DIY Volunteering: Easter Egg Hunt


Each month HandsOn has a DIY project you can do any time, any place (or you can even plan on doing it one day, but then really do it a couple days later).  Find out more about HandsOn Greater Richmond’s DIY Volunteering initiative here.

We’ve partnered up with HandsOn and will post the DIY for the month here on Richmondmom, but you want to get out and about you can find more volunteering opportunities for you or the whole family on their website.

 Make Easter Eggs for Southside Child Development Center & Peter Paul Development Center

Southside Child Development Center and Peter Paul Development Center are both community resources dedicated to supporting children and families by giving them a safe, consistent, structured, and loving environment in which communities can thrive through services like childcare, after school programming, summer programs and initiatives that support the whole family. Both of these organizations coordinate an annual Easter egg hunt and need assistance getting eggs ready for the children to find. DIY volunteers will assemble plastic Easter eggs and providing Easter baskets that will be used in the events at each of these centers, bringing some fun and joy to the children and their families.


30-40 plastic Easter eggs

Candy or toys to fill each (instructions and restrictions will be in full instructions)

2 baskets that can be used to collect eggs

*Volunteers are responsible for purchasing any of the materials needed for DIY opportunities.

How To:
1. Express Interest in the project to HandsOn. We’ll send you instructions and plan for your delivery.
2. Every person who plans to volunteer (including youth) must express interest. You can create a volunteer team to sign up your group or family members. Read about how to create and manage teams. 
3. Plan the time and place to DIY.
4. Once you’ve expressed interest, complete instructions will be sent to you. We ask that you donate a minimum of 30-40 Easter eggs and 2 baskets. There is no maximum. Expect the total project to be done in about 2 hours depending on the number of eggs made and the number of people you have volunteering with you.

Confirmed participants will receive 2 hours for submitting materials prior to 4pm, Tuesday, March 31, 2015.
