I'd join in the punning, but I'm deadly shy, so maybe some day I'll come out of my shell more and join in.

The Easter egg hunt I went to this year ended up being a bunch of parents dragging their kids behind them and placing as many eggs as possible in their kids basket. This was of course to prevent other parents from doing the same thing. The kids actually had little involvement.

I found a few eggs and stood guard over them so my kid could pick up a few on his own. Caught one parent reaching under my legs to try and grab one of the 3 eggs I was guarding. He was actually trying to take an egg my kid was leaning over for. I didn't let that happen.

They need to manage these things a little better and not let parents be more than spectators. I don't think i'll be going again next year. Maybe i'll invite a few of the neighbor kids over and have a proper egg hunt in my yard.

This thread should have been ova in one.

Instead, it went from the eggs to the nuts.

You're not kidding.  The missus and I took the cutlet out for his first hunt this year at 16 months.  I found a few eggs in plain sight that the other kids missed so I start calling for him to come over and grab them, when from out of nowhere I see this batch of 4 or so 5-year-olds come running toward us.  Before they could grab those eggs (there were 4) I picked them up myself and shot them a look that said, "Look you little twerps, you missed these, now my toddler is going to get them.  Buzz off."  Wow, did I ever get the glares from those kids.

I found out a little later that two dads got into a fight and moms were in a shouting match.  And this was at a church.  I don't know that we'll go next year.  We'll hide eggs at home or the grandparents' or something.

Well, I was only guarding from the adults. It's meant for children so if one came by I don't think I would have stopped them.

The egg hunt I was at had age restricted hunts at different times. Although with parents involved i'm not sure what the point of that was.

The one and only time I went on a public one, I found a whole 6 eggs while the other kids had gobs of them, mostly because they had parents and older siblings scouting for them.  And my folks still made me share with other kids by giving some to kids who had 30+ eggs. I refused to go the next year, and after that we did the hunts at home.

So no, it's not a new thing.

A friend of mine works as a volunteer at a local history museum that had an Easter egg hunt this year and told me this story. One parent with a toddler complained that there were no eggs left, that the older kids had gotten them all. So some new eggs were set out, behind one of the buildings, for the mom and her child.  Before the mother got back there another mother with her 12 year old came around the building and spotted the eggs. The young female volunteer who was guarding the eggs told the mother that these were being held for the toddlers. The mother said "F--- you" and proceeded to take all the eggs despite the fact that her and her kid had already had about 30 eggs in their bag.
