Egg Hunt

If you missed out on our curb-side pick up, have no fear! Pick up some plastic eggs at your local dollar store, and print some of these out. Take some time with your kids to think of neighbours or friends you want to share these with! Simply hide the empty egg(s) in their yard, leave the tag at their door, and allow them to be reminded of the true meaning of Easter- that Jesus is ALIVE!
