Take photos of your own? Share them with us!
Hundreds of youngsters braved the dank, dreary weather Saturday morning to hunt for Easter eggs on the front lawn of the Moorestown Community House. Turnout for the 19th annual Easter Egg Hunt, sponsored by the Moorestown Business Association (MBA), was high as usual, according to MBA member and event photographer Tom Sheckels. Volunteers scattered the lawn of the Community House with about 5,000 Easter eggs, a select few stuffed with candy and prizes. The event, traditionally held on the Greenleaf property, had been moved because of ongoing construction for Moorestown Friends School's new building at the site of the former retirement home.

A cloudy day doesn't dampen the fun at Moorestown's 18th annual Easter Egg Hunt.
Moorestown children and their parents bundled up Saturday for an unseasonably cool townwide Easter egg hunt. The forecasted rain held off for Mooretown's 18th annual Easter Egg Hunt, allowing at least 100 children to dash around Moorestown Friends' Greenleaf Estate lawn for the pastel eggs. Several children found special eggs that granted them prizes. The kids split into three groups—3 years old and younger, 4- and 5-year-olds and 6- and 7-year-olds. The older the hunters, the more frenzied the hunt, as kids stuffed baskets and even shopping bags full of eggs. In addition to the hunt, the kids enjoyed a moon bounce, balloon animal artist and face painting. Moorestown Business Association hosted the hunt.

It is possible to create a healthy Easter basket.
With Easter fast approaching, I thought now would be a good time to think about a healthy Easter basket this year. We all know that the rate of childhood obesity is on the rise, so I think it is time we try something new. Not only does the Easter Bunny bring sweets in the form of chocolate bunnies and eggs and, of course, the always popular Marshmallow Peeps, but the kids also receive plenty of candy at school and from grandparents. As parents, we want to provide our kids with some healthy alternatives to all this candy. What can you do as a parent to switch out some of the sugary treats with healthier alternatives? Quite a bit! Here are some of my ideas to get you started, adapt and change things around to make it work for your family. …
