CHARLESTON, W.Va. (Jeff Morris) -- If you are looking for a little pre-Easter fun this weekend for your family, the Clay Center in Charleston may have “egg”-actly the thing for you.
Egg hunting, egg decorating, puppet shows and bowling will be featured from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at a family fun day called Eggstravaganza.
The Clay Center said on its website that families will enjoy these special activities:
* Jelly Bean Count – noon to 3 p.m. (winner announcement at 3:30 p.m.)
* Bunny ears, noon to 4 p.m.
* Puppet show – 12:30 & 2:30 p.m.
* Egg decorating – noon to 4 p.m. (two eggs for $1; supplies limited)
* Easter bunny appearance – noon & 2 p.m.
* Egg toss – 12:30 p.m.
* Egg hunt (ages 6 and under) – 1 & 3 p.m.

* Egg-citing science demos – 1, 2 & 3 p.m.
* Bunny & chick bowling – 2:30 p.m.
While at the center, "noodle" a catfish, create locks and dams, build a steamboat and more in “RiverWorks Discovery,” the first exhibit in the center’s brand new STEAMworks gallery. Plus, put on your thinking cap and use mathematics, logic, patterns and creative thinking to solve puzzles in the “Brain Teasers 2” exhibit in the Mylan Explore-atory.
Visit the art gallery to vote for the best team and MVP in “Gallery Divided II: A head-to-head matchup between Marshall and WVU art faculty” and explore the natural world through artwork and interactive experiences in “Every Living Thing: A Closer Look at Nature.”
Then, enter the world of nature’s greatest engineer in the giant screen film “Beavers,” and explore the amazing size and scale of the universe in the Clay Center original planetarium show “Beyond the Sky.”
All Eggstravaganza activities, except egg decorating, are included in museum gallery admission, which is free for Clay Center members or $6 for children and $7.50 for adults. Films and planetarium shows are additional.
For even more family fun, inspire imaginations with the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra’s 11 a.m. performance of “The Music of Harry Potter.” Attend both Eggstravaganza and this Family Discovery Series concert and save when you ask for the Wizard’s Pass –$9.50 for kids ages 13 and under and $16 for adults.
