Last weekend I shot some photos of two events for kids: the Ice House Cultural Center‘s Día de los Niños free art workshop and Lifepoint Church‘s Easter Egg-Stravaganza at Kidd Springs Park. The slideshows can be found here and here.

I always forget how cool the Ice House is. Volunteer artist Eli Sanchez hosted a plaster cast-making class for kids, and a free reception for the new exhibit, featuring art by students from seven neighborhood elementary schools, is this Saturday, April 18 from 2-5 p.m.

Watching the egg hunt was a crazy experience. Never mind the Easter Bunny’s delayed appearance via helicopter. It seems that Easter egg hunts have changed dramatically since the last time I participated. Half of Kidd Springs Park was liberally sprinkled with plastic candy-filled eggs. Kids lined up in horizontal lines and mowed down the field, and one little girl got plowed by a bunch of kids as they ran to get in line. Aside from all that, plenty of happy families, babies and kids seemed to have a blast.
