Toddler X's Egg Hunt Planner (2015)

Easter is three weeks away, and the egg hunts are on! Here are the ones we're aware of, though I'm certain this list is far from exhaustive. If you know of others, please share, and I'll add them to the planner. (And if you can find a link to the Los Gatos hunt, that would be great!) As soon as I have time, I'll also add information about upcoming spring farm events and any other springtime activities I discover.

*** Exciting update! I managed to track down the SV Toddler Facebook thread from last Easter, where readers gave a TON of useful feedback on the various area hunts...55 comments' worth of feedback, to be exact. As you plan your hunt schedule for this spring, take a look to see what people thought of the 2014 hunts. Happy hopping! ***
