Easter Egg Hunts and Bunny Trains for Kids in Connecticut

Hippity hoppity hooray—Easter is on its way! If you're like us and you can't wait any longer for springtime, Cadbury Eggs and cute bonnets, we've got you covered. With everything from glow-in-the-dark egg hunts to egg decorating workshops to Easter train rides, we have rounded up a list of bunny sightings and egg-stravaganzas across the state. Most of these events are geared towards preschoolers and younger elementary age children, so keep that in mind if you have older kids. Also note that some events require pre-registration and are dependent on decent weather, so be sure to check updates before heading out. Have a hopping good time...and check out our post about Easter breakfasts and brunches for even more bunny-themed fun.

‪A Daytrip to the Regina Laudis Abbey‬ Creche in Bethlehem, CT

The holidays are meant to be a time of reflection; however, the majority of my time is spent reflecting on everything I must prepare for that magical morning! So, I thought it would be a nice break to do something different and check out this creche with the boys. The children and I spent a couple of hours over in Bethlehem to see the creche on display at the Regina Laudis Abbey. We arrived at the Abbey and parked by the shop at the top of the drive. We found home-made cheeses and local honey while admiring the pottery, art, and especially the carved stone basins. My boys have never seen a gift shop that they don't like and this one was no exception. We then took a nice walk back down the drive and along a path that led through the grounds until we reached a restored 19th century barn. (On Dec. 1 and 2 make sure to visit the town of Bethlehem also for their annual Christmas Town Festival).
