Updated for 2018
For the past few years EarlyWorks Children’s Museum has been offering their annual Bunny Brunch. This most recent year we had the wonderful opportunity to go (even though they had been sold out of tickets for months!) My kids really enjoyed the event and it was pretty fantastic that I didn’t have to hide all of the eggs myself!
There are 2 different brunch options, one at 9:00 and then another at 11:00 – we opted for the 11:00 spot. The egg hunt is scheduled for 10:30 so that both brunch groups can participate at the same time.
Our EarlyWorks Bunny Brunch Experience
When we got there we found that they had 2 different sections of Constitution Village set up for the egg hunt. One side was roped off for children 6 and older and the other side was for 5 and under. I had some littles with me so my oldest ended up on the other side on his own. They had staff stationed at all of the exits as well as volunteers spaced throughout the “egg area” to keep an eye on everything. On the 5 and under side they let the 2-3 year olds in first for a few minutes and then let the rest of the kids in. They had hidden over 4000 eggs with a few golden eggs with extra special prizes in them!
I completely forgot to bring Easter baskets but true to form, Early Works had it covered and had ones for us to borrow!
Everywhere you looked there were decorations and children dressed in their new Easter clothes with parents (and in many cases Grandparents) taking photos and just enjoying the lovely day. There were lots of photo-op spots to take advantage of!
After the egg hunt we walked over to the Early Works building for the brunch. It was a gorgeous day out!
We stood in line for a short time and then were seated. Brunch included a child friendly food that all of my kids really enjoyed as well as an “adult” option that was quite tasty.
Of course, a Bunny Brunch isn’t complete without the guest of honor! Make sure to get photos taken with the Easter bunny before you leave!
All in all my kids had a fantastic time!
Some Bunny Brunch Parent Pro-Tips
Buy tickets early. This event completely sold out more than 2 months beforehand. Don’t wait or you will miss out!!!
Keep in mind that this event will sell out. There were a ton of little ones just about everywhere you looked. Early works made sure to have lots of volunteers and staff on hand to manage all of the kids but there were a few times I lost sight of my kids during the egg hunt.
Bring a basket. Early Works had quite a few extras for the kids to borrow if you forget yours like I did.
Bring a jacket. Depending on the weather it can be really chilly this time of year. Even at 10:30 when we arrived we were glad to have our jackets.
Bring a camera. There were a ton of photo spots set up to take cute photos of kids. They do provide a professional photographer for bunny pics but if you want photos of the rest of the day you need to bring your own.
Don’t forget the Grandparents! I was pleasantly surprised how many Grandparents I saw and I would invite my kids Grandparents in a heartbeat next time!
Oh, and remember parking is free on the weekends.
