Easter Egg Hunt Ideas to Add Fun and Excitement

Are you searching for some fun and interesting Easter egg hunt ideas?

The usual old Easter egg hunt can get a little less exciting over time, but when you have some great ideas to help bring some novelty, you'll find that friends and family look forward to this occasion more than ever.

So, what are some Easter egg hunt ideas you could explore?

  • Depending on the age of the participants, you may want to consider having a scavenger Easter egg hunt. You can add little clues into plastic eggs that lead to different prizes for the participants. Help to keep things fair by ensuring that there is more than one prize and leave clues that lead to each one. This offers lots of options because your "prizes" can range in expense from a basket filled with chocolates and treats to gift cards for a dinner out for the older guests. For little ones, inexpensive gifts might include Easter themed sidewalk chalk or coloring books and crayons.

  • For one possible Easter egg hunt idea, consider color coding the Easter eggs that you have kids looking for. This can mean that, depending on the number of children that are participating, you can have each child find five or even 10 of their designated colors. If you're using plastic eggs, you may want to keep the numbers down and stuff them with little inexpensive treats. When each child finds all of their eggs, you should have an Easter surprise waiting for him or her.

  • As an Easter egg hunt idea, you might also want to consider making treasure maps. This can be fun because the X marks the spot, and this is where the prize lies. Make it even more enjoyable by using landmarks in your yard where eggs are hidden. Be a little complicated and count out the number of steps that the children should take. Make different maps for different groups so each child gets some of the treasure.

  • You might just want to keep it simple. Depending on the size of your group, you'll want to make sure that each child has about five to 10 eggs. And when you fill plastic eggs with treasures, you'll find that every child gets a fair share of treats that they can enjoy. This helps you to ensure that each child has treats and gets you out of having to provide a potentially expensive prize at the end of the hunt. Be sure to pack eggs with things that all of the children will enjoy, and if you have a mixed group, you may want to skip the toys all together and stick with little treats such as jellybeans and chocolate eggs.

  • Need more Easter egg hunt ideas? How about filling the eggs with coins? This can be costly, but if you're working with a smaller group, you can easily skip the cost of an Easter basket and get rolls of change instead. Fill different colored eggs with different amounts of money and you'll find that your little hunters can profit and shop themselves.

  • Another Easter egg hunt idea is to involve the adults. If you have kids and adults for your hunt, you might want to let the kids hide the eggs and put the adults to work finding them. This works well if you have friends and family coming over. You can give the adults treats in their eggs, or let the children who hid the eggs keep the prize. Either way, this is a fun way for kids to get involved and watch the adults hunt for a while.

There are many ways to enjoy the same old Easter egg hunt, so get creative with your Easter egg hunt ideas and make sure that everyone enjoys the hunt this year.

All the best with your planning, and have great fun!
