Title: Hurry!! You can still have a Beeping Easter Egg Hunt
It's not too late to make some beeping Easter Eggs for this Sunday! The International Association of Bomb Technicians & Investigators (IABTI) provides easy to follow instructions to make these fancy eggs. Buy the parts you need and then follow just 6 steps to make them.
The IABTI also has a guide to hold a Beeping Easter Egg Event. Bomb squads around the country have been busy making beeping Eastern Eggs for this Easter. They may have provided Easter Eggs for an Egg Hunt near you. Although, many of the Beeping Eastern Egg Hunts have taken place in the past few weeks, there are still a few coming this Saturday, April 15th. We have identified some and maybe there is one close to you.
