What is Easter without a few Easter egg hunts?

For some visually impaired children, Easter can leave them feeling a bit left out. That's why the Foundation for Blind Children in Phoenix hold a very special Easter egg hunt every year just for them.

They use specially made eggs that make a beeping sound that allows the kids to follow their ears right to the eggs.

"We're having our annual beeper Easter egg hunt," said Marc Ashton.

It's a little take on normal Easter egg hunt we have to use sounds instead of hunting with your eyes because our children are blind.

"I just simply start feeling around with my hands to see if I can find some," said Yazy Rad.

"Coming out here helps him interact with others with visually impairment, just really a way for him to pick up skills that the mainline school system may not be able to cater to," said Morgan Roperts.

"I had never met anyone visually impaired before until our daughter, so this organization clued me into senses that I think we take for granted; scent, you know feeling so coming here it opens your eyes to things you can do at home that you never thought of before," said Roberta Wilson.
