The most conscientious Easter egg hunters vow to use every part of their spherical prey, salvaging pulchritudinous pastel shells to mount as trophies on the living room wall. Bag a blue ribbon shell with today's Groupon: for $12, you get two children's and two adult tickets to an Easter egg hunt and wagon ride (a $26 value) at The Great Pumpkin Patch in Hayden, running through Saturday, April 23 and open 7 days a week.
Excelling in hands-on seasonal entertainment, The Great Pumpkin Patch introduces youngsters and their accompanying adults to a fun, multihued environment packed with spring activities. Hop on a covered wagon with familial constituents and meander toward a nearby field laden with colorful Easter eggs and tax-preparing cottontails. Kids receive 10 surprise eggs before being whisked off to the inflatable park, ideal for bouncing on buoyant apparatuses while contemplating the space-time continuum. Take to the petting zoo for a meet-and-greet with the establishment's four-legged residents, or board a train for ultimate atmosphere perusal. After exploring the grin-inducing grounds, guests can visit the country store to purchase treats.
