Auditory Easter Egg Hunt for Blind Children’s Learning Center Students
WHAT: Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort is pleased to welcome Blind Children’s Learning Center students for an Easter celebration to remember on Friday, March 30 from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The Santa Ana-based organization and seventy of its students, ages one to eight years old, will kick off the holiday weekend with a sensory Easter egg hunt featuring hundreds of special beeping eggs donated by OC Sheriff’s Department.
The plastic eggs, used as training devices for the OC Sheriff’s Department Hazardous Devices Section, will be carefully placed on the sand and in the grass throughout Newport Dunes’ expansive waterfront property. The beeping Easter eggs provide an innovative solution to help visually impaired children take part in a favorite Easter tradition.
Following the Easter egg hunt, each student will be given an Easter basket filled with candy and toys donated by AT&T Pioneers volunteer network who, along with the OC Sheriff’s Department, will be onsite during the event. In addition to participating in a number of tactile holiday activities, the kids will have the opportunity to visit and take photos with the Easter bunny himself. A beachfront picnic lunch for the children, staff, and volunteers will be provided by Back Bay Bistro.
WHEN: Friday, March 30, 10:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.
