Get to Know the Hunters

An Easter egg hunt is great for kids of all ages. However, before you start planning, you need to know who will be hunting. For example, if it is only young kids, then the eggs should be easy to find. However, for older kids, making it more difficult is part of the fun. If you have teens or adults who want to hunt, too, make sure to find some obscure or high hiding places – after all – that’s all part of the fun.

Ask for Help

Regardless of how big or small your Easter egg hunt is, you won’t be able to handle everything alone. Make sure you ask for help. You can ask other parents or friends to help you get ready for the hunt.

Create Areas for Each Age Group

Before you start hiding the eggs, you need to set up a boundary for where the eggs are going to be hidden. If you are planning an outside hunt, you may want to use a fence as a boundary for young kids and anything beyond the fence is for older kids. This is a great way to ensure that the hunt is fair for everyone.

Use Color Codes

If you don’t have physical boundaries to use, consider a color coding system. You can choose a color of Easter egg for each age group. This is just another way to ensure the hunt is fair for everyone.

Hide “Prize” Eggs

Enhance the fun by hiding a few “prize” eggs for each age group. These could include money or some other type of exciting prize.

As you can see, there are several ways you can make an Easter egg hunt fun, organized and easy. With the tips here, you are well on your way to creating a hunt that won’t soon be forgotten.
