Whether you’re keeping it local, or hitting the road this Easter holiday, chances are visions of goodie-packed Easter eggs are already dancing around in your little ones’ heads. Here are a few quick tips for maximizing the fun (and minimizing the sugar) at any egg hunt.
- Tidy Smiles – Taking family photos? Schedule your shoot before the egg hunt and big meal so your kids look adorable for pictures.
- Avoid Sugar Highs – Fill some eggs with stickers, bunny crackers, finger puppets, stamp rings, bouncy balls, erasers, and our favorite – mini sticky hands! Hatchimal eggs are a great outside-the-box option that kids always enjoy.
- Keep it Fair – If there are lots of littles, give each one a specific color of egg to look for so everyone gets about the same amount of treats.
- Organize by Age Group – Let the youngest go first and pick up the closest eggs. Leave the hardest to find eggs, and the ones placed at the greatest distance, for the older kids.
- Bounce like a Bunny – If you have a large family, consider renting an Easter bouncy house for post-hunt fun. They’ll bounce for hours and have a blast!
- Cottontail Trail – For especially tricky to find eggs, use bunny footprints as a hint. You can make them out of cardboard paper and press them into the ground before the hunt.
- Easy Peasy – Attend a community egg hunt and let the hosting organization do all the work so you can join your child for the fun.
