Easter Egg Hunt Ideas to Try This Year

My kids have enjoyed the change as it keeps the fun fresh and new each year.   And most importantly, what took the Easter Bunny an hour to do is not decimated (and forgotten!) in less than 5 minutes.

1. Hide the Bunny Hunt

The treasure you find in the Easter eggs is worth bunny munny!

Who doesn’t like shopping? – Hide “Bunny Munny” in several of the plastic eggs to buy things at the “Bunny Emporium”.  Pick up several fun Easter trinkets at the dollar spot or things that appeal to your children (toys, movies, books).  Price them at different price points and have your children shop  with their money.

2. Easter Egg Hunt for Color

Color hunt – Assign hunters a particular color(s) to find on their hunt. This is especially good when hunting with mixed ages, as it allows the younger children a chance to find an equal amount of eggs.

3. Easter Egg Hunt in the Dark

Flashlight Hunt – Put together your hunt the night before Easter.   Using flashlights and glow-in-the-dark paint on the eggs, kids will love to find their eggs at night!

Easter Egg Checklist- Give each hunter a list of what particular eggs they are supposed to find, 4 yellow eggs, 3 purple eggs, 1 golden egg, etc. This turns it into a true hunt and you will find the kids end up helping each other out.

5. Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger hunt – Older kids LOVE a good hunt.   With a little bit of pre-work, this will be a favorite!   Put clues to find each consecutive egg in the plastic eggs hidden throughout the entire house and have their ultimate find be their Easter Baskets.  Be creative with your clues (Hop on over to the place which makes you go brrrr ¦) and make your kids think!
