Signs of spring are starting to pop up out of the ground and the days are getting longer. Easter is early this year, so it’s time to start thinking about how to make the day fun for the kids (and the whole family!) Thankfully, some local organizations have been thinking outside the basket to bring us ways to have fun while being safe. Be sure to check in with each organizer as dates approach in case mandates change. All are following safety protocols and require masks. Here are the 2021 Easter egg hunts in Skagit County.
Relay for Life of the PNW Egg My Yard Fundraiser
Deadline April 2
Sedro-Woolley, Burlington and Mount Vernon Areas
This year the Relay for Life of the PNW (Formerly Relay for Life of Skagit County, that has now combined with Whatcom and Anacortes) came up with a fun fundraiser that will keep a safe six-foot distance while giving kids something to smile about this Easter. Just contact them before April 2 and decide how many eggs you would like to be delivered to your yard! Or maybe you want to send a surprise to a friend or family member! But unlike a normally “egging” this time the recipient will be thrilled to see 40 or 80 eggs all over their lawn because they are filled with candy! Eggings will take place the night before Easter, so the surprise will be waiting for them Easter morning. To order, visit their website or call 360.391.6001. $20 for 40 eggs or $40 for 80 eggs.
