Hayden hosts 2 Easter egg hunts this week

Hayden youngsters can get ready for Easter Sunday by enjoying two Easter egg hunts this week.

The first Easter egg hunt will be for ages 6 and younger. It will take place at 10 a.m. Thursday at the Hayden Public Library.

One or two Easter stories will be read first, and then the children will be split into two age groups, with the 1- and 2-year-olds going one direction and older children going in another direction.

For years, the hunt was held outside, and will be again “if it is gorgeous,” library staffer Cindy Leck said. Twenty to 35 children are expected to hunt for the 400 or so candy-filled plastic eggs which will be scattered all over the library, in between books, on shelves, in plants and other secret locations.

The Hayden Recreation Board will host another hunt at 11 a.m. Saturday at Hayden Town Park.

The Easter Bunny has made plans to attend this hunt, which will have 864 candy-packed eggs scattered all over the park, Recreation Board member Tracey Rogalski said. It is for children ages 8 and younger.
