MORE Awesome Easter Egg Hunts

Updated on April 22, 2011

Easter Egg Hunt

What is the age of children where it's time to stop Having Easter Egg Hunts?

Follow that line!

Here is another awesome Easter egg hunt that anyone can do with a little time. Kids absolutely love this one. It is very simple and doesn't require....get this....PLASTIC EASTER EGGS! You can do this with any amount of children, but keep in mind the more children to plan for will chew up a little more of your time. Here is how it works:

Step 1: Depending on how many children you are setting up this hunt for depends on how many balls of yarn you will need. That's right yarn, and preferably different colors for every child that is in the hunt.

Step 2: Have a starting point where you can tie the yarn to something sturdy or something that won't move...perhaps a leg of a couch, kitchen table, or a chair. Once you have it tied, string the yarn everywhere ! String it under, over, through, around objects throughout the house. Of course, be careful not to string it by areas where things of value could be broken.

Step 3: Eventually you will want the string to end in some other room...some place that is out of sight once they start the journey. The finish is where they will find their Easter baskets - loaded with candy and maybe a few Easter eggs (c'mon you can't get rid of them completely).

The Rules: The first thing you tell the kids is that they must start at the starting place. Their job is to follow their own string of yarn no matter where it goes. If it's under something, then they must crawl under it, if it's over something then they should climb over it (remember what I said about valuables) all the way to the finish line.

Your house or area will look like a giant spider web before they start. And when they wake up and see what the Easter Bunny has done they won't believe it. It will also peak their curiosity as to why they have to follow their string of yarn. Once they see where it leads to they will love it! Here is my only problem....with all these great hunts....what will that clever Easter bunny come up with next year!!! Have Fun!

Please let me know if you have any questions about any of my hunts published here!
