It’s Time for an Egg-cellent Adventure…
Flushing, N.Y. – March 19, 2010 – Got some egg-stra energy from eating too many chocolate bunnies and jelly beans? If so, head to the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Queens Zoo for its annual Egg–Stravaganza on Saturday and Sunday, April 3 and 4, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. to enjoy a day that’s a basket-full of amazing spring-themed games, crafts, egg hunts, and animals galore.
Although there are many fun activities planned, the weekend wouldn’t be complete without a meet-and-greet with the zoo’s very own Flemish giant rabbit. Weighing in at almost 20 lbs., Herman is one of the largest bunnies you’ll ever see.
More Egg-stravagant activities include:
Egg Quests – Many colorful eggs will be scattered around the zoo by our crafty keepers, ready to be found by zoo visitors of all ages. (Hunts will take place at various times throughout the day.)
Photo Hop-portunities – Capture the day by taking a picture with the Easter Bunny, who will be available all day.
Egg Jeopardy – Learn about the diversity of animal eggs, their shapes, colors, and sizes. Then, visitors will egg-knowledge what they’ve learned at the zoo’s very own Egg Jeopardy game.
Egg-citing Arts-and-Crafts – Kids will make beautifully decorated spring-themed magnets that will be symbolic of the season.
