Easter egg hunts have become an Easter family tradition of ours over the past few years. The children love the excitement of finding the eggs, and it's a perfect opportunity to get some cute photos of your little ones dressed up in their cute Easter hair accessories!
Here are some easy steps you can follow:
Pick a location:
The first step is to decide where you want to have your Easter egg hunt. I usually try and do a mix of inside and outside (weather depending).
Stock up on eggs:
You can either buy little refillable eggs that can be filled with sweets or small toys. These can be saved and reused the following year.
Alternatively, you can get a packet of small chocolate eggs like these. I would recommend having one larger egg to hide at the end of the hunt as the "prize" egg.
Don't forget the Easter baskets:
One year I forgot to get an Easter basket/bucket for the children to use to collect their eggs! Why not get creative and have fun making homemade Easter baskets.
Hide the eggs:
Hide the eggs in various locations throughout the designated area. You can download my free Easter Egg hunt clues here that I have made to make this super simple!
You may need to establish some rules for the egg hunt (especially if there are a group of children doing the egg hunt at the same time), such as how many eggs each person can find and where to return the empty eggs.
Plan additional activities:
Plan additional activities such as Easter crafts, egg decorating, or other Easter-themed games to keep everyone entertained.
Happy Easter egg hunting!
