Make your next Easter egg hunt a hit for kids of all ages with tips and advice on how to make it egg-stra fun.
No Easter celebration is complete without an egg hunt! Whether you’re planning an indoor event for 3 or an outdoor event for 30, we have a few ideas to make it a success.
1. Start With Plastic Eggs
Real eggs can crack, and it’s time-consuming to cook and dye a large batch. Instead, use the plastic variety and ask everyone to return them at the end of the hunt so they can be reused for next year!
2. Hide Little Prizes Inside
Stuff the plastic eggs with stickers, small wrapped candy or gum, small toys or coins. The Golden Dollar coins also make great bonus prizes. Finally, consider choosing random winners, rather than the one who has the most eggs.
3. Use Different Colors
Color code the eggs according to age. Designate the blue and pink eggs for toddlers and leave them in plain site so they’re easier to find. Use green and orange for preschool aged kids and make them a bit harder to find. Use yellow and purple for older kids, and so on. This way all kids have an equal chance at finding the eggs.
4. Make Egg Words
For older kids, write a different letter on each egg. Then have them create words with the eggs they’ve found. The kid with the most words wins a prize.
5. Be Safe
Think about your location carefully ahead of time, and be aware of any possible hazards, such as water or traffic. An open space such a park or football field is ideal, but if you have a large backyard, that will work too. Make sure everyone knows the boundaries, and if you have a large group, ask parents to keep an eye on the little ones.
