Social Distancing Egg Hunt

Due to the COVID-19 situation, Waukee’s traditional Easter Egg Hunt scheduled for April 11 is canceled. But, don’t worry – the Waukee Parks & Recreation Department is joining with many other departments throughout Iowa to organize a “Social Distancing Egg Hunt”!

The Social Distancing Egg Hunt aims to get community members outside for fresh air and fun – all while keeping a healthy distance from each other.

So, here’s how it works:

  1. Create a big Easter Egg. Find poster board or paper, and color, paint, draw or collage your egg. You could even create something digitally. Be creative!
  2. Hang the egg on a front-facing window or door so egg hunters can see it.
  3. Get out and “hunt” for all the other eggs in the community.
  4. Post pictures and tag the following social media accounts for a chance to win prizes.

Waukee residents and businesses - please play along to give kids and families something fun to do during this time of isolation! Please keep eggs up through April 12. 

Don’t forget City of Waukee buildings while you’re on your hunts! City Hall, Development Services, HR/IT, the Community Center, Public Works, Fox Creek Park, Ridge Pointe Pavilion and Sugar Creek Municipal Golf Course are all participating.
