PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Visually impaired children were able to participate in an Easter tradition Thursday that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to do thanks to the Rhode Island Bomb Squad.
Last week, bomb squad technicians assembled dozens of special Easter eggs. The eggs beep, making it easier for children who are visually impaired to find them.
More than 50 children participated in the Beeping Easter Egg Hunt at the State House, scouring the lawn for the chirping eggs.
Once a child found one of the beeping eggs, they could collect the smaller plastic egg placed next to it, which contained a small toy or candy.
