Easter Egg Hunt
Text by Anne Wong
The BCT’s annual Easter Egg Hunt arrived early in Basel this year.
Dozens of young families attended the sold-out BCT Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, 25th March.
What started as a dreary, drizzly morning didn’t stop eager bunnies from joining the crafting, dancing and family games at ELA, The Swiss British School of Basel. Afterwards, all scampered off to St. Alban Park when the sun finally peeked through where little paws raced to fill their baskets.
An egg-citing morning!
Upon arrival, ELA primary campus was buzzing with activity stations.
They include face painting, bunny-mask craft making and basket decorating.
Children tested their aims in the courtyard, knocking down stacks of tin cans with bean bags.
Meanwhile, steady hands scooped out colourful eggs.
You gotta hop ’til you drop.
The big highlight of the morning activities was the Zumbini demo class held in the school gym.
These were a fun, interactive mixture of music, singing and dancing for all ages, big and small, and incorporated simple props like shaker eggs, scarves and every child’s favourite…bubbles!
Bunny, I’m home!
The Easter Bunny also made a surprise appearance.
The special guest even kicked off a mini disco with all the families.
Then, everyone gathered their baskets and walked down to St. Alban Park.
What do all the eggs want to do when the egg hunt starts? Scramble!
As we went to the park, beautiful blue skies appeared, and the sunshine lit a path amongst the puddles.
Attendees were greeted with piles of coloured eggs peeking out from hiding spots and some in plain sight to make it easier for the tiniest bunnies among us.
Everyone gathered to assess their haul; several children shared their bounty with the younger ones who hadn’t mastered sprinting yet.
I have so many egg puns; it’s not even bunny.
Overall it was a fantastic event that brought joy to so many families.
We are looking forward to next year’s event. Until then, we are savouring the last little pieces of our collected Easter treats.
