Parents, make sure you go over the following helpful Easter egg hunting tips with your kids and share them with your friends before Saturday!

    Picking Proper Attire

    You'll be moving around a lot during the Easter egg hunt, which means dressing appropriately is very important! Parents, your little ones will no doubt be dragging you all over, so be sure you're both wearing loose-fitting, comfortable clothing that allows you to move around easily.

    Guys, we recommend your favorite pair of worn-in jeans or khaki shorts and a t-shirt. Ladies, it's an Easter egg hunt not a fashion show; leave the frilly blouses and designer duds in the closet!

    Make sure to stretch

    Just like any form of exercise, stretching out before the Easter egg hunt begins will help make sure you don't hurt yourself while running around the Cypress Black Bayou park searching for all the hidden eggs.

    Keep Your Eye on the Prize

    All the eggs will be hidden prior to the gates opening, which means neither you nor your little one will have any clue where to look! BUT since we're trying to be helpful, here's a little hint: don't only look where you'd expect. An Easter egg could be hidden anywhere!

    Play Safe

    No one is going to find any Easter eggs if they get hurt! Make sure to respect your fellow hunters. If they are close to finding an egg but you see it, don't rush in and try to grab it. The Golden Rule wasn't exactly written with Easter egg hunts in mind, but respecting it will keep everyone safe.

    Don't Overdo It

    It's hard to stop playing when you're having fun, but if you're feeling tired or out of breath during an Easter egg hunt you should probably take a short break -- even if you've only found a handful of eggs.

    Luckily, there will be PLENTY of eggs to find at Easter on the Bayou even if you need to sit down for a few minutes and drink some water.
