Magic House Annual Egg Roll
Magic House, St. Louis Children’s Museum
516 S. Kirkwood Road
St. Louis, MO 63122
(314) 822-8900

Date: April 21, 2014 from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

St. Louis’s favorite Children’s Museum is a prime location for an Easter adventure. Since there is a replica Oval Office inside of the Magic House, it seems only fitting to use the front lawn for an Easter event, just like the White House. The Egg Roll race is a highlight, but kids will also enjoy story times, egg decorating, a scavenger hunt and art projects. The Easter Bunny will be in attendance, and parents can bring their own cameras to capture the moment. All events are free with regular Magic House admission, and no reservations are necessary.

St. Louis, MO 63122
(314) 822-5855

Date: April 18, 2014 from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Kids age 10 to 14 might be feeling a little left out of the Easter festivities they enjoyed when they were younger. Kirkwood has remembered them, with a very special tween-style event at the Lion’s Pavilion in Kirwood Park. This super-cool event begins with pizza and drinks, then moves outside for an Egg Hunt in the dark, with flashlights. The cost is $5 for Kirkwood residents and $7 for non-residents. Be sure to pre-register, and bring your own basket and flashlight.
