This spring, you can find a ton of fun activities to celebrate the upcoming Easter season in the Lewisville area with the whole family. And what better way to celebrate Easter with the kids than with an exciting egg hunt? Thankfully, there are plenty of egg hunt events for all ages. Some hunts add a little something special, such as looking for eggs in the water or even in the dark with a flashlight.
Check out the events below and see which one is best for you and your family. Between picnics, petting zoos, and rides, most of these Easter egg hunt events have a lot more to offer than you might think.
Take Part in the Egg Hunt at Northview Baptist Church
Every year, the Northview Baptist Church in Lewisville hosts an egg hunt and petting zoo to provide fun for their congregation and anyone local who wants to stop by. In addition to the petting zoo, you can also expect a face painting station, popcorn, and other snacks.
The egg hunt is recommended for kids from birth to 5th grade. There are hundreds of filled eggs hidden all around the church grounds, which is more than enough to go around. Come with family, friends, and neighbors — the more, the merrier. The church is located at 1981 N. Mill St, Lewisville.
Get Your Flashlight Out at Easter Extravaganza Coppell
If you’re up to drive a little further, perhaps in a brand new Chevy that can get your family around comfortably and safely, you can enjoy the Easter Extravaganza egg hunt that is held every year at Riverside Church of Christ. This egg hunt takes place in the afternoon and evening.
In addition to the egg hunt, a petting zoo on the premises, and face painting, the Coppell Easter Extravaganza also provides train rides for the kids and a movie night for the whole family. Two different egg hunts take place during the event. The first hunt is aimed at kids of pre-K age and under, while the second one is a flashlight egg hunt geared towards kids of elementary school age.
Riverside Church of Christ is located at 150 E. Beltline Rd., Coppell. The event is free to attend, so bring the whole family and any friends who want to come along.
Relax With an Easter Egg Hunt and Family Picnic
If you want to have a pleasant, relaxing afternoon alongside your kids, the midday Easter Egg Hunt and Family Picnic at the Coppell Bible Fellowship is just what you need. The egg hunts are organized by age group, so your kids can participate in the fun no matter how old they are. Pack and bring your own picnic lunch, a couple of folding chairs or a nice big picnic blanket, and enjoy a beautiful Saturday out on the lawn.
The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 8. Coppell Bible Fellowship is located at 751 W. Sandy Lake Road, Coppell.
Go Underwater at the H2O Egg Dive
The town of Flower Mound hosts an annual event known as the H2O Egg Dive, which is an egg hunt with a twist: you have to look for your eggs in the water. Drive over to the Community Activity Center (CAC) Indoor Pool, less than a 20-minute drive away from Lewisville, to take part in the event on Saturday, April 8.
If your children don’t know how to swim yet, you must be in the pool with them at all times, and if your child is under the age of 3, they are required to wear a swim diaper while participating in the egg dive. After you’re done looking for eggs in the pool, chat and take a picture with the Easter Bunny, have fun with some of the arts, crafts, and games available, or simply splash around in the pool to your heart’s content.
To make sure you grab a spot, pre-register for the event. Entry costs $15 per person, and there are three morning egg dive sessions you can choose from at 9 a.m., 10:15 a.m., and 11:30 p.m. The CAC Indoor Pool is located at 2121 Cross Timbers Road, Flower Mound.
Enjoy the Spring Eggstravaganza at The Colony
Stop by The Colony Five Star Complex to enjoy a whole day of fun, games, and rides along with this year’s Easter egg hunt at the Spring Eggstravaganza. The event takes place on Thursday, April 6, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Let your kids loose on the fields, and watch them find all the hidden eggs, as well as the candy and prizes contained within. After that, take your picture with Peter Rabbit, who will be stopping by for a visit to spread some Easter cheer.
The whole family can make an Easter craft together and then spend some time in the entertainment zone. Your kids will love the giant slide, the Big Tex Express Train, and the many other fun activities this area has to offer. Make the petting zoo your last stop, and then head home with memories of a wonderful Easter-themed evening.
Egg hunts are organized by age group and will take place at different times on separate fields. Tickets cost $5 if you buy them in advance and $8 on the day of the event. However, tickets tend to sell out fast, so we highly recommend you purchase them beforehand. Tickets are only required for the egg hunt itself, as the other rides are free. The Colony Five Star Complex is at 4100 Blair Oaks Drive, The Colony.
