5 tips for an amazing Easter egg hunt

Now you have some ready-made Easter riddles, here are a few pointers on how you can make this Easter’s celebrations the best yet. 

Stock up early

Shops will start to stock Easter eggs around early February time, so keep an eye out for deals. You’ll do yourself a favour by buying early - that way it won’t be a mad (and expensive) rush come Easter weekend.

Limit the hunt to a safe and contained area

Designate a specific area for your hunt. Your home is good enough! Make use of its nooks and crannies - just remember where you’ve hidden them.

Have a special egg

Make it known that somewhere there is a ‘special egg’. Maybe it’s much bigger than the others, or there are extra eggs inside it. Whatever it is, make sure that your kids are excited about this bonus prize. Exciting!

Hide appropriately

Think about the ages of the kids involved and hide according to their age. You can’t expect a group of four-year-olds to reach up high while hiding them in plain sight will be far too easy for the older ones.

Colour coding is vital

To keep it fair, colour code the eggs and tell the kids of varying ages to hunt for the colours that match their abilities. You’ll avoid lots of potential tears!

Happy hunting
