Beeping Easter Egg Hunt for Children with Visual Impairments
OMAHA, NEB. – Boys Town National Research Hospital will host its annual Beeping Easter Egg Hunt for families with children who are visually impaired on Saturday, March 19, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. at the Hall of History on the Boys Town Campus, 14057 Flanagan Boulevard.
Children with visual impairments and their siblings are invited to bring a basket and search for Easter eggs that emit a beeping sound. Once discovered, eggs can be traded for assorted treats and prizes, including braille and large print books. Following the hunt, families will be treated to cookies, candy and fresh fruit. Additional activities include access to the Hall of History exhibits and photos with live animals including a lamb and a furry Easter bunny!
