More than 80 Los Angeles families participated in the Blind Children’s Center's annual Beeping Easter Egg Hunt Friday, which is aimed toward visually impaired children who would have a hard time participating in a typical egg hunt

Instead of eggs decorated with multi-colored dyes, kids hunted eggs that emitted a beeping noise around a local school yard, and were able to exchange them for an Easter basket of goodies.

“It turns confusion and overwhelm into open joy,” said Dr. Fernanda Armenta-Schmitt of the Blind Children’s Center, according to KCBS. “It helps us also understand a loss of ability, loss of a skill or sense, doesn’t limit us from having fantastic lives."

Volunteers came up with the beeping egg in 1964, and it has remained an important way to help students at the school develop their sense of hearing, as well as be included in the annual tradition.
