Easter egg scavenger hunt set in Crothersville


Crothersville residents aren’t letting the coronavirus and COVID-19 pandemic keep them from having an Easter egg hunt.

They came up with a safe way for families to participate.

Between noon and 2 p.m. Saturday, parents are invited to take their children on a walk throughout the community to find plastic Easter eggs hidden in the front yards of participating Crothersville homes.

Residents who want to have eggs placed in their yard should send their address in a message to Tiffany Reynolds on The Helping Hearts Facebook page, facebook.com/thehelpingheartsofcrothersville.

Children who place an Easter basket on their front porch that’s easily accessible also may receive a surprise from the Easter bunny.

James and Marilyn Hall of Crothersville came up with the idea for the communitywide Easter egg scavenger hunt. They reached out to Beauty from Ashes Tattoo Parlor and received help from Kyle McIntosh and his staff in helping coordinate and execute the event.

They also are partnering with the town of Crothersville, Crothersville Parks Board and The Helping Hearts.

“We will be helping the Easter bunny fill the eggs with goodies at Beauty from Ashes Tattoo under extra-sterile precautions, including frequent handwashing, gloves and masks, while preparing,” McIntosh said. “Also, eggs will be sanitized before packaging even though they will be placed outside.”

Parents are asked to escort their children to hunt the eggs because they will be placed all over town.

“We don’t want children crossing or roaming the streets unsupervised,” McIntosh said. “As always, safety is our No. 1 priority. Please remain social distancing while hunting. Hopefully, we can bring some type of normal to our Easter during this pandemic.”
