Bomb squad builds beeping Easter eggs for visually impaired kids

It helps kids who can't see use their ears to try and find the eggs.

MCKINLEYVILLE In celebration of Easter, the McKinleyville Shopping Center will hold its annual Easter egg hunt Saturday at 10 a.m. Kids should meet by the small kiosk in the parking lot before 10 a.m.

Editor's Note: A previous version of this story credited DBMA as the sponsor for the Easter Egg Hunt in the headline.

The egg hunt first started four years ago when Walmart provided a donation of Easter baskets for the children. The Big Bend Bomb Squad assembled the eggs on Tuesday just in time for the annual hunt. They will be divided into 3 areas for the hunt, according to age.

So, with the likes of Easter treats, Wren Kitchens found that the Malteser Bunny is the healthiest choice, coming in at 156 calories.

There'll be no crying over melted chocolate, with organisers keeping the tiny eggs chilled pre-hunt, using a portable coolroom.

In many countries, lamb is eaten as the main Easter Day meal.

When: Saturday, March 31, 10:30 a.m. The cut-off age for egg hunting is 10.

10-12 age group hunts at 11:15 a.m. The divisions are: ages 2-4; ages 5-7; and ages 8-10.

Up to 170 people will be part of each of the 40 hunts, with children less than three making up the youngest age category.
