Easter Egg Hunt Ideas


The traditional way to play outdoors this Easter is to have an Easter egg hunt. There are several ways to go about this. You can go the easy route and buy some chocolate eggs all ready and wrapped up or you can go all out and create your own.

If you have little people who are all excited about helping you decorate your eggs check out these 7 Tips for Dyeing Easter Eggs from babble. For older kids why not try a glow in the dark Easter hunt with plastic eggs and glow in the dark bracelets, a brilliant way to get those ‘too old’ for egg hunt tweenagers involved. Or why not take it one step further and make your own natural dyes and leaf imprint your eggs with the kids. The perfect opportunity to bring nature into your Easter celebrations.

Once you have your eggs ready, whether bought or created, you then need to think about prizes. If you have more than one child you can either give a special prize to the child who has collected the most eggs or give each child a different colour egg to look for and then they all get the same prizes. These can be chocolate eggs or you can try something a bit different.

As an alternative to the traditional chocolate prize why not try a nature detectives membership. A gift that will keep on giving all year round and get the whole family outdoors. How about a day trip to your local farm to meet all the little lambs and Easter chicks. A pack of wildflower or vegetable seeds.

Whatever you do this Easter, we would love to hear about it. Or maybe you have some some twists on the traditional to share? Either way you can get in touch by posting on our facebook page or tweeting us @Adventure Togs.

Have a lovely Easter!

  1. Lots of good ideas there. We have a mini egg hunt in the garden (from the easter bunny of course 😉 ) but it is nice to think of other non chocolate ideas for future years.

  2. wow those eggs are stunning. How did you get the leaf prints on them. I loved dying eggs as a kid. It was the best part before the big hunt. Great ideas as we don’t do chocolate due to allergies in this house. Happy Easter. #letkidsbekids

  3. I absolutely love this idea of dying eggs. Do you think it can be done with normal food colouring? I think this is fun for kids whatever the age but I know they will only be hunting for the chocolate kind! #letkidsbekids

  4. Those eggs are sooo beautiful. Can’t wait till my two are old enough to enjoy painting them – this years efforts were smashed and eaten within minutes! #letkidsbekids
