It’s time to plan a fun outdoor event because Easter is just around the corner. What’s really nice is the fact that the whole family can participate in this event. You can make it as memorable as possible by filling it with fun activities for all ages. However, making time to plan such an incredible Easter egg hunt can be a problem. Baby’s Own Room wants to share how to quickly plan a fun Easter Egg Hunt that doubles up as a bonding experience for the family.


Set the Time and Carefully Consider the Ages of Your Guests

The more the merrier when it comes to how many family members and friends should participate in your Easter Egg Hunt. This will make the egg hunt livelier and more adventurous. This also means that you will have various age groups joining in the fun. You should set a date and time for the hunt that accommodates everyone.

Quick Tip: The egg hunt should take into account the various age groups of the participants. For example, you should hide Easter eggs in the lawn for toddlers or in bushes for the elderly. This way both age groups will be able to reach the Easter eggs quite easily. 

Determine the Location and Set a Boundary Line 

A good location is important for any successful egg hunt. You do not want to be at the mercy of the elements while you are having fun. For example, it may start raining during your Easter Egg Hunt. This is why you should have a backup plan. Your backyard is a wise choice for a location because you can move the fun indoors if the weather becomes unfriendly. Set a boundary after you determine the location. A boundary is important because it keeps the children within sight.

Make a List of Hiding Places and Have Some Prizes 

A hunt is all about treasure and as such, an Easter Egg Hunt without prizes would not be fun! You should have prizes attached to the Easter eggs. These prizes could be in the eggs or certain eggs can indicate certain prizes at the end of the hunt. For example, you can have chocolate candies or jelly beans in the Easter eggs. Remember to make a list of all the hiding places. This will help you to direct children to eggs that are hard to find during the hunt or help you collect unfound eggs after the hunt.

Bonus Tip: You should also have a surprise prize for the person who found the least eggs. Doing so ensures that everyone is happy at the end of the Easter Egg Hunt. What fun ways do you celebrate Easter egg hunts with your family? Baby’s Own Room would love to hear from you! 🙂
