Today: Egg Scramble

Taylor Youngblood Communications, Mueller Neighborhood Association

Dear Neighbors,

It’s Egg Scramble 2021. Below you will find the live GPS tracking for the Mueller Bunny as well as information and resources for all the Egg Scramble activities planned for today.

Mueller Bunny Neighborhood Cruise

The Mueller Bunny will be hoppin’ around Mueller on Saturday, April 3, starting at 2 pm! 

The Bunny only has the first dose of the vaccine and decided to remain in the truck again this year. Safety first! Bunny plans to drive around each park mentioned below as the truck makes its way through the neighborhood. The Bunny hopes all of the kids and neighbors will practice social distancing if they plan to be at a park or anywhere along the route.  Follow Bunny live here.

The Mueller Bunny will circle Branch Park starting at 2:00 p.m., and then will follow the route shown below (all times approximate).  

  1. Mary Elizabeth Branch Park (2 pm)
  2. Jessie Andrews Park (2:15 pm)
  3. John Gaines Park (2:25 pm)
  4. Southwest Greenway (2:35 pm, between Tilley and Berkman)
  5. Ella Wooten Park (2:45 pm)
  6. Mueller Lake Park (2:55 pm)
  7. Paggi Square Park (3:20 pm)

Bunny in the Window

Bunny in the Window is a scavenger hunt for little kids and their parents performed in a similar fashion to “Teddy Bear Hunts” that became popular near the beginning of the pandemic. Neighbors will place rabbits, ducks, baby chickens (or pictures) in the windows of their homes. Kids and parents will be able to walk through their neighborhood looking for the animals in the window.

Check with your block captain for more information.

Bicycle Orienteering

Orienteering is an activity popular in New Zealand. Small groups (such as a family) download an instruction sheet and map marked up with roughly 20 locations. The group goes to that location and answers a question based on what they discover. For example, at the map marker near the Mueller food trucks, the question is “How much are the migas poblanas?” Jennifer Kidd, one of our neighbors, created a route for the Egg Scramble. To understand orienteering better, see one of the routes she created in 2020 focused on the Mueller neighborhood:  Mueller “Double Bubble” Orienteering page

Treasure Hops

Treasure Hops will be oriented towards pre-teens. A list of questions will be produced based on yard decorations in the neighborhood. Several routes will be produced so groups of kids can explore close to their homes and not have to cross any major streets.
