One of the highlights of Easter is our annual Easter egg hunt. My kids look forward to them every year!
If you looking for some inspiration, here are a few creative and fun Easter egg hunt ideas that you might want to add to your family’s Easter activities this year.
Scavenger Easter Egg Hunt
The scavenger Easter egg hunts are one option you might like to try. Instead of simply hiding the eggs and having the children look through the yard to find them, hide them in specific places throughout the house.
Include a clue to start them on their egg-hunting journey. If you have more than one child, you may want to designate a specific color egg for each child. For their final clue, have them find their filled Easter basket or another special gift.
Easter Egg Coupons
Give coupons rather than candy. This is particularly good for teenagers as you can give them a coupon for a movie rental, special privileges, or a new CD from their favorite singer.
Hide the coupons in the eggs and they may actually choose to go searching. For families with children of varying ages, you may want to hide the teenager’s eggs in a specific area or in the house.
Prize eggs are good for a neighborhood activity or one for a civic or religious organization.
Hide mainly plastic eggs filled with candy and little toys, stickers, or temporary tattoos. Then hide two or three other real eggs which have a number painted on them. When someone finds the real egg, they can exchange it for a prize which corresponds to that number.
Reverse Egg Hunt
Instead of the children doing the hunting, have each child hide up to four of their eggs in the house. After they’re hidden, the adults in the family get to see how many of the eggs they can find. You may discover how smart your children are when you can’t find them all.
It’s sometimes challenging coming up with creative Easter egg hunt ideas, but these ideas may give you the spark of creativity you need. Use one of these ideas if you’re having problems thinking of something different, and then start thinking about how you can make next year’s egg hunt even better.
