With Easter coming so early this year I sometimes forget that it’s less than 2 weeks away…but it is. That means I have so much to do before it gets here. Easter outfit…check! Easter gifts…Check! And that’s about it. One event that always makes me think of Easter is a good ol’ Easter Egg hunt. Even though we will be celebrating Easter in PA, I thought it would be kind of me to share about where you can take your children on Long Island to enjoy the festivities. I am amazed at how many you have to pay for, and that bums me out, but here’s the list I came up with!
