I attended your Saturday Easter Egg Event with my Granddaughter and I would like to give you my insight on the event if you don't mind.................I have handled many children events such as your's for Museums for 20 years. But before I start Please allow me to Thank You for what your doing for our Children "Today" They need it.!!!!
Stamping/Baskets.* * * * *
Fast and Friendly welcoming reception.
Face Paint * * *
A Kids favorite, a very busy table, and the staff handled each child on an individual bases which was nice.
unfortunately children without a stamp were cutting the line and being taken first, as for the rest of us, we just had to be patient.
Suggestion; Extra Table & Staff/Volunteer and check admission Stamp before Face painting
Art & Crafts tables *
I couldn't stand long enough at this table , the table was to small and unfortunately there was to many kids making enough crafts for their entire family, making it impossible for other children to make just one (1) craft.
Suggestion; Extra Table and at least one (1) Staff/Volunteer to control the amount of crafts being made by one child.
Egg Tables *
Egg coloring table; Children were clearly enjoying the opportunity to color their eggs, but unfortunately Parent were forcing their children to color 1 to 2 dozens of eggs , spoiling their kids excitement of the event and holding up the table for others whom only wanted to color 2 or 3 eggs. And at the time of my coloring there was no supervision.
Suggestion; At least one (1) Staff/Volunteer per table to control the amount of eggs being colored by one child.
Hoola Hooping * * * * *
Very Friendly Staff/Volunteers, My Granddaughter just couldn't get enough of them. They were Great with the kids.
Petting Zoo * * *
A very nice attraction for all ages, and the Staff/Volunteer was great with the kids and Animals but she clearly need help. there was to much pushing and shoving going on.
Suggestion; a couple extra feet between cages and one (1) extra Staff/Volunteer and the bucket of Animal Food should be handled by a Staff member or Volunteer "NOT as a seat for the visitors................
The most important and Special event of the day, spoiled because greedy parents just couldn't help themselves, I saw parents knock over other children just to get their child more eggs, while other children walked away from the battle with bruises and empty baskets. again 3 young males without a stamp hoarding most of the eggs in their shirts, I know there was no stamp because i asked to shake their hands. I did however get two eggs for my granddaughter but i gave them to a young child crying because she didn't get any.
Suggestion; NO Parents allowed in the PIT!!!!!, all children allowed to only pick up 2 or 3 Eggs, this event should be held last and as many volunteers/Staff to be present in the pit................
Although on a chain one man with his Shepherd constantly allowed his dog to lunges/jump at children and Adults as he walked through the crowed, when I had enough I approached the female supervisor and she told me there was nothing she could do because the dog was on a leash, therefore putting the children and adults in harms way...... In addition there were three (3) other dogs urinating in and around the Potato Sack Races making it very unsanitary for any child to play in......While one women who had picked up her dogs doo said she couldn't find a trash pail so she throw it on the ground so she wouldn't have to carry it.....................
Last but not least
There was 3 or 4 other young female claming to be Staff/Volunteers but yet they were NO help to the visitors or other Staff Member.
Thank You for allowing my Voice to be heard.
