SALEM — St. Paul School in Salem is hosting a virtual egg hunt. Inspired by the “bear hunts” enjoyed by many local children and adults at the beginning of the lockdown last spring, St. Paul School teachers and students came up with the idea of creating an Easter egg hunt using yard signs.

The school is selling yard signs made of corrugated plastic with special UV resistant badging created by Halls of Fame in Lisbon.

Local families and businesses can purchase an egg sign for $20. These numbered egg signs can be placed in a yard or in a window. The eggs on the signs can be decorated to uniquely for family or business, or the signs can be displayed as is.

There are even golden egg signs available to businesses for $50 each. Finding golden eggs means an entry into a drawing for a gift card.

Egg signs should be placed in yards/windows beginning on March 4 up through April 5. During this time, the community can drive, bike, or walk around to try to find as may egg signs as they can.

If a rare golden egg sign is spotted, people who take a photo with the egg and post to the St. Paul School Facebook page (@SaintPaulSchoolSalem) will be entered into a drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card. If anyone has trouble locating eggs, there is an interactive map available to help find registered egg signs. For more information, visit tinyurl.com/SPSEggHunt.
