Brad Pitt treated his children to some Easter treats at a film screening this weekend.

On Sunday (03.04.11) the actor took Maddox, nine, Pax, seven, Zahara, six, and four-year-old Shiloh to see animated movie 'Hop' at the Directors Guild Of America in Los Angeles, where they also indulged in some delicious treats and took part in an Easter egg hunt.

With their mother Angelina Jolie and two younger siblings Knox and Vivienne absent from the family occasion, the children made the most of their sweet tooths but also made sure to take home some treats for the two-year-old twins.

An eyewitness told E!: "Each child walked away with A.sweeT.Boutique's chocolate-covered pretzel rods, gummy butterflies, gummy cherries and jelly beans.

"The kids were so cute, polite and shy. Brad had to help them do the ordering of what they wanted in their little goody bags. They also made sure to take home some candy sticks for their siblings who weren't there."

Another source told the Los Angeles Times newspaper: "The kids participated in the hunt and everyone looked like they were having a great time. They stayed for pretty much the whole event."

The film's stars James Marsden, Adam Sandler and Elizabeth Perkins were also at the event, which was put on to benefit EBMRF - an organization that Brad has supported for a long time and is dedicated to researching and curing skin diseases that affect children.
