Amazing Easter Egg Hunts for Kids

Updated on April 22, 2011

The Hunt

Are you getting tired of the same old Easter Egg Hunt on Easter...Hide those little plastic Easter eggs all over the house with little pieces of candy in them....yawn yawn yawn...BORING. Follow these simple steps below that will blow your children's minds when they see what the Easter Bunny has done for them!

Step 1: Unfortunately, you do have to purchase those little plastic's the only way to really make things interesting. BUT, it's what you put inside them that makes the adventure come to life.

Step 2: Instead of filling ALL the eggs with candy, fill some with clues...clues as to where other eggs could be hidden out of the naked eye. Place numbers on the clues so they have to go in order to locate the Easter Bunny's Basket of surprises! i.e. CLUE 1: Look inside the place where we keep milk for another clue!" (obviously it's in the refrigerator).

Step 3: You can make as many of these clues as you like, but to make the hunt last a little longer I suggest anywhere from 5-10 clues. I also like to purchase the LARGER plastic eggs so that when they figure out the clue they see something different - a larger egg! Now once your children are done running & tripping over each other on the way to the refrigerator - you need to make sure there is another egg in there describing another clue as to where another egg can be found!

Step 4: This goes on until they reach the final egg which will put them at their final destination where the Golden Easter Basket lies waiting for them! This is where I place their Easter Bunny Basket with all their goodies! (one year it was in the trunk of my car!!) Somewhere they would have never expected!

This is just something I did one year...I have many more amazing hunts...comment in the comment section of this article and I'll try to get back with you with other ideas! Happy Hunting!
