Event Information

Join us on Saturday, April 3, 2021, for a drive-through Eggscavation! The event will be held on Atlantis Way, outside of Atlantis Play Center. Each registered child will receive a goodie bag upon arrival with toys, candy, and a take-home craft. Throughout the drive, they will also receive eggs filled with candy and toys. At the end of the route, they'll have the chance to take a photo with the Easter bunny (from the safety of the vehicle)!

Due to the nature of this event and the contents of each goodie bag, we recommend this event for children, ages 3-10 years old. Adults and younger/older siblings may attend if riding in the same vehicle as registered ticket holders. Only registered ticket holders will receive giveaways.

Tickets will be available for the following time slots:
10:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
10:45 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.
11:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
12:15 p.m. to 12:45 p.m.
1:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Time slots will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis, until the maximum number of openings per time slot are filled. Purchase your tickets early if you are interested in a particular time slot as they may fill up.

Pricing

Children, ages 3-10 years old: $8

Local students, Kindergarten through 8th grade, are invited to participate in our virtual Eggscavation Craft Contest! Using paint and pasta noodles, students will create their own Easter egg. A downloadable egg template and step-by-step instructions are provided below.

All submitted artwork will be posted on the Garden Grove Parks and Recreation Facebook page and the community will be invited to judge the craft contest by “liking” their favorite art in each grade category: K-2nd; 3rd-5th; and 6th-8th. Judging will end Friday, April 2 and winners will be posted on social media. Winners in each grade category will receive a Target giftcard & chocolate bunny!

Please read through all contest guidelines before submitting your creation.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Supplies Needed:

  • Egg template (draw your own or download a free file below!)
  • dry pasta noodles (get creative with the shapes!)
  • paint & paint brushes
  • craft glue

Note: We recommend printing your egg on cardstock, or use the template to trace the egg shape onto a piece of cardboard. Painting and gluing will be much easier on these surfaces, but regular paper will work too. Just use what you have!

Step 1: Draw your own egg outline on a piece of paper, or click the image to the right to download one from us!

Step 2: Using your paint and brushes, paint whatever design you would like on to the egg. You can make stripes, zigzags, circles, whatever you want! Let dry before moving on to the next step.

Step 3: Once dry, begin gluing the dry pasta on to the egg in whatever design you would like. Experiment with different pasta shapes, get creative!

Step 4: Using your paint brush, begin painting the pasta noodles, using as many colors you want!

Step 5: Once dry, take a picture of your creation and submit using the form below. If you'd like, you can use scissors to cut our your egg.
