Santa Ana : 'Beeping' Eggs Help Blind Children in Hunt

A group of about 20 blind children experienced their first Easter egg hunt Friday, thanks to "beeping" eggs that led the children to them through the youngsters' keen sense of hearing.

The "beeper" egg hunt was a first for the young students at the Blind Children's Learning Center in Santa Ana, who until now have had to forgo the Easter tradition that sighted children enjoy, according to Linn Morgan, director of community relations.

After chasing down the large plastic eggs, which were hidden throughout the center's yard, the children exchanged them for traditional Easter eggs and prizes, Morgan said.

The eggs were provided by the Pioneers, an employee group from Pacific Bell. The group also provides the center with beeping softballs, Morgan said.
