PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — With the Easter bunny practicing social distancing and Easter egg hunts being called off, what's a 4-year-old, like Palm Beach Gardens resident Ainsley Watt, to do to in order to score all that candy?

"[Last year] we went hunting for all those eggs," said Ainsley.

And this year, Ainsley is looking for Easter eggs hung in windows in her neighborhood.

"We are doing a virtual egg hunt," said Ainsley's sister, Reese Alvardo.

The Watts live in Palm Beach Gardens and each year the Montecito neighborhood holds an annual Easter egg hunt.

"[This year] it's different, but everything is different right now," said Kate Watt.

Kate said her kids haven't left their neighborhood in over four weeks.

"[Making the eggs] passes the time. We're all bored right now," said Reese.

On the neighborhood's Facebook group, several homes decided to participate in the virtual hunt.
