Celebrate Easter at Queens County Museum

Egg hunt, activities planned for children March 24

LIVERPOOL – Hop into the Queens County Museum in Liverpool March 24 to celebrate Easter. 

The museum is set to host its second annual Easter at the Museum event from 1-3 p.m. that day. 

Linda Rafuse says 50 children can sign up, and 36 are already registered. 

“We’ll have eggs hidden all over the Perkins House and Queens County Museum property,” said Rafuse. 

The museum is asking children to bring their Easter baskets. When children find six eggs, they can head into the museum to start the other activities. 

Inside, there will be various stations set up, said Rafuse. One station will be a sticker table, where children can decorate fake eggs. Another will involve making bunny ears, and kids will also be able to colour. At another station, participants will be able to get their faces painted. 

Another table will have a jar of jellybeans, and children can guess how many there are in the container. The one closest to the correct number will get a prize, said Rafuse. 

In another room, there will be a music station where kids can learn to do the bunny hop. 

“We’ll have a prize table set up because we’re going to draw for a prize every 15 minutes,” said Rafuse. 

She says last year’s event was such a success that the decision was made to offer it again. 

“It was a lot of fun,” she said. 

Last year’s 30 spaces filled quickly, which is why there have been 20 additional spots added in order to accommodate more children this year.
