How to Have a Backyard Easter Egg Hunt
If you’re not able to go out for an Easter egg hunt this year, you can do one yourself at home. In fact, a lot of families do this in addition to a formal Easter Egg Hunt because they have more control over it, it allows smaller children to get a fair shot, and it can be great fun for all of the family.
Here’s how to have a backyard Easter egg hunt:
- Know how many children with be participating. Before you can properly prepare for your Easter egg hunt, you need to know how many children are going to be there so you can make it fun for everyone.
- Buy or make your eggs. Buying plastic eggs is a great option because you can fill them with candy or treats, you save the time of cooking and decorating and there is no mess to clean up. Once you have your eggs, you need to prepare them for hiding, then work out a plan to where you will hide the eggs. You want good hiding spots but you also want it to be safe so avoid any dangerous areas or objects.
- Hide your eggs. If you’re going to have both young and old children participating, consider making zones so you can hide the eggs based on the age groups. You want the younger children to have a chance to get eggs and you want it to feel like more of a challenge for the older ones as well.
With these simple steps, you can have your own Easter egg hunt in your backyard. It’s fun, it’s easy, and everyone will make memories to last a long time.
