Top tips for an eggcellent Easter hunt!

Easter egg hunt tips.

Everyone knows that the best part of Easter is the Easter egg hunt.

We all remember excitedly counting down the days until the Easter Bunny would pay a visit.

For many kids, your garden is a wonderland of fun and it only gets better when there are chocolatey treats to find!

This year we have a few Easter egg hunt tips to make this year’s hunt the best yet.

Leave evidence

The first step for the hunt to begin is for the Easter Bunny to arrive.

Make sure you leave a few chunks of carrot (and maybe a few paw-prints) near the door to show that the Bunny has been.

This will create excitement that the Easter Bunny really has left them treats!

Communal basket

If you have more than one child, you would know better than anyone else that the hunt can quickly escalate to World War 3 if one sibling has more than the other.

To solve this problem, put one big basket in the middle of the garden for the children to put all the eggs they find, and at the end of the hunt, divide the eggs evenly for everyone.

Get them thinking

To keep things interesting for older kids, have the Easter Bunny leave a map or some riddles that give tricky clues as to where the eggs are hidden.

This way you can hide the treats in more complex places such as a hanging plant or underneath a specific plant that you name in your riddle.

Cater to adults

One for the adults: how about using hollow plastic eggs and filling them with vouchers/coupons for local restaurants and shops?

You can watch your waistline and your back pocket all at the same time.

Nominate a prize egg that contains a $50 gift voucher for the hunter that finds it.

Of course, to be fair, you’ll have to nominate one person to hide the eggs.

Keep them happy by laying out a spread of hot cross buns, mini Easter eggs and a nice cool drink and let the celebrations unwrap.
