Easter egg art hunts help keep tradition going during social distancing

A popular family Easter tradition gets a creative substitute during this time of social distancing due to the coronavirus.

Have you seen Easter egg art popping up on windows and sidewalks near your home? Well, it’s how some neighbors are keeping a popular Easter tradition alive.

Families can enjoy the artwork during walks or bike rides and take pictures for sharing on social media this week.
