Celebrating Easter in Venice

If your family is anything like ours, Easter is usually a big celebration with family and friends. A nice honey baked ham, mashed potatoes, candied yams, asparagus with hollandaise sauce… and of course, deviled eggs after the kids have finished with coloring them. We love watching the little ones hunt for the plastic eggs in the yard and sharing their treats with each other. This year is a lot different with everyone practicing social distancing, but we can still get awesome family meals from our local favorites!

Activities for Kids in Venice for Easter

Egg Your Yard in Venice

Imagine having your child wake up on Easter morning to a yard filled with treat-stuffed eggs and you didn’t even lift a finger? This year, we will be offering our services to come and Egg Your Yard in Venice for a small fee! We’ll also be offering upgrades such as a personalized letter from the Easter Bunny, a prefilled Easter Basket with a stuffed animal, candy and goodies, or bunny foot prints on your front porch/doorway!

  • Choose how many eggs you want stuffed and delivered to your home and if you want them delivered Saturday between 5-9 pm or 9:30 pm-12 am.
  • We will include one special “Golden” egg with an added surprise.
  • Choose any add-ons and any notes on special requests (we can’t promise to fulfill them, but we’ll do our best!)
  • We will be in touch with you Friday night with an approximate time for your delivery.

What is in the Eggs?


Each egg (plastic, in pastels and primary colors) will be stuffed with one of the following:
Snickers, Twix, 3 Musketeers, Milky Way, Starburts, M&Ms, Laffy Taffy, Jolly Ranchers, Nerds, Smarties, and Sweet Tarts,
all sealed in individual packaging, as well as some fun little trinkets and toys (erasers, bouncy balls, etc.)

Unfortunately, we’re unable to accommodate the needs of children with peanut and gluten allergies.

What if it Rains on Saturday night?

In the case of terrible weather, we’ll leave the eggs on your doorstep in a basket with a note that reads:

Happy Easter! Love, The Easter Bunny

We’ll wrap it in cellophane to keep any moisture off of the eggs.
