Planning the Perfect Easter Egg Hunt
Easter celebrations wouldn’t be complete without an egg hunt? Here are a few tips to help you organise the perfect hunt this year.
Use different color eggsConsider color coding the eggs according to age. For example you could have two- to four-year-olds looking for blue eggs while those four to six search for green, and so on. That way the little ones have an equal chance at finding the eggs
Keep a recordAlways make a note of how many eggs you’ve used and where they’re hidden. There’s nothing worse than finding melted chocolate under the cushions days later!
Draw a mapWhy note keep things interesting by setting up a treasure hunt for kids. Give each child a map using picture clues for non-readers. Cut out a picture of a chair, for instance, or draw a coffee table to show them where the eggs are. Then be a bit sneaky by hiding another map at one of the clues. Use riddles for older kids and lead them to more difficult places, such as a specific novel on the book shelf
Plastic EggsConsider using plastic egg and filling the eggs with small treats (one per egg), such as fuzzy chicks, temporary tattoos, stickers, small toys, friendship bracelets or sweets.
Don’t forget to have little baskets, bags or plastic cups for the kids to put the eggs they find into!
