The BCT Easter Event (Part 1 of 2).
On Sunday, 3rd April, the BCT‘s annual Easter Egg Hunt returned.
The event occurred after two years of absence due to Covid-19. While initially planned to run on Saturday, the 2nd of April, the late arrival of winter weather saw it moved to the scheduled “Plan B” date. Families were not put off by the cold, and those that came pulled out their winter wardrobes to brave the sudden temperature drop. Familiar and new faces celebrated the arrival of spring and Easter together.
There were so many fun activities.
The children created bunny ears and decorated easter bags. They also tested their skills at pinning the tail on the bunny while being blindfolded. Some were very talented; the reward of something sweet saw many trying multiple times.
The Easter Bunny appeared when the egg hunt was about to kick off, hopping around. The children followed close at its heels. It was a sight, especially with the little ones wearing their bunny ear creations.
The volunteers laid out the eggs, and the hunt began. Bags and baskets prepared, the children quickly searched for as many eggs as possible. It only took minutes before their baskets and bags were packed and bursting with colourful eggs.
Afterwards, the attendees got to try their hand at a couple of family games.
Parents and children all participated. We saw them racing the Easter Bunny in the egg and spoon race, valiantly trying not to drop the eggs on the ground and persevering not to fall over in the three-legged race.
All in all, it was a fun event to mark the upcoming Easter Holiday.
There was a mix of old and new faces coming together to enjoy the Sunday morning together. It was fun to see the children gleefully crack open the eggs searching for the little goodies. And so lovely to welcome so many families too.
Thank you, volunteers, sponsors and families.
