To make the Easter egg hunt activity challenging, think of the perfect spots that will make the eggs harder to find. It is also recommended for you to keep track of your hiding spots, so you can easily collect the Easter eggs that the kids weren’t able to find. Moreover, you should also see to it that the complexity of the activity is appropriate for the age of the participants.

These Easter egg hunt preparation tips will surely help make the event a memorable one. On the exact day of the activity, assign adults who will assist the kids to make everything run smoothly. If you see some kids who weren’t able to bring their own Easter baskets, hand them some baskets, pails, or bags, so they can also participate. Lastly, in case you have made the Easter eggs too difficult to find, you can provide some clues to the children so they won’t get bored or discouraged.

Find the Perfect Location for the Easter Egg Hunt

One of the most important things that you need to consider first when planning is the place where the event will be held. Easter egg hunts can be conducted indoors or outdoors. In case you have decided to hold the event outdoors, such as in your yard or in a park, you need to make sure that the area is safe for the kids.

Moreover, since you can’t really predict the weather accurately, you might also want to set an alternative date for the Easter egg hunt just in case it rains. If you are just organizing a small event with only a few participants, you can also move it indoors in the event of a bad weather.

Prepare the Easter Eggs

You can opt to use hard boiled chicken eggs, ornate eggs, or plastic eggs. However, nowadays it is better to use the plastic ones which can be filled with candies and chocolates inside. You can also fill the eggs with coins or other prizes that can fit inside.

If you have decided to use real chicken eggs, it is advisable to decorate and paint them with different colors. When the egg hunt ended and it is time to count the eggs that each kid has collected, the participants can exchange each one for a prize based on the color of the eggs.

In order to determine the number of eggs to purchase, count the number of participants for the event and allot around 15-20 Easter eggs for each person. If your participants are older kids, such as those who are between 8-11 years old, you might want to make the activity more challenging.

Create A Special Easter Bunny Egg

In order to create a special Easter Bunny egg, you will need a plastic egg, scissors, 2 white pom-poms (medium sized), 2 googly eyes, 1 pink pom-pom (small), glue, and craft foam that is colored pink.

The first thing that you need to do is to draw bunny ears on the pink craft foam and then cut them out, so you can glue them on top of the plastic egg. Next, glue the googly eyes on the egg, as well as the small pink pom-pom that will serve as the nose. After that, glue the two medium sized white pom-poms in such a way that it will appear like they’re the cheeks of the bunny. Lastly, do not forget to fill up the plastic egg with a special type of candy, or better yet, prepare a special prize for the participant who was able to find the special Easter Bunny egg.

  7. I’ve only done one Easter Egg hunt and it was a success but I think I won’t be doing any of this real soon unless it was for a client. Your tips are really spot on though so if ever, I’ll definitely take this to heart 🙂

    We always do the egg hunts. Location is important, our new backyard would never do (just a square, nowhere to hide anything). Our house up north was PERFECT though for eggs. I’ll miss that this year. 🙂
