We have all had the traditional. You put candy in the plastic egg and hide them around and the kids go wild and find the eggs. We love this one it is easy and fast to get this one together.
This one is super fun. You take the traditional plastic eggs and put tiny glow sticks in them and hide them around the yard. You can find the little glow sticks at your local dollar store. Add the candy for extra fun.
We always hide the hard boiled and colored eggs. The Easter bunny hides them for the kids on that morning. They love that the Easter Bunny Hides the Eggs that they Dyed.
We have 10 grandkids in my family so we had to make it even for them to find their eggs. We give them each a color and that is the only color that they can find. This makes it easier for my parents who buy the kids a big treat as well. They can just color code them to match their color. Then nobody fights over how many they have and if someone got more.
We got tired of the usual egg hunt one year and wanted to give the kids more than just candy, so we created the egg Scavenger hunt. We hid clues everywhere to lead them to their big gift. We started with giving them the first clue. Then they had to take turns reading and finding the clues till they found their big gift. It was so fun and took a little more time that the run around like crazy hunt.
This one is not my favorite, but I get the necessity. We have all been there trying to avoid the processed food and the sugar. So we did a Healthy fill on the eggs. We put in Grapes, or dried fruit in the eggs, we have also added nuts and trail mix. This was not a big hit with the kids, but it was healthier for them.
Again we were trying to be healthier and not get the kids “hopped” up on sugar. So we filled the eggs with all that loose change hanging around the house. It was fun to hear all the money rattling around when they found the eggs. They thought that they were rich when we were done.
I am big on Family traditions and getting out into the sunshine. I know that there are lots of hunts out there. We would love to hear all about yours. We hope that you have a great Easter and that you get out and enjoy the little ones. Happy Hunting.
