Lakewood Ranch's Jade Jacobs stood on the edge of a large field scoping out how many eggs were close to her.
Jacobs, who is 6, was planning her strategy to collect as many eggs as she could during Lakewood Ranch Community Activities' annual EGGstravaganza April 1 at Waterside Park.
She decided to collect the eggs that were closest to her before going farther into the field.
"I want as many as it takes to fill my bucket," Jacobs said.
Greenbrook's Emma Bewley, who is 5, decided she was going to hunt for eggs by color. She wanted to collect the blue, purple, pink and yellow eggs. Her goal was to collect 10 eggs.
Before the egg hunt began, Jacobs enjoyed the various activities available at EGGstravaganza, including getting her face painted.
She decided to have a chick painted on her face because her class at school is taking care of chicks.
