[This is the 2014 post for Easter activities for East Bay Kids]
What does Easter look like for a Jewish atheist family? I still don’t know. We follow along with friends every year, uncertain what our own traditions are. I think my kids like to celebrate – they’ll decorate for pretty much any occasion – so I’m game. Let’s get this Easter party started. Here are a bunch of local events where you can show your kids a little bit of Easter fun.
Eggster Egghunt and Learning Festival – On the Cal campus, this free event put on by student volunteers will be from 10-3 pm and feature 40 learning activity booths in addition to an egghunt.
Egg week at Habitot – for toddlers and preschoolers, the activities in Habitot’s art studio will be spring themed. Best for kids 2-3.
Egg hunt at Pump It Up – three separate sessions on Friday will incorporate plastic egg hunting into bouncing around in Oakland’s Pump It Up’s huge inflatables.
Annual Egg Hunt in El Cerrito – Arlington Park offers an egg (candy) hunt on Saturday for kids, who will be divided by age.
Easter Bunny photo opp at Play Cafe – From 11 to 12.30, kids will be able to egg hunt at Play Cafe. Those who aren’t hunting can visit with the Easter Bunny.
Spring Egg Hunt Extravaganza – Willard Park in Berkeley will host a bunny petty zoo, a mini-carnival for kids, along with the age-segmented egg hunt.
Dunsmuir-Hellman Historic Estate egg hunt – This Oakland mansion invites the public to an egg hunt with pony rides, face painting, and more.
