Looking for some local fun family activities this Easter weekend? Leave the hunting up to us, and then your kids!
Eggstreme Egg Hunting
Do your little ones race like rabbits through the usual egg hunt and need more of a challenge? Brooklyn Boulders in Gowanus is hosting a vertical egg hunt for 4 to 12 year olds. Climbing cottontails will search high and low for eggs and can look forward to a bunch of raffles and prizes.
Saturday March 26, 10am – 12pm. $20 per child.
A Hop in the Park
If you’re worried too much of the sweet stuff will result in hyperactive youngsters, then pack a picnic and head to the park. Prospect Park’s Audubon Center is running nature exploration activities where kids of all ages will learn about park animal winter survival tactics, how to identify birds and how to make their own tube of lip balm. Later Lefferts Historic House will host potato sack races, stilts, spoon races and more ($3 suggested donation).
Friday March 25 – Sunday March 27, 12 pm – 4 pm. Free.
Put All Your Eggs in this Basket
For a traditional egg hunt in Greenpoint, your chicks will love McGolrick! Kids up to 10 years old can bring a basket and participate in the finding frenzy or meet the Easter bunny and take part in arts and crafts activities. Babies and toddlers will roam in their own eggsclusive area, while older kids search for special eggs with prizes and raffle tickets inside.
Saturday March 26, 12pm. $15 per child, $20 at the door.
The Meadow is Always Greener
A good time is in the basket this Easter weekend, at Green Meadow Farms at Aviator Sports and Events Center, located within Floyd Bennett Field on Jamaica Bay. The urban farm will host egg hunts, hay rides and pony rides. There will also be a giant hay wagon slide, a petting zoo and the opportunity to meet Whiskers the Bunny.
Thursday March 24 – Sunday March 27, $8 per child.
