We are beginning to brainstorm for our Easter Egg Hunt. Usually on Holy Thursday; last year didn't go as planned but was a success. I had invited two daycares to come hunt for Easter eggs with the residents. The residents spent two weeks stuffing eggs and helped me hide them around in the common area and around nursing station. I had fliers set up all month for candy and egg donations which worked well.
The day of the event neither daycares showed and I called no answer so I left to drive by and they were closed. Luckily I found another one across the street who agreed to come. Snacks and goodie bags were provided for the kids and they had a blast with the hunt. It lasted a whole 5 minutes but the residents enjoyed watching the kids.
It wasn't very interactive; kids took a photo with residents but that was about it. I need help with ideas on how to make this hunt more interactive for kids and seniors.
