First Annual Easter Egg Hunt Recap + Giveaway!

Last Friday, we anxiously awaited an accurate weather forecast to predict how our second outdoor event {ever!} would begin: cancelled due to thunderstorms or would the skies clear just for our event?

THANKFULLY, the weather decided to hold off until Sunday {although it was a little chilly}, and we were able to host our first Dallas Moms Blog Easter Egg Hunt for 100 families!

We couldn’t have been more excited for the turn out of readers and families who came and the great businesses who jumped in to help make this event possible! Local businesses like Dr. George Orthodontics, Schwan’s Home Delivery, and Optimum Wellness Solutions all had fun goodies, prizes, and great information for families as they were waiting for the next egg hunt or activity.

We want to say a special thank our Co-Title Sponsor Richardson Dentistry for helping us put on another incredible event! Everyone enjoyed spending the day with you and your families!

Kids of all ages had a great time with some of the “extra” activities we had planned in addition to the “main” egg hunt events. Scribble Cakes generously set up a cupcake decorating station with an Easter theme. PinTwist Parties was passing out cute Pinterest-inspired treat bags with a little craft for the kids. Mrs. Nikkie’s Face Painting was also doing a great job of whipping up adorable Easter faces!

Overall, 1500 eggs were gathered, over 300 Pirate’s Booty were claimed, 75 See’s Candies lollipops were snagged, over 300 pouches from GoGo Squeez and Peter Rabbit Organics were grabbed, and hundreds of Easter Bunny photos were taken!

But the real reason we were there was to raise awareness during National Child Abuse Awareness Month and to help raise funds for Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center.
