Moms and dads on the hunt for bunny hops for the weekend can stop searching. Check out our top picks for Easter fun:
Free Easter Treats at Fuzziwig’s Candy Factory
Boys and girls looking for a fun Easter egg hunt can head over to the Westfield Culver City Mall now through the weekend and earn a sweet treat for their efforts. All they have to do is pick up a holiday-themed sheet at the Westfield Concierge and complete an egg hunt throughout the shopping center. When they’re done, they can claim their gratis treats at Fuzziwig’s Candy Factory.
Fuzziwig’s Candy Factory, 6000 Sepulveda Blvd. (Level 2); 310-397-3026
Shutterfly Gift Card with Easter Bunny Photo Package
While parents are at the mall, helping their little bunnies find eggs and treats, they can also set up a photo shoot with the Easter Bunny, who will be visiting from now through April 23. Granted, it’s always a gamble as to whether the fluffy guy will elicit tears of joy or the other kind, but moms and dads can be consoled with a complimentary Shutterfly gift card that accompanies the purchase of any photo package.
Westfield Culver City, 6000 Sepulveda Blvd. (Center Court, Level 1); 310-390-5073
Free Easter Arts and Crafts at Royal/T
The Japanese-style café Royal/T on Washington Boulevard is hosting an Easter-themed high tea, complete with complimentary arts and crafts workshops for the kiddos. While families can dine on tiny tea sandwiches and carrot cupcakes, little ones can take time to make bunny ears or decorate eggs. The Easter High Tea set is $25—which can feed three people as an appetizer—with an a la carte menu also available.
Royal/T Café, 8910 Washington Blvd.; 310-559-6300
$15 Kids Easter Menu at Fraiche
Parents can indulge in a three-course Easter meal for a mere $35 at this French/Italian restaurant, and the kiddos are more than welcome to join. They even get their own $15 menu. The prix fixe adults’ menu, available April 24 from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., features such items as brioche French toast, truffle burger and pistachio crème brulee.
Fraiche, 9411 Culver Blvd.; 310-839-6800
