Kids hunt Easter eggs while social distancing

Easter Bunny visits a neighborhood in Joplin


Even during this Coronavirus pandemic kids got to see the Easter Bunny at a safe distance and also hunt for eggs Saturday morning.

The Cedar Ridge subdivision in Joplin hosts an annual Easter egg hunt, but with the need for social distancing due to COVID-19 put a twist on the beloved tradition.

For 10 dollars photographer Tera Miller scattered the plastic eggs to hunt. Miller also took photos with the Easter Bunny through glass windows or doors.

Miller says she is glad to help provide lasting memories through this trying time.

“Mr Easter Bunny is my 12-year-old son, so for both of us it’s been a really rewarding experience to just see their faces light up. Most of them have no idea that we’re coming.  Just the pure joy and happiness, it’s just so nice to see all the worry and things disappear you know when the open the door and he’s there,” adds Miller.

Tera Miller and the Easter Bunny visited 20 houses Saturday, but they are not done yet. They will be in Carl Junction on Sunday.
