Don’t put all of the eggs in one basket!

Kids of all ages hunted for colorful Easter eggs and won tasty prizes — like cotton candy — during Our Lady of Grace Church’s annual egg hunt in Gravesend on March 12. And one youngster had so much fun filling up her basket that she wanted to bring the eggs home with her, said her grandmother.

“It was my first time there, and I took my two granddaugh­ters,” said Helen Barraclough, grandmother to 1-year-old Aaliyah Walker and 6-year-old Sarina Barraclough. “Aaliyah had fun, she wouldn’t let go of one of the eggs, but they said we could take it home.”

Another toddler — 2-and-a-half year old Kaylin Lam — wanted to spread the Easter love and share all of her eggs, her father said.

“She was so excited. She picked a lot of eggs, she tried to count them, and then people tried to grab her eggs,” said Kenny Lam. “She was sharing the eggs with the kids.”

Despite some feisty youngsters trying to steal what the Easter Bunny brought, the event was a huge success and a lot of fun, said Barraclough.

“I thought it was very well organized and really nice,” she said. “I really like the way they did it, and I will definitely be going back.”
