No matter what age, Easter egg hunts are a bank holiday must. Nothing beats hitting the sugary jackpot and taking home a basket full of chocolate. From sign posts to personalised bags, you’ll be giving the Easter bunny a run for his money with these Easter egg hunt ideas.
TOP TIPS FOR AN EASTER EGG HUNT:
1. Plan the route.
Sign posts and designated paths with help with the chaos that ensues once the kids are on the trail.
2. Vary the size and style of egg.
Go for a variety of colours and sizes of egg so you can hide them in different spots along the way. You could even use plastic eggs if you’re outside and fill them with treats.
3. Create age-relevant paths.
Some of the older children will be faster off the mark, keep some spare eggs to replace those that get taken on the first round so younger kids get a fair share.
4. Set a time limit.
Those keen Easter bunnies may not know when they can stop the hunt for more eggs, so let them know when all the eggs have been found.
5. Pair them up.
Working in teams and pairs is a great way to encourage sharing, taking turns and being patient.
