Smarty Scoop on Easter Bunny Events!

By Katie M

Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down just about every bunny trail in the Triad! With your help, we've gathered a great list of egg hunts, bunny photo opps, and other fun Easter events to take you through the holiday and even after. And please add to our list! If you know of a family-friendly Easter event, add it in the comment section below.

Also Greensboro Smarties, take note: The Center for Visual Artists (CVA) is hosting art-filled days when Guilford County Schools are out for Spring Break, called Artventure Days. For only $25 per day, parents can provide their children with a day of creative exploration without breaking the bank. It will run from Friday, March 26 – Thursday, April 1. Young artists Pre-K through 5th grade can spend the day with the CVA sharpening their artistic skills and unleashing their imaginations. On these art sampler days, students will draw, paint, sculpt, and play the day away. For more information about Spring Break Artventure Days, contact The Center for Visual Artists at (336) 333 - 7475 or click their link above.

Thank you for this great list. I haven't decided, yet, what to do for Easter with the kids. I know we will be doing an Easter family dinner and an egg hunt at our house.
