Easter is a holiday that many families celebrate, and one way to make it fun for children (and adults) is to host an Easter egg hunt. While the basics of hosting such an event are pretty simple, here are some tips that can help improve your hunting experience:
Put eggs in hard to find places
People like Easter egg hunts because they like the thrill of searching for eggs. Putting eggs in hard-to-find places can make the game more exciting, but there are some things to consider when doing so …
Before you start hunting for eggs, make sure that nobody in your family or group of friends will be at risk if someone falls.
Don’t make the game too long
Hunting for eggs can be great fun, but if you make the game last too long it can also become boring. Be sure that each person has enough time to find the eggs they need to find, and that nobody will get tired of searching.
If there are multiple people at your Easter egg hunt, make sure that everyone follows the same rules and gets the same number of chances to find eggs. It can be tempting to let a child win for example, but if you do this every time it will take away from the fun and excitement in finding the eggs themselves.
Make it more than just an Easter Egg Hunt
Easter is about so much more than just hunting for eggs, and if you want to make your event special then try adding some other activities into the mix. For example:
Decorate Easter baskets
Before guests arrive at your Easter egg hunt, decorate their baskets with bows and ribbons. This will add a nice touch and help guests feel festive.
Easter is often considered to be a Christian holiday, so if you want to make your event more meaningful then gather the guests together for some worship music or prayer. This can set the stage for a great Easter egg hunt experience.
Visit an attraction
Rather than hosting the event in your own backyard, consider hosting it at an attraction. Many Easter events are held in places like amusement parks or zoos, so your guests can take advantage of the fun while you host the event.
Have a winner
If there’s one thing everyone loves more than finding eggs, it’s winning things! Consider putting together a prize basket and having somebody announce the winners at the end of your event.
Don’t feel like you have to follow all these tips or that they are mutually exclusive, think about how you can combine them to make your Easter egg hunt truly special!
