With Easter arriving April 1 this year, the Easter Bunny and the egg hunts will be showing up in March. We’ve put together a sampling of great Easter-inspired events happening this month.
Kidspace Children’s Museum (www.kidspacemuseum.org) will devote two days to egg hunts this year. On March 24 and 31, children can search for candy-filled eggs in the museum’s Arroyo Adventure at 10:30 and 11:30 a.m. and 1, 2 and 3 p.m. They can also meet real rabbits, learn the bunny hop and create spring-themed art. Museum admission is $14, and egg hunts cost $6 extra per participant. Online pre-registration for the hunt is required.
Out in the Conejo Valley, the eggs come out after the sun goes down. The Flashlight Egg Hunt & Hike from 7-9 p.m. March 23 on the Conejo Creek Playfield South in Newbury Park includes after-dark egg hunts throughout the evening, a Glow Zone and an Egg Hunt Hike. Admission is $3, and the Egg Hunt Hike is $2. Learn more at www.crpd.org/events/flashlight_egg_hunt!.asp.
Egg hunts and the Easter Bunny are part of the Easter Hoppening from 3-6 p.m. March 23 at Malibu Bluffs Park. For $5, kids can have their photo taken with the Easter Bunny, hunt eggs with kids their age and make art with Makers Mess. Learn more at www.malibucity.org/specialevents.
