CUMMING -- As children hunt eggs throughout Forsyth County over Easter weekend, some preschoolers at Cumming First United Methodist Church already have a head start.

The preschool at the church on Canton Highway held an Easter egg hunt for students on Wednesday and Thursday.

“I think it’s awesome. It kind of gives a chance for the kids and the parents to get involved at the same time,” said parent Zak Campbell. “It’s fun for the kids.”

Campbell was one of several parents volunteering to get the hunt ready. His job was to spread eggs before classes came out.

“I’ve been designated to hide the eggs, so I guess I’m the Easter Bunny,” he said.

The preschool has been doing activities all week to learn about Easter, which Campbell said was a benefit.

“It’s nice to get that message and get that knowledge at an early age,” he said.

The egg hunts were held on two days to accommodate the school’s 350 students, and students found eggs with their names on them.

Campbell said his son, Harry, was one of the students from the 3-year-old-class and seemed to be much more excited about hunting eggs this Easter than last.

“My son, watching him last year not really get into it and not understand it to this year now, in his 3-year-old class, he’s tons more excited about it. It’s all he talks about… He’s all about the eggs,” Campbell said.

“It’s fun times for the kids and that’s what it’s all about. Make sure they have a good time and get the parents involved; it’s good for everybody.”
