If you have not been to the Easter Extravaganza at Lauritzen Gardens, set aside a morning or afternoon to take your family.
Kids of all ages will enjoy the scavenger hunt through the garden, looking for Easter eggs. My family enjoyed a beautiful spring afternoon at the gardens, searching for eggs. Upon check-in with our tickets, the kids received a list of eggs to find, along with some spring activities. We then walked through the arboretum before embarking outside to find the eggs that are hidden throughout all areas in the gardens. There are also hidden golden eggs. If you find one of these, you can return it to the educational center for a special prize.
Throughout the garden, there are beautiful signs of spring.
My kids loved the brightly colored spring flowers as we hunted for eggs. This was also the first time that we’ve seen the lovely daffodil field coming into bloom, beginning to show hundreds of yellow flowers. As we explored, we spotted many turkeys running around the gardens, enjoying the spring afternoon. There are also many peaceful, quiet places with benches that allowed us to stop and relax for a while. We were there for about two hours for our hunt, and we managed to find most of the eggs on the list. Once we were finished with the hunt, we returned to the educational center, and the kids received some prizes for completing the scavenger hunt.
Every time we visit the gardens, there is always something different and special.
After a long winter, we loved soaking in the feelings of Easter, spring, and sunshine at Lauritzen Gardens.
