With Easter just around the corner many parents are starting to plan fun filled Easter Egg hunts for their children. Now, I have been doing Easter Egg hunts in my house for 7 years now, and I must admit I am really running out of new places to hide the eggs and ways to make it more fun! So, I have been doing a bit of research into some ways I can spice things up a bit.

Include your children’s favourite toys 

 One really easy way to make an Easter Egg hunt more fun is to use your children’s toys to hide the eggs. For birthday present treasure hunt I will often have toy cars or teddy bears holding presents, so you could do this with Easter eggs too. My children absolutely love having their toys involved.

Themed Treasure Maps

Create a themed treasure map leading to hidden eggs around your house or garden. You can use colourful markers and draw landmarks to make it more exciting. For older children you could always get them to draw maps for their siblings or friends too.

Golden Egg Prize

Hide a special "golden egg" among the other eggs and offer a special prize for whoever finds it. This adds an element of excitement and anticipation to the hunt.

Egg-Decorating Table

Before the hunt, set up a station with plain eggs and decorating supplies like stickers, markers, and paint. After finding eggs, kids can decorate them, adding an extra creative twist to the activity. If you want to make this activity edible you could use icing pens, sprinkles and smarties to decorate your chocolate eggs with.

Bunny Ears Relay

Incorporate a relay race into the egg hunt where children must wear bunny ears and hop to find eggs. This adds a playful challenge and gets them moving. To make this more interesting you can add in more animals for different parts of the race, like having to waddle like a duck or even making the right animal noises.

Egg Swap

After the hunt, allow kids to swap their found eggs for small toys, candies, or other treats. This encourages sharing and ensures everyone ends the hunt with something they love.


These ideas should help make this year's Easter egg hunt a memorable and enjoyable experience for your children!
