Every year, many ATF agents (who oversee violations of federal laws related to firearms, explosives, arson, and alcohol and tobacco diversion) work with communities across the country to make beeping Easter eggs.  Beeping eggs make it possible for blind or visually impaired children to enjoy the fun of the Easter egg hunts. 

Some communities hold Easter egg hunts where sighted and visually impaired children enjoy the fun together-sighted children wear blindfolds.  Other communities hold separate Easter Egg Hunts for children with special needs.  Whatever the preference, the important thing is that all the kids can be part of the fun. 

In this video, from CBS New York, several ATF agents make beeping Easter eggs.  Check it out if you want instructions on how to make them. 

If you want more detailed instructions to make the beeping Easter eggs, and to hold a beeping Easter egg event, check this article from the Family Connect Blog at the American Foundation for the Blind

Also, remember to check the activities in your community, chances are that somebody may be holding a beeping Easter egg hunt.  Close to us, in Tampa, Lighthouse of Pinellas will be holding a beeping Easter egg hunt on Saturday, March 10th, between 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Walsingham Park. 

To all ATF agents across the country, thanks for taking the time to help visually impaired children have fun this Easter!
