The Children’s Education Center of the Islands staff have been busy putting together spring activity bags for their students and families. In preparation for the annual Spring Festival, which now has been canceled, volunteers began stuffing plastic eggs with candy. All bags will include a set of 25 eggs for families to hide at home and participate in their own egg hunts. Teachers also created eco-friendly craft kits that would have normally been supplied at festival. The CECI acknowledged the financial and mental struggle island families are finding themselves in this season. It is hoping the bags will help add joy and a smile to their children during this time. In addition, the CECI has extra bags for community members and will be dropping them off at F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva for pick up. Staff extended a big thank you to Bailey’s General Store for donating the paper bags.
