Kids set for a cracking Easter

March 28, 2013 by  

There are several Easter activities available with 45 minutes of Deer Park this year, with the Quogue Wildlife Refuge being just one wonderful place to celebrate the holiday with the family.

On Saturday, March 30 kids from ages 5 – 12 will be able to get ideas to create their own nest craft by inspecting the refuge’s egg and nest collection. After decorating a nest, kids will then be able to decorate hard boiled eggs. Participants should bring and old shirt to wear over their clothes while painting to avoid spoiling their best clothes.

The cost is $5 per child and there will be two sessions available: 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Each session is 45 minutes long.

Flyer printing is a wonderful way to let the community know about upcoming Easter events, and it would be no surprise if some had been carried out to promote goings-on at the same location on Sunday, March 31, when kids can create their own bunny and participate in an Easter egg hunt.

This day is geared towards younger kids (aged 2 – 4). Each child will receive a gift and must be accompanied by an adult. Admission is $10 per child. Sessions are an hour long and begin at 9:30 am and 11:00 am.

As well as these offerings, kids can eat breakfast with the Easter Bunny at 8:30 am or 11:00 am at the Garden City Hotel on Sunday. The cost is $32 per person and includes a buffet breakfast geared towards kids’ appetites. For reservations, call (516) 877-9385.
