Plan the perfect Easter Egg Hunt

Easter time calls for lots of Chocolate-y fun. Kids (and adults) love searching around for hidden treats so here are some hints and tips from Raring2go! to help you plan the perfect Easter Egg Hunt.

  • If you have a big garden with lots of bushes and plants to hide eggs behind that’s great but make sure you have a contingency plan to move indoors if the weather is against you.
  • Keep the sugar levels in check by including some non-chocolate Easter egg alternatives such as small Easter-themed puzzles, colouring-in, small soft toys or wearable bunny ears. You could hide the prizes in plastic eggs to keep up the ‘egg’ theme.
  • Young children will want to enjoy their chocolate rewards as soon as they find them. If you are planning a big family lunch think about timings to make sure you don’t ruin their appetites ahead of the meal.
  • If toddlers or small children are involved, don’t hide the eggs too high, and also make sure that there is nothing potentially dangerous.
  • You could have some fun with your little ones ahead of the hunt by decorating a container with Easter pictures and stickers.
  • A series of clues can make for a more ordered hunt as well as make the fun and entertainment last a little longer. Choose word-based or picture clues to suit the ages of your children. Grandparents and other friends and family who can’t be there on the day could record short video clues.
  • Count the eggs before you hide them and keep track of how many have been found.
  • Add a few extra treats for greedy grown-ups who want to tuck in!
