What is one of your favorite things to do on Easter? Is your answer the same as mine? Is it an Easter egg hunt? We have all had a typical Easter egg hunt where you find eggs and get candy or money inside. But I have the ultimate Easter egg hunt: This would not just be about money and candy in your egg. Instead of money you would get a little piece of paper that would give you a good deed to do. Everyone would be doing a spectacular thing for the community.

This is a good thing to do because helping the community is a better thing to do than eating chocolate and Skittles and all sorts of candy all day long. Where would the Easter egg hunt be? Your Easter egg hunt should be in a wide open place where you could hide eggs and run off to find them. A good place would be a park or even your own backyard, as long as it’s big enough.

Now, you are probably thinking, “wait a minute, I really want candy and money for Easter.” This doesn’t mean the Easter bunny is going along with my plan and giving the whole world good deeds. But in my plan, you get candy from the Easter bunny and still get to help people in your community by doing a good deed. I hope some of you read this and decide to do your own DEEDster egg hunt.
