Do you remember the excitement of hunting for chocolate eggs on Easter when you were a child?
Now that you have a family of your own you can create an Easter egg hunt for your little ones so that they can enjoy searching for hidden treats.
Here are some tips on how to create the best Easter egg hunt ever:
Part of the fun of the egg hunt is in believing that the eggs have been left by the mysterious Easter Bunny. You can add to the illusion and create a magical feeling on Easter by leaving “evidence” behind of the bunny’s presence.
For example, your children can leave carrots out the night before, which will have been nibbled on the next day.
The More the Merrier
If you want, invite a few of the neighborhood children over and create a larger egg hunt with the other parents. This way you can share the work of setting up and the kids will have friends to play with.
You can also organize Easter related games and activities for the little ones to enjoy.
Make it Fair
Nothing ruins an Easter egg hunt more than siblings squabbling over their chocolate. You want to make sure that the eggs are divided evenly and that no one feels left out.
You can keep the peace by letting your children know that the eggs will be divided evenly at the end no matter how many they find, taking the competitive edge out of it.
You can also give younger kids a head start and make some hiding spots higher up and trickier for older ones.
Think Outside the Egg
You don’t have to hide just chocolate eggs on Easter. Be creative and think of other prizes that you can hide, such as teddy bears, stickers, small toys and more.
These other treats will be just as exciting for your little ones to find and it will mean that they get less sugar-high from overloading on candy!
Have a fun Easter and enjoy hosting your Easter egg hunt with your children.
