FUSS Collaborative Easter Egg Hunt

This from our illustrious RE Easter committee!

This year we are conducting a COLLABORATIVE Egg Hunt based upon many of our seven principles! Please review these with your child prior to Sunday.

1. Each person is important. (Everyone is part of our community) 
2. Be kind in all you do.  (Find eggs for each other) 
3. We're free to learn together.  (Have fun)
4. We search for what is true.  (Equality matters) 
5. All people need a voice.  (and some eggs) 
6. Build a fair and peaceful world.  (Be fair, help each other and everyone will feel good) 
7. We care for Earth's lifeboat. (Make sure to pick up all those plastic eggs)

Here is how the Egg Hunt will work: After the Sunday worship service, children “Preschool” through “Coming of Age” (this would include Preschool, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and those kids in the “Coming of Age” group) should report to the Hall between the Kitchen and Dining Room.

Pre-K, K, 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders will line up on the Dining Room side of the Hall (please refer to signs). 4th, 5th, 6th, and older will line up on the Kitchen side of the Hall (please refer to signs). We will PAIR older and younger students in groups of TWO. Each person will be given a specific count of eggs that they may find and the TWO must work together to find both of their specified number TOGETHER. Find ONE egg for the youngest kid FIRST then you may alternate finding eggs for each other! BOTH kids must participate.

Once EVERYONE has their number of eggs please return to the back patio near the doors to:
1. Open eggs
2. Return the plastic eggs
3. AND receive a BONUS prize!

 If there are any concerns or special requests regarding your children’s needs, please contact our Egg Hunt Leaders, Roz Dahl or Lara Turney. Thanks for your cooperation!
