ANDERSON COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) — Families will celebrate Easter differently this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as traditional events like Easter egg hunts have been cancelled. One Anderson County couple came up with a way to still get kids outside for a hunt while keeping their distance.
”We wanted to also promote the idea that getting outdoors while practicing caution and social distancing is still okay and it’s healthy,” Tyler Feaster said.
Feaster and his wife Crissy are behind the Outdoors in the Bluegrass TV Show. They came up with a list of nature items like flowers, mushrooms, and animal tracks. They are then encouraging families to go out and find those items. There’s another, more wild item they want to know if kids can spot.
”Not take it too literally, have a little bit of fun with it and hopefully find a Bigfoot print along the way,” Feaster said. “Give the kids something nice to enjoy for Easter.”
You don’t have to find every item on the scavenger hunt list, but when you do find items, you can email pictures of them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Feaster will post photos on The Outdoors in the Bluegrass TV Show Facebook page and the post with the most likes will win a prize.
”My jersey from last year, I’m going to autograph and sign and give it away to the winner, Feaster noted. "Jimmy Houston, one the famous TV fishing legends out there, has signed a t-shirt for us that we’re going to give away. An Outdoors in the Bluegrass sticker and I think what most kids are actually excited for is an honorary Bigfoot researcher sticker,” said Feaster.
