Dinos, piñatas, and more make Easter at the Museum an unexpected event

SHERMAN, Tex. (KXII) - The Sherman Museum hosted its Easter at the Museum event Saturday, with a vision that was outside the box.

"It was so exciting to get here," said local Arthur Horn.

Great grandfather Horn was one of four generations who joined in the Easter fun. His three-year-old granddaughter was one of dozens of kids loving the unexpected activities.

"Normally we do an egg hunt, but I wanted to do something a little more active," said organizer Taylor Spurgin. "So what I did was split it up by younger kids and older kids."

Spurgin said she wanted to think up some activities that were outside the box, like Easter pinatas, crafts, and egg on the spoon race and a scavenger hunt.

"The most fun was coming down and participating in the activities," Horn said, "Like making all the little bunny rabbit deals and playing."

Spurgin also hinted at what's in store at the museum this summer by giving kids a chance to win tickets.

"They've been able to win Dino Days tickets," Spurgin said. "We have Dino Days this summer, the biggest one yet, with a full skeleton of a T-Rex and Triceratops. It'll be super awesome."

Events and organizers agreed seeing the kids smile made it all worth it.

"Seeing how excited the kids get, that's the best part for me honestly," Spurgin said.
