Here are 5 steps for planning a Beeping Easter Egg Hunt for Those Who Are Blind and Visually Impaired:

FARMINGDALE, NY, February 16, 2015 - When any holiday approaches and you begin planning your activities, it is important to think about accessibility for both the day itself as well as the special events surrounding it. Whether party planners are trying to be more inclusive with holiday food traditions or attempting to plan an accessible Easter Egg Hunt for blind and visually impaired children, the common goal here is to make it so that everyone can celebrate such occasions and feel like they can join in on the fun.

If you are planning an Easter Egg Hunt in your community or school this your, there are steps you can take to ensure that kids who are blind or visually impaired can be included. The same holds true for seniors in nursing homes or assisted living facilities, hospitals or any other locations where people have special needs such as vision impairment.

1. Stock up on Beeping Easter Eggs.
These specially designed Beeping Easter Eggs give blind and visually impaired kids accessibility to Easter Egg Hunts that are going on around them. Instead of going by visual cues, kids can locate these eggs by following the loud, clear beep they emit. Beeping Easter Eggs can also be used on Easter morning to provide an audible alert as kids with low vision experience the excitement of locating their Easter baskets. In addition, they're great for use at disability awareness functions as well as senior homes and assisted living facilities to bring the joy of Easter to all ages. To use, just place an egg around the area of the hunt and flip the ON/OFF slide switch to turn on the beeper. The beeper assembly and batteries are housed in the bottom half of each egg, leaving the top half hollow.


2. Pick and time and date that works best for your event.
Resolution Solution: Add a little more walking and exercise to your daily living routine.
When planning any event, you want to check your calendar and make sure the time and date make sense. If you are a teacher planning an Easter Egg Hunt for special needs students, chances are you will be doing this as a special activity during school hours the week before Easter Sunday. If you are planning a community event, then you are looking at Easter Weekend and you want to make sure the time and location you pick do not conflict with other events surrounding Easter Sunday.

3. Plan your Beeping Easter Egg Hunt keeping age groups in mind.
It is important to plan an age-appropriate Beeping Easter Egg Hunt to make sure everyone can have the best time. For example, when planning for younger children, make sure hiding spots are not out of their reach. When planning for seniors, you can award them special prizes that aren't chocolate or candy especially if they are on a diet due to certain medical conditions.Use the resources around you and when in doubt, consult with colleagues and family members when planning.

4. Map out your location, list hiding places and set clear boundaries.
Once you have the Beeping Easter Eggs, time and date and a game plan for the big event, you want to scout your chosen location to map things out. When hiding Beeping Easter Eggs, make sure to list the hiding places so that you can make sure all of them are retrieved at the end of the event. Also, it is important to let everyone involved know what the boundaries are for the Easter Egg hunt to ensure safety.

5. Make sure there is proper supervision at all times.
This is a vital piece to all Easter Egg Hunts, especially where special needs groups are concerned. Having proper supervision measures in place before, during, and after the Beeping Easter Egg Hunt will only add to the overall enjoyment of the day because the planners, participants, and spectators will know ahead of time that instead of being a free for all event, it is a FUN for all event... and that's the way it should be!
