How to Organize an Easter Egg Hunt For Toddlers
Make It Indoor/Outdoor Friendly
You never know what the weather will be like for your Easter egg hunt so always have a plan for an indoor/outdoor friendly egg hunt. This will allow you to enjoy the excitement of hiding eggs for the Easter egg hunt come rain or shine.
Use Plastic or Wooden Eggs
Some families do hide hard-boiled eggs, but thatâ€™s a stinky process. I say use eco-friendly plastic or wooden eggs filled with goodies for kids during your Easter egg hunt. You can buy these options for eggs in bulk online or at your local craft retail shop.

Make it Easy
When youâ€™re organizing an Easter egg hunt for toddlers, itâ€™s best to make it easy. You wonâ€™t want to hide Easter eggs filled with goodies high up where your little ones canâ€™t reach. Try to make the Easter egg hunt competitive with a side of easy so that your toddler is encouraged to continue searching.
Set Ground Rules
If you have more than one kid, you may want to set some ground rules. Since youâ€™re trying to organize an Easter egg hunt for toddlers, but may have older siblings try to encourage them to not find all of the eggs. This will encourage each of your kids to play by ground rules making this a fun experience for all.
Remember Where the Eggs Are
When it comes to organizing an Easter egg hunt for toddlers itâ€™s all about remembering where you hid the eggs, for those that go missing, and how many eggs were hidden overall. I donâ€™t know how many times Iâ€™ve hosted an Easter egg hunt only to be finding those little plastic Easter eggs all over my yard throughout the year.
How many Easter eggs do you hide per child?
Now that Iâ€™ve gone over some of the best tips to organize an Easter egg hunt for toddlers, itâ€™s important to know how many Easter eggs you should hide per child. The general rule of thumb for this is that youâ€™ll want to hide about 15-20 Easter eggs per child.
If youâ€™re going to have some older kids hunting for eggs with your toddlers, then you may want to add a few extra Easter eggs per child. Remember that the more eggs you hide for your Easter egg hunt with toddlers means the longer your children will be searching for eggs during this Easter event. Be sure to hide enough eggs to make the hunt fun, all the while not holding you up from the other Easter day events you may have planned.
