the murray egg hunt was a disaster, it says a lot about people when full grown adults push little kids just to get in before anyone else, i will not be going back.

my daughter was among the 95 percent of kids that got absolutely nothing, thats not the point. the point is the fact that i had 2 adults push her to get in front of us, one girl had the fence almost take her eye out, it was conducted horribly, its about kids having fun insted it becomes a chaotic mess.
totally agree

It was a disaster. Since we were in the middle of the line by the time we got in there wasn't anything left. Had it not been for a few nice parents the kids wouldn't have gotten to find anything.

You must be new parents. The Murray Easter egg hunt is always like that. Matter of fact every Easter egg hunt is like that, when they allow the parents to hunt for eggs as well. I guess you live and learn.

I am not new to it. My oldest is 12 and the youngest is 6 years old. Last year they let all of the children and parents into the field and had them line up around the fence. Then once everyone was in they all "hunted". It was much better than this year. It doesn't have to be chaotic no matter how many children are involved.

It would be easier and more fun to go to the store, buy the plastic eggs, fill them, hide them around your home and have the kids hunt for them.

The funny part of all of this is that these are the same complaints that parents had about the public egg hunts 20 or so years ago. It's the same at EVERY public egg hunt.

Like I said, Bed Bug Bob, we were new to this, this year. Thanks. and yes, I will learn from it- because I'm never taking him to the park to hunt again. Too much disappointment!

Maybe next year try one at a local church. We go to our church every year and sometimes a friends church. My child always walks out with quite a few eggs and has a wonderful time as well. Our church also has crafts, games and serves refreshments as well. I think most of the local churches do this. I never attend the one at the park because of experiences like yours. The one on the court square is a little better. You can usually get your fair share of eggs but they are all filled with butter mints and stickers. At least they were the last 4 years anyway.

Big bad dad- lol... I just think that people in charge should have made it more fair for every child... and Maggie, I think I will try one of the churches, thank you for your advice! oh and btw each egg at the courtsquare had a temp tattoo, butter mint, and 1 silly band... LOL so I guess it hasnt changed, but at LEAST all the kids got a few each, so i was def more enjoyable than the park :) thanks!
