Craig Brightly colored plastic eggs, considered a precious treasure just minutes before, sit discarded in cardboard boxes as kids feasted on the treasures inside them Sunday afternoon at Sandrock Ridge Care & Rehab.
Dashing back and forth, several egg hunts took place all around the building for different age groups.
McKenzie Guevara, 10, and Nevaeh Lira, 8, cracked open their eggs together to assess their loot.
Chocolate, candy and stickers filled baskets while kids hunted for the special silver and gold eggs.
Kids who found silver and gold eggs received a gift card as a prize.
For some, it was their only egg hunt, while others had plans for more in the afternoon.
Sandrock residents watched as kids scrambled to gather more eggs than their siblings. Anthony Stene, 4, and Carson Sharp, 2, showed their grandma the candy they’d collected while visiting her at the center.
Eve Shingleton took her girls to the hunt and said she liked the opportunity Sandrock provided, telling the girls to thank the nurses before leaving.
Not everyone spent their Easter hunting for eggs. While the young enjoyed the hunt, residents enjoyed watching and visiting with family over lunch.
