The first egg hunt each time will be for the 1-3 year olds. Once they are finished and while they are turning in their eggs for the goodie bags, the 4-6 year olds start their egg hunt. The goal is that all children have fun and find eggs that they can turn in for goodie bags, regardless of how many they collect.
