2nd Annual Family Egg Hunt :: Event Recap

We were so thrilled to have the opportunity to gather more than 500 kids and grown-ups from the Milwaukee area on April 1st to celebrate spring with our 2nd Annual Family Egg Hunt! In partnership with the Midwest Orthopedic Sports Complex, we welcomed families to the indoor soccer complex for a morning of fun and activities we won’t soon forget!

The Venue :: Midwest Orthopedic Sports Complex

This place is AMAZING. This facility has three full-sized indoor soccer fields that park that hosts everything from birthday parties to soccer league play as well as LaCrosse and programs specifically for families with toddlers. We know we weren’t the only ones fantasizing about what it might be like to NOT have to sit out in the wind and rain for fall soccer this year! Thank you to Midwest Orthopedic Sports Complex for being the perfect host for this event!

The Food :: Jason’s Deli, Jen’s Sweet Treats, Angelic Bakehouse, CrossPoint Church, Dan-O’s Donuts and Sassy Cow Creamery

Families enjoyed goodies from these fabulous sponsors.  Jason’s Deli brought chocolate chip cookies and kettle chips that would be perfect for any party! Did you know they offer free ice cream when you dine in? They are located in Brookfield Square and the menu is focused on providing family-friendly, non-GMO ingredients you can be confident in serving. Angelic Bakehouse, was on hand making delicious samples with their sprouted-grain products that we adore. You’ll find Angelic products all over the Milwaukee area, including Costco, Sendik’s and Woodmans! And those cupcakes from Jen’s Sweet Treats?! So pretty and incredibly delicious. Located in Cudahy, these are a must for your next event or party! 

And if all that weren’t enough, our man Dan of Dan-O’s Donuts was set up outside frying up fresh bags of donuts with custom toppings, Cross Point Church offered a coffee and hot chocolate station, and Sassy Cow Creamery had us covered when it comes to the dairy treats we love around these parts. There was truly something for everyone! 

The Activities

While one soccer field was covered with a couple thousand plastic eggs, balloons, prizes and snacks, the other soccer field was filled with activities that kept families busy the whole morning. Definitely not your average Egg Hunt!

Highlights

Thank you to Willie Fun Events for providing the bounce houses that were a HUGE hit! These are available to rent as well as other fun options, like the big projection screen you can set up in the backyard to host a neighborhood movie night under the stars! 

Kids got to enjoy the face painting artistry of Life’s a Party Face Painting and we continue to be amazed at the talent and detail Leea puts into each and every face. So much fun! Birthday parties and special events galore, Life’s a Party Face Painting should who you go to for delighting your young guests! 

And of course, the Easter Bunny himself! Thanks to Lulu B Photography, Monkey Joe’s and Wisconsin Balloon Decor, the photo station with Mr. Bunny was a huge hit! 

Event Sponsors

The overwhelming consensus we have heard in feedback from the Family Egg Hunt is that families loved getting to enjoy all the neat activities and event sponsors we had available. So many great local businesses to learn about and connect with, plus kid-friendly interactive activities for everyone to enjoy! 

A special thank you to Bright Horizons, who gathered the donations from our generous attendees for the Ronald McDonald House!

Egg Hunt Fun! 

Our course, the highlight of the event was the ginormous Egg Hunt where kids got to gather prizes, snacks, treats, toys and so much more. We are thankful to our generous Egg Hunt Sponsors who made this hunt so much fun for all the kids! In particular, we gotta throw a shout-out to Heiser Automotive Group who provided the sweet totes perfect for egg hunting, plus a sweet car detailing giveaway.

The Team

And of course, these events don’t just happen without the hard work for the MKE Moms Blog team. Without their support and willingness to serve, none of this would have been possible. They work so hard to make each event a success and to continue to learn and grow so we only get better with time and practice. This group of women is so passionate about creating welcoming environments for moms and we love them so much! 

Be sure to pencil in Saturday, March 24th, 2018 on your calendars for the 3rd Annual Family Egg Hunt which will be held once again at the Midwest Orthopedic Sports Complex, but this time on ALL. THREE. FIELDS.
