Keep the little ones entertained as they search for delectable Easter goodies
Our BoyZ were born within a period of three and a half years needless to say: life has been more, than a welcome handful ever since. Its great that they are so close in age and have always enjoyed time spent outside together. All of them ree that Easter is their favourite holiday. Not only because of the massive amount of chocolate they get to eat, and lunch is always a big family affair. What I think they like the most, even now in their teenage years is the Easter egg hunt.
Is there a more magical Autumn holiday than Easter? The little ones are sure to appreciate all the chocolate treats the Easter Bunny has left. From Squeaky Duck to a Standing Duck in an Eggshell, he’s set to make Easter Sunday the best one yet. Why not add an extra element of fun by organising an Easter egg hunt for the children to enjoy.
Don’t forget to hide a little something for yourself, too…
Setting up an Easter egg hunt. An Easter egg hunt is a fairly simple activity — hide some chocolate goodies for the kids to find and you’ll be good to go. However, here are some tips to help make sure it runs as smoothly as possible.
Indoors or outdoors?
The first thing to consider is where you want to host your Easter egg hunt. If the forecast is looking good, you could set up the trail in your garden. Or, if you don’t have an outside space at home, you could gather some other family friends and all head to your local park.
Of course, there’s inevitably the chance of some rain! But that’s okay, you can create a delightful Easter egg hunt inside, too — either in one room or throughout the house. Indoors, you can make it as easy or challenging as you like.
Planned route, or random forage?
The next aspect to consider is whether you’ll create clues that lead the kids to each Easter egg or dot the treats here and there for them to find.
If you want to plan a route, you can get creative and come up with hints to suit the age group of your children. You can keep it straightforward for the little ones, with clues such as “where we eat dinner” (the dining room table, for example). For older children, you can make the clues more complex and even write your own riddles. With this extra element, the whole family can enjoy a sense of achievement as well as some seasonal snacks.
Give them one clue to start, then hide one by each Easter egg. You might find it helpful to number each clue so everyone knows when they’ve all been found.
