HOW TO ORGANISE A SIMPLE EGG HUNT AT EASTER - IDEAS FOR SMALL CHILDREN

The easiest egg hunt you can create at Easter is to hide eggs around the home or out in the garden, and let the children find them. Use candy eggs, chocolate eggs and real, coloured eggs. In this way, there will be lots for the children to collect during the egg hunt! If you have small children, you can use a few different tricks to help guide them to the eggs. Here are some simple egg hunting tips to try:

  • Make a simple map.
  • Make use of signs and cute Easter decorations that show the children where to look.
  • Let the children follow the Easter bunny's paw prints. You could make them with potting soil outside, draw some in chalk or use flour if you are inside. <br>

You could even combine different ways of directing them to make it more exciting for the children to find their way to the eggs this Easter!

Paw prints in soil are used as a clue for children to find eggs for an Easter egg hunt in the garden.

ORGANISE AN EASTER HUNT WITH RIDDLES FOR OLDER CHILDREN

If you have older children or perhaps some adults who would like to participate in the egg hunt, then you can invest in arranging a more advanced egg hunt with riddles or clues to lead the eager participants to hidden prizes. Depending on the age of those taking part, you can adjust the level of the clues but hiding the eggs in places with an Easter theme is a great place to start.

How to arrange an egg hunt with riddles at Easter:

  • Create 6 - 8 riddles or clues depending on how long you want the egg hunt to last.
  • Cut out each riddle and place the riddles 2 - 6 together with an Easter egg, candy eggs or even real ones, in the hiding places you have chosen. This way everyone must solve each clue before they can move on to the next one. They also get to collect eggs as they move around, the more riddles they solve the more prizes they win.
  • Give the first clue or riddle to the participants so they know where to start looking. Now the egg hunt can begin! <br>
