Easter Family Night is always one of our most popular events of the year and this year was no exception! Over a thousand patrons joined us a couple weeks ago at the Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum for a night of fun Easter-themed activities. Families, friends, kids, and college students alike had fun participating in our live animal shows, crafts, Easter egg scavenger hunt, and photo booth.
In the downstairs auditorium, guests could attend one of our three live animal shows of the night. We had two shows about animal adaptations and one show about vertebrates. At each show, guests got to meet three live animals!
In the craft room, visitors colored spring-themed coloring pages and made clothespin and paper eggs. Using a clothespin, you can open and close the egg to reveal an adorable baby chick.
Thank you to The Thrifty Home for this cute Easter craft!
About 50 colorful Easter eggs were hidden around the museum for our scavenger hunt. Everyone loved finding eggs in our exhibits and searching for camouflaged green eggs hidden in plants. Anyone who found 10 eggs won a customized Pokemon-inspired animal card. And anyone who found 10 green eggs won the chance to spin our grand-prize wheel for a shot at a Bean Museum custom pen, chapstick, water bottle, reusable bag, or reusable straw!
To top off the night, patrons took a photo at our photo booth. They will receive a copy of their picture with a customized Easter frame so that they can remember this fun night! Here are some pictures we took before the patrons arrived.
Thanks to everyone who attended this event. We love to see our guests at our Easter and Halloween Family nights year after year. To see upcoming events like this one, visit our website.
