Easter Egg Hunt at the Windsor Historical Society

Society offers an egg hunt, egg decorating and spring crafts during Easter weekend.




The Windsor Historical Society invites families to an Easter egg hunt and spring craft day on Saturday, April 15 from 10:00 to 4:00.  Children will hunt for colorful eggs on the Society’s lawn and uncover the candy treats hidden inside!  Children and adults will also enjoy making spring-themed crafts in the Society’s Hands-On-History Learning Center.  Space is limited, so call the Society for reservations at (860) 688-3813.


Preschoolers through 5th graders are eligible for the egg hunt, which will be held on the Society’s lawn starting promptly at 10:30 and running until 11:30.   The Society will provide each child with a bag to gather eggs hidden specifically for his or her skill level. Each egg holds a small, packaged candy treat. Candies include M&M’s, chocolate eggs, jellybeans and fun-sized candy bars. The Society’s staff will be present to supervise the hunt, but parental supervision is required.


The Society also invites its guests to make spring crafts in the Society’s Learning Center from 10:00 until 4:00.  Everyone will think spring while they paint wooden eggs, build floral picture frames, construct chicks out of pom poms and “grow” flower magnets.  Please dress appropriately for painting and other messy crafts!


The egg hunt is run in conjunction with the Windsor Historical Society’s Celebrate: Holidays in Windsor 1880-1910 exhibition currently on view in the Society’s North Gallery.  The exhibition, which explores 19th century holidays in Windsor, will be open throughout the day.  Admission to the program also includes access to the Society’s South Gallery, where Windsor’s past comes to life through objects, photographs and other artifacts.

Reservations for the egg hunt are required by April 12 and can be made by calling the Windsor Historical Society at (860) 688-3813.  Admission is $6 for adults, $5 for children and seniors, and $4 for Society members.  The egg hunt will be held at the Society, 96 Palisado Avenue in Windsor.  There is no rain date for the egg hunt. In case of cancellation, the Society will notify participants by phone. For more information contact the Society at (860) 688-3813 or email at info@windsorhistoricalsociety.org .
