One of a Kind Gifts: 15 Easter Egg Hunt Ideas

I love the math hunt idea! Thanks for those. I always hide the kids baskets and they have to find them but this year I am going to do a scavenger hunt- I like the idea of putting the clues in the eggs too!

I was going to post about egg hunt ideas this year, but decided to bump this post up from last year instead.

 

So far we have done:

 

-  Each kid gets to look for two colors. (This was back when my little brother was still hunting with my dd and nephew.  Now we have too many eggs that are different designs to make this work for dd and my two nephews.)

 

-  Poem like clues for each kid to find his/her surprise from g'ma.

 

-  Treasure map pieces hidden in some of the eggs, and dd and nephew had to work together putting the map together and finding their prize.  My oldest brother figured out where it was and went and hid it again and left another note while they were out following the map.  (The little sneak.)  But the kids thought that was just hilarious.

 

-  A couple of years ago, I put all these ridiculous things they had to do in order to earn their prize, like knock on a neighbor's door and tell them, "Happy Easter", make up a dance to "Here Comes Peter Cottontail", pretend to lay an egg, give their new baby cousin (who still happened to be in sil's belly) a kiss, etc. 

 

Looking for something new this year.  I'd love to do the nighttime glow in the dark hunt, but this is the first year my littlest nephew will be able to hunt, and that will be too complicated for him.  Any ideas???  I thought about making the kids look up Bible verses or something, and brother or sil will just have to help little nephew.  Any other ideas would be helpful, too!

I saw this week where the Easter Bunny brought plastic eggs with puzzle pieces in them (that the parent had made).  When they collected all the eggs, they put the pieces together to give them a clue to where their baskets were hidden that year.  I thought that was a cool idea!

That's kind of what my husband did when he proposed (it was around Easter time)

I love the treasure hunt one too with clues to the next egg.  I think I might just hide some eggs around my house though, since the girls are too young to understand the clues.
