Going on an Easter egg hunt

by Brie I have fond memories of hunting for eggs on Easter morning. I was pretty sure my kids would like it too. One year I decided that instead of hiding little chocolate eggs or presents around the house, I would take the hunt outside and make a party of it!

I invited friends and neighbours to join us at our local park the Saturday morning before Easter. We had snacks and treats, but the real highlight was sending the kids on a hunt for plastic eggs hidden throughout the park. The eggs were filled with stickers that the kids could then sit down and use to decorate construction paper, along with some crayons we brought.

The Easter egg hunt can be made as easy or as hard as you'd like. The eggs can be hidden low to the ground for younger kids or tucked up high into branches or play structures for the older kids.

We had a great time with our Easter egg hunt. It was a fun way to get everyone together and kick off park season. If you have a big enough backyard you could try an outside Easter egg hunt there too!

Does your family have an egg hunt at Easter?
