Easter Egg Hunt

For the past month and a half, over 200 giant Easter eggs have been hidden in various locations around London as part of the Big Egg Hunt.  While I didn't have the time or wherewithal to search for them all, I did come across quite a few of them by happenstance.  Each egg was decorated by a different artist.  Some were out in plain sight, while others were tucked away in alleyways, shop windows, and even inside department stores.  Each and every one was fun to find!

Our friends Jason & Elizabeth and their two kids are visiting us from Washington, DC this week, so they've enjoyed looking for eggs with us.  On Tuesday afternoon we went to Covent Garden and discovered that all 200+ eggs had been moved there so everyone can enjoy them all in one place before they are auctioned off.  What a treat!  The kids really enjoyed seeing all the different eggs.

What a fun Easter egg hunt! You can see all the eggs online here.  I hope they do another one next year...


  1. Those are huge eggs! What kind of birds are they from?

  2. I believe they are dinosaur eggs, from Isla Nublar.
