Mentoring Tiny Humans is a local neurodivergent-owned business that offers services such as tie-dye workshops, educational classes, field trips, and free community events for all ages and all abilities. Accessibility, accommodations, and sensory specific supplies and information is considered and provided for each event.
They also offer an online shop geared toward the neurodivergent and includes items like sensory bins, fidgets, DIY crafts, themed activities, tie-dye clothing and supplies. Proceeds from their shop benefit their free community events, sensory spaces, and consultation services for local community centers, businesses, schools, and organizations.
Cultivating Inclusion is a Murrieta-based nonprofit organization that partners with several organizations to provide a safe environment for participants to do meaningful work while acquiring skills that might help them gain employable skills while feeling the sun of the outdoors and the pride that comes with helping others in need. The garden also provides space for horticultural therapy and food harvested from the garden is then donated to local food distribution centers in the Temecula Valley to help the food insecure.
The event is a full circle moment for Typhanie Sharfner, owner of Mentoring Tiny Humans. She remembers attending an egg hunt with her son at Cultivating Inclusion years ago. That event, and Cultivating Inclusion, stuck with her.
“While we have different approaches, our goals of creating a safe space while providing learning and social opportunities for the special needs community align. When thinking of ways I could provide my son and clientele with an inclusive egg hunt, I immediately thought of Cultivating Inclusion. I hope our partnership can create that same feeling and memories for those who attend this year!,” said Sharfner.
Mary Ann Tam, director of Cultivating Inclusion agrees.
“We have done egg hunts before but with the innovative ideas Typhanie brings will make this event truly special, fun, and above all inclusive!”
This event is open to all ages, however, developmental ages up to 14 may get the most enjoyment. Families are encouraged to use their discretion for their particular family. Caregivers and medical chaperones are welcome.
The event cost is per family, however, when purchasing, please purchase one "family pass" and specify the number of adults and children (or those participating in the hunt) for headcount and accounting purposes. Space is limited to 60 egg hunters and their families and caregivers. Additional raffle tickets and purchases can be picked up the day of at check-in.
While there is fun to be had, there will be no surprise guests, and the hunt will begin at noon. An itinerary and list of activities will be provided and all activities (aside from the hunt) will be available throughout the event, along with announcements to help front load information.
