, a lake, multiple playgrounds and grassy areas to run and play. The egg hunt was separated into age groups and spread out on a fairly large grassy area. Kolton and Piper were in the 18 month to 3 year old group, and the prizes in the eggs were appropriate for this age, meaning no chocolates, candies or inappropriate toys.
This year, we booked our spots early and were looking forward to another fun experience. Luckily, we were not disappointed! The weather was perfect, and the eggs were plentiful. The Easter Bunny even came to make an appearance!
Since we booked in advance the cost was only $7 per child, which included parking and was well worth it. The egg hunt itself was pretty quick, but we stayed and let the kids run and play and scope out all of their cool new toys!
This is definitely going to become a tradition, one which we highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun place to hunt for eggs.
