Gulf Coast Moms Blog Neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt


Unfortunately, Gulf Coast families may not be able to attend some of our favorite Easter festivities this year. Egg hunts always top the list as our favorite. With some help from our local neighbors, the kids can go on an Easter egg hunt while still practicing social distancing.

This concept is similar to the ‘bear hunts’ and ‘chalk walks’ we’ve seen popping up in neighborhoods all over America.  Families pack up in cars and golf carts and ride around neighborhoods looking for bears displayed in windows and porches.  It passes the time and the local children have truly enjoyed it.  

This egg hunt will work best if lots and lots of neighbors (young and old) participate. So, please share the info in your local neighborhood groups! 

Easter Egg Hunt

How It Works

  1. Download and print the FREE Easter egg coloring pages (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7). Tell your neighbors too!  The more, the megg-ier!
  2. Decorate your favorite egg any way that you want! Use colors, markers, paints and stickers.  
  3. Display your egg(s) in your windows by Wednesday, April 8th.
