Easter Egg Hunt Tips
1. Label plastic eggs with each child’s initial, this is especially important with big age differences. It encourages siblings to help each other during the hunt rather than compete.
2. Keep track of where you hide the eggs, whether it’s a detailed list or just a general idea like 5 eggs by the jungle gym and 4 eggs near the orange tree. Discovering ant covered surprises a week later is no fun!
3. Stick to non chocolate options or freeze chocolatey treats and fill eggs right before the hunt begins. This is a no brainer in Arizona but even in cooler parts of the country, an plastic egg can warm up quick and it doesn’t take much to melt chocolate! WHOPPERS ROBIN EGGS and JOLLY RANCHER jelly beans are two of my favorite egg hunt options.
4. If you want to elevate the hunt for older kids try a scavenger hunt. Place clues in some of the eggs that leads them to their Easter Baskets or another fun surprise. Or check out this alternate scavenger hunt idea from the Celebrate With Hershey’s.
