The hunt is on

It is the run-up to Easter and anyone with young children will be searching for a good Easter egg hunt to get the kids involved in. The charity egg hunt organised by Little Kickers Cyprus, Musical Steps and First Steps, is the one that all parents – or guardians – in Nicosia look forward to because they know that it is a fun-packed day.

This year the event will run at the Acropolis Park from 11am until 2pm on Sunday. There will be 5,000 eggs hidden all over the park, just waiting for the horn to sound and little feet to run up and down on the hunt for those different coloured eggs.

The hunt has been separated into two groups this year. The first is for kids up to four-years-old and it will be at the long stretch of grass next to the swings and slides. Kids over four should look for eggs in the main park area.

Once the hunt is over, you can visit one of four points where you can exchange the plastic eggs found in the park for the real chocolate ones – so you don’t have to worry about chocolate melting in the basket by the time the hunt is over.

When the hunt is over and the kids have counted their eggs over and over again – and then eaten most of them, then they can get involved in other activities. There will be face painting, scooters, arts and crafts, a ring toss, an African drums workshop, a photo booth and much more. Plus there will be dance show, story-telling time, and other presentations to keep the kids smiling.

City Markets will also be there with the usual enthusiasm for adventure and the outdoors. If the kids still have energy from all the running around they can jump up and down on the bouncy castle and the adults can have a nosy around the stalls.

Tickets for the egg hunt will go on sale at 10am to avoid long queues. All proceeds from the ticket sales will go to the organiser’s chosen charity to help with autism.

Last year the event had the children running around the Municipal garden, even when it started to rain, but this year it looks like we won’t have to worry about that, so happy hunting everyone.
