The Easter Bunny is making an early stop in LaGrange this year. Tamara Thompson of Hooked by a Lefty and Pretty Good Books have teamed up to present their first annual Photo Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt.

Starting March 8, Thompson said she will be putting out a list via social media of 10 things participants of the hunt will have to take a selfie of themselves doing around town. At the last stop on the hunt, Thompson said participants will take a selfie of themselves outside of Pretty Good Books before collecting their prize inside.

“For the prize, I will be crocheting a bunch of little Peeps and putting them in a bag with candy and other treats,” Thompson said. “It’s something I’ve made by hand to give back to the community — something fun for kids and families to do leading up to Easter.”

  • The rules for the photo scavenger hunt are as goes:
  • The child must be five-year-old or older
  • The child must take a selfie with all objects on the list
  • There will only be five winners per week.
  • There will only be one winner per household.
  • The winner must be following the pages of Pretty Good Books and Hooked by a Lefty.

Thompson said the reason the event is for children five and older is that parts of the prize can be a choking hazard for children under five years old.

“I’m looking forward to seeing families come together to do something fun. Nowadays I know it’s hard for families to find things to do with their kids. So this would be something great for them to do,” Thompson said.

Thompson said the event is free to participate in and will take place every Wednesday up until April 5, the Wednesday before Easter.

“Participants will have to follow me and Pretty Good Books on Facebook and Instagram, follow the rules, tag me in the photos, and they’ll receive their prize,” Thompson said.

Thompson said if all goes well the first time around, she hopes to make it into an annual event.

“I want this to be something that I can do for years to come — something that kids can look forward to and have fun,” Thompson said. “This is in my heart and God willing as long as I’m able and my fingers work, I want to keep doing this for the community.”
