Easter egg hunts are a fun and exciting activity that both children and adults can enjoy. They are a popular tradition during the Easter holiday season, and can take place in a variety of settings including backyards, parks, and community centers. Whether it’s food allergies or not wanting the additional sugar in the day, there’s many reasons to not fill your eggs with sugary treats.

Easter Egg Hunt Traditions

To prepare for an Easter egg hunt, it is important to gather a variety of colorful plastic eggs, fill them with small treats or prizes, and hide them in various locations. Participants can then search for the eggs and collect as many as they can.

Growing up my grandparents held the Easter Egg hunt in their backyard for me, my sisters and all my cousins. My Grandma filled the eggs with jelly beans, chocolate bunnies, and coins. There were special eggs that contained $1 bills! Grandpas job was to “hid” the eggs. This meant he’d wedge them into their chicken wire fence, on the bird bath, in low tree limbs, on his grill and cascading their porch stairs. Me and my cousins loved the thrill of running for the eggs and filling our baskets. Maybe even more so than actually opening the eggs and pocketing our prizes.

Make an Easter egg hunt more challenging by adding clues, or by hiding eggs in harder-to-find locations like a scavenger hunt. They can also be themed, such as with a specific color or character theme. Have the prize for the winner be a golden egg filled with a big prize or a gift card. This works well for teens who are still very much into Easter traditions.

Overall, Easter egg hunts are a fun and festive way to celebrate the holiday season and bring people together for a day of adventure and excitement.

Happy Easter Egg Hunting!
