Google Doodle Easter Eggs

Google Doodle Easter Eggs

Over the years, Google has surprised us with what they call Doodles. These are artistic renditions of their logo that can be found on their search page. They usually only appear for a day, but fortunately for us, Google files many of them away in a special place on the web.

Google Easter Egg Series

An Easter basket isn’t the only place you’ll find Easter eggs. You can find them hidden away in apps, video games, and even in the Google search box.

Google has a variety of Easter eggs hidden all over the
