We may not be able to attend our favorite events and holiday activities right now, but with a little help from our communities, we can still do an Easter Egg Hunt while practicing social distancing. Similar to the “Bear Hunts” and “Chalk Walks” we’ve seen popping up over neighborhoods across the country, our hunt works best when lots of neighbors (of all ages!) participate. So spread the word on your base and in your community!

Decorate your favorite egg anyway you’d like! 

Display your egg(s) in your front window for all to see by Wednesday, April 8th.

Egg Hunt April 9-12

Go hunt for eggs with your household and see how many eggs you can find! *Don’t forget* to take pictures of all the beautiful eggs you find and share with us on Facebook or Instagram, tag us @militarymomcollective, use #milmbegghunt, and share where you live. 

Let’s see how many neighborhoods and bases get represented!

Unable to leave your home?

Encourage all your surrounding neighbors to hang eggs where you can see them from different rooms of your house. Or set-up a zoom “block party” with your neighborhood showing off all of your colored eggs to each other.

After graduating with her B.A. in English, Amie worked in various fields with each military move, but never stopped writing. She has been a contributor for The Military Mom Collective since it was founded and finds joy in helping other moms connect in community. When she’s not writing or herding her adorable brood, you can find Amie working out at the local cross fit gym, binge-watching Hallmark movies, and actually enjoying chemistry while home-brewing with her husband.
