Easter Egg Hunt Ideas
Fun Easter Egg Hunts for Families
Interactive Easter Egg Hunt
My sister introduced me to this idea last year and we LOVE it. Fill your eggs with “tasks” that can be done by any member of your family! As you open your eggs you have to perform that task! The tasks can be easy or hard depending on the age range in your family!
Some ideas include:
Hop Like a Bunny
Quack Like a Duck
Do 10 jumping jacks
Sing your alphabet
Count backward from 100
The possibilities are endless!
Puzzle Egg Hunt
This is another fun one that we have enjoyed in our home! Take the pieces of a puzzle and hide them in the Easter Eggs. The kids will know the hunt is done when their puzzle is put together!
Larger families and those with older children can do this together with a large puzzle.
Working with smaller groups or younger children? Consider giving each child a puzzle and color-coding the eggs!
Did you know you could track E.B. from Easter Island right down to Las Vegas and Henderson?
Exercise those Eggs
We all have a little cabin fever right now. Keep the little moving on Easter with a hunt that focuses on moving their body, in all the right ways!
LEGO Egg Hunt
No doubt your kids have asked for some LEGO to fill their Easter baskets or you just need a great reason to give them more to keep their hands and minds busy during quarantine! This is the perfect hunt for LEGO lovers. Hide mini-figures in eggs. Use a small LEGO set and split it up between eggs. Like the puzzle hunt you can choose to do small sets and color code the eggs or do a larger set the family has to find and build together! No matter how you do it, the end result is family fun!
Not feeling the egg hunt but still looking for some Easter games. This scavenger hunt idea from Happiness is Homemade is a great way to engage older kids with a big win at the end.
How to Egg Your Friends
Glow in the dark Easter Egg Hunts have always been a favorite tradition for our boys. I was thrilled when I saw Heather Thoming post this idea on her Instagram!
We will be sharing this festive fun with our friends this year and of course, having our own glow-in-the-dark egg hunt at home too!
We are dropping eggs in a “ding dong ditch” fashion to avoid contact.
Finding what you need for a glow-in-the-dark hunt may be a little tricky this year, but you can still “egg” your friends in other ways! Drop filled eggs at their door or hide them in their yard, but remember, lack of contact is always best practice when egging!
Here are a few of our favorite templates to use when egging!
