How to create the perfect Easter Egg Hunt at home!
 
What could be more fun than eating Easter Eggs? Finding them, of course!
 
This is a great activity to keep the little ones entertained and creating an Easter egg hunt in your own home couldn’t be easier – all you need is a little planning, and some delicious chocolate…
 
Here are some of our top tips:
 
1) Start by getting the kids excited for your Easter egg hunt and let them get creative the day before by designing some signage and clues.
If you need some inspiration we have designed some signs below that you can take a look at, or if you would prefer just download ours and stick them up around the house!
 
2) Give the little ones a distraction whilst you hide the eggs around the house and garden, or better yet, hide your goodies whilst they are sleeping!
If you are hiding chocolate in the garden we recommend doing this the day of the hunt to stop any animals helping themselves to your goods!
(If you don’t have a garden, just get a little more creative inside and find a few inventive places to stash the treasures)!
 
3) If your children are older, or you don’t want to miss out on the fun, why not create the ultimate adult Easter egg hunt?
 Just increase the difficulty, find some simple places and some where you would never think to look!
 
4) The little ones will need somewhere to put the eggs they find…so grab a basket or reusable bag for them to collect their prizes in 
 
5) If you want to make it more competitive, time your Easter egg hunt to make it even more exciting!
 
6) Lastly, when the time is up, or all Easter eggs have been found, get everyone to bring their baskets back to base
 
7) Count the Easter eggs in each basket to see who found the most…
The winner can then be rewarded with a special prize, we’ll leave that part up to you!
To avoid clandestine egg-scoffing and sibling squabbles, once all eggs have been counted share them out equally between each child
 
We hope you enjoy!
