The Grace Church egg hunt did not have enough eggs for the kids and what was in the eggs were choking hazards.

One of my kidsgathered 2 eggs, while the other gathered 4. some of the kids walked out with over a dozen eggs. Parents were arguing about it..

Nice idea, but There is room to improve this event.
