Hunting for some Easter activities that are a little more family-friendly? We have got eggs-actly what you need, with this guide to some of Brooklyn’s best hunts and activities. Get hopping!

Golden eggs

Because there is nothing small children enjoy more than hanging out with politicians, State Sen. Marty Golden is once again hosting a free egg hunt at Shore Road Park in Bay Ridge for the voters of tomorrow. In addition to the hunt, there will be an Easter bonnet contest, games, and music.

Shore Road Park [Shore Road at 79th Street, (718) 238–6044, www.golden.nysenate.gov]. April 12 at 2 pm. Free.

Farm-fresh eggs

Kids can hunt for eggs then find out where they actually come from, when Marine Park’s Aviator Sports and Events Center hosts a weekend of farm-style Easter festivities. Green Meadows Petting Farm will bring kid-friendly critters to play with, as well as offering hayrides and a butterfly house.

Aviator Sports and Events Center [3159 Flatbush Ave. off the Belt Parkway in Marine Park, (718) 758–7500, www.aviatorsports.com]. April 17–20 at 11 am–4 pm. $6.

BYO basket

Degree of difficulty is the name of the game at Greenpoint’s McGolrick Park, where there will be separate hunting areas for babies and toddlers. There will also be live music and craft activities, plus a visit from the Easter Bunny. Proceeds from the event will help science students from MS 126 go to a space camp in Turkey.

Monsignor McGolrick Park Pavilion (Russell Street between Nassau and Driggs avenues in Greenpoint, www.townsquareinc.com). April 19 at noon–2 pm. $10.

Twice as sweet

Easter candy not enough to sate your sweet tooth? The Brooklyn Heights Playground Committee’s annual hunt at Pierrepont Playground is hosting a fund-raising bake sale in addition to the offering seasonal sweet treats hidden around the park.

Pierrepont Playground [Columbia Heights at Pierrepont Street in Brooklyn Heights, www.bhplaygrounds.org). April 19 at 10 am. Free.

Bounce around

If Easter eggs send your kids hopping off the walls, let them expend their sugar-fueled energies at Brooklyn Boulders’ hunt. The indoor rock-climbing gym will hide hundreds of plastic eggs all over the gym for kids aged 5–12 to find. Once the hunt is over, youngsters can hang around until noon climbing for no extra charge.

Brooklyn Boulders [575 Degraw St. between Third and Fourth Avenues in Gowanus, (347) 834–9066, www.brooklynboulders.com]. April 19 at 9 am. $10.
