Have you been to an Easter Egg hunt for children who are blind or visually impaired? Have you thought about starting one? These events are a wonderful time for the entire family and are also a good place to practice those mobility skills.

Here is information for a recent beeping egg event held in Florida, and a search on Google finds many more spread across the country.

If you would like to learn how to set up an event in your community we have an article written by David Hyche, Instructions for Beeping Easter Egg Hunts for Visually Impaired Children, which gives you all sorts of ideas. The site WonderBaby also has good information on commercially available talking eggs and using real grass in your basket.

These are great toys to use if you participate in Easter egg hunts but also are a fun way to stimulate a “treasure hunt” year round that helps to sharpen those auditory skills.
