Is it better to use real eggs or plastic eggs for an Easter egg hunt?
Real eggs are traitional, but are plastic eggs a better option? I like putting prizes "in" the eggs or adding slips of paper that equates to points...some thoughts?
Well, I know when I used to go looking for eggs during Easter. I would pass the real eggs because I figured that candy/money was in the plastic. However, I enjoy coloring the real eggs still to this day.
If the eggs are hard-boiled and painted there's no reason not to use real eggs, although they'd come a cropper if someone stood on them in their eagerness. Plastic might be better with boisterous kids, and you could reward them with real, painted ones when they found the 'decoys'.
You've got ages to make your mind up.
We hard boil and color "real" eggs for eating, but use plastic ones for the egg hunt (with small candies, coins, and other "prizes" inside).
One of my Mom's relatives once used "real" eggs for her kids' egg hunt, and months later, a mysterious odor led them to an undiscovered Easter egg that had been hidden under the radiator. Ugh!!
If your kids like eating eggs use real eggs. They already get candy in their Easter baskets. If they don't like the taste of hard boiled eggs, just use plastic eggs.
I guess I am old fashioned and prefer real eggs. Part of the fun of celebrating Easter was being creative and coloring the eggs. I think kids would still enjoy that. Plus boiled eggs are probably a healthier option to all that candy and chocolate Easter Bunnies, they will most likely get.
