An Easter egg hunt is a very traditional way to celebrate this holiday, but this year make sure your hunt is the best ever with our easy tips.
- Get everyone in the mood for Easter by decorating your home with pastel coloured balloons or a cute Easter wreath for your front door. Decorate tables with pastel coloured cloths, ready for an Easter brunch once all the eggs are found.
- Prep your Easter eggs well in advance, whether they are real or plastic. Fill plastic eggs with small toys or sweets, or numbers corresponding to more significant gifts. Allow about a dozen eggs per guest, so everyone has a good chance of finding plenty.
- Hide the eggs in age-appropriate places, or you could even divide your garden into two sections for younger and older children.
- Make a note of how many eggs are hidden so you can be sure the very last one is discovered by the end of the hunt.
- Continue the fun afterwards with creative Easter games and activities that will appeal to a variety of ages. Choose indoor games like pinning the tail on the Easter bunny or have some colouring pages printed out, or play outdoor Easter oriented games. You could even have a glow-in-the-dark Easter egg hunt.
