Novel Easter Egg Hunt Ideas
Easter Bunny Tracks
Surely there could be nothing more adorable than the kids waking up on Easter morning to find that the Easter Bunny has left them a personalized note and a few bunny tracks pointing them in the direction of the hidden eggs. These cute printables make setting up the bunny-track hunt a breeze.
Have it indoors
If the Irish weather is spoiling your hunt, you can turn a cold or rainy Easter day into an adventure when you tell your kids they’re going to hunt for all their eggs inside the house. To make the indoor egg hunt even more unique, try hiding the eggs in a trail or with clues leading to one giant Easter basket.
Garden of Easter Eggs
If they're too little to hunt too far outside, you can make your own Easter egg garden that “grows” eggs instead. Placing Easter egg flowers in the grass with sweets or chocs inside will make it easy for even the littlest ones to find their treats.
Golden egg hunt
Those adventurous little pirates will get a kick out of this Easter egg treasure hunt. After all, who can resist buried treasure? Especially if that means a one-of-a-kind golden egg left behind by the Easter Bunny.
Energy fuelled hunt
So, if your kids have been begging for Easter eggs all day long, why not make them work for it? Hide sports-themed Easter eggs that contain an active instruction along with an egg. Kids then have to do 10 press ups or run a lap around the yard before they can move on to the next egg. Plus they'll probably sleep very well after this one and burn off some of the calories from eating them.
Letter & Word hunt
Learning can be fun, right? Younger kids who are just figuring out how to spell and read will enjoy hunting for Easter eggs that each contain a letter to spell out a hidden message. Kids can work together to find the letter-filled eggs and put together an Easter message to earn a prize.
Child guided hunt
Any child who loves to pull a fast one on their parents will be thrilled to be in charge of an Easter egg hunt. Ask the children to hide a basket of eggs around the garden— then, you have to find them. As for any eggs you don't find within a certain time limit — say, 10-15 minutes? The kids get to keep those for themselves. Win Win!!
Scavenger Egg Hunt
This one's for the little older kids who are looking for a little challenge: Make over your traditional Easter egg hunt using a scavenger hunt checklist. You can task kids with finding a variety of different objects hidden around the garden (like two blue eggs, three yellow eggs, two chocolate eggs and a chocolate Easter bunny) before time is up.
Glow-in-the-dark evening hunt
This may require a little patience, but it's worth the wait. If you can get your kids to hold off on their Easter egg hunt for most of the day, reward them with a hunt to find glow-in-the-dark eggs.
