Easter is an exciting time, and children across the country are counting down the days until they’re allowed to eat chocolate for breakfast.
Another part of Easter that is popular around the world is the Easter egg hunt. The concept is simple: someone hides small chocolate eggs in the house and then everyone goes looking for them.
Here’s everything you need to know about conducting an Easter egg hunt and how to make it even more exciting for your household this year…
What day to look for Easter eggs?
There is no set day for Easter egg hunts, it’s really up to you when to hunt for your Easter eggs. Most people tend to organize Easter egg hunts on Easter Sunday, but for others Sunday is a religious day. If that’s the case, you can do your egg hunt the day before or the day after.
Check out some of our ideas below to make this year’s egg hunt the greatest yet…
Easter egg hunt ideas to try this year
If you have older kids or are going on an Easter egg hunt with friends, why not spice it up a bit and turn your egg hunt into a clue-filled scavenger hunt?
Instead of everyone running around aimlessly, players must solve a clue to find out where the eggs and the next clue are! Everyone can work together to collect chocolate eggs until they reach the end of all the clues.
Easter Egg Relay Race
This is a great way to get everyone involved in the Easter egg hunt. Divide players into teams and let one person from each team run away to find the first eggs. If they come back with an egg, it’s the next person on each team’s turn and so on and so on.
This adds another layer to your Easter egg hunt and is a fun way to keep little ones busy. With each egg you can set a small challenge that must be completed before they can take the egg. Challenges could include: do ten star jumps, hop around the room like a bunny, come up with your own dance move.
Easter egg hunt alternatives to chocolate
If you want to host an Easter egg hunt but find that chocolate doesn’t work for some reason, there are plenty of alternatives.
You can fill plastic eggs with fun rewards for your kids to collect. Ideas would be: ten extra minutes of TV time, movie night, skipping chores for a day, inviting a friend over, choosing dinner tonight.
Another idea is to fill plastic eggs with puzzle pieces. When all the pieces are collected, they can put the puzzle together and trade it in for a prize.
