Hippity Hoppity the Easter Bunny is on his way! And it’s the perfect time for some fun Easter activities at home! Here are some ideas for a creative indoor Easter Egg Hunt.
Put clues inside plastic eggs, with each clue leading to the next egg – and finally, to the grand prize Easter basket.
For hunts with several kids, use buckets in the child’s favorite color and have them find and collect colored eggs that match up.
Hold an egg hunt at night, using flashlights and glow-in-the-dark eggs or glow sticks.
String a ball of yarn around the house, with the Easter basket at the end of the trail. Place colorful stickers, magnets and candy throughout to keep kids on the hunt.
Stick little messages inside plastic eggs telling your child to do something fun – hopping like a bunny or singing a song – while searching for the next egg.
Paint an old puzzle in Easter colors and write clues to the location of the Easter basket. Put one puzzle piece in each hidden plastic egg. Once the clues have been put together, your child will know where to find their basket.
Make a trail of jellybeans that leads to hidden eggs and prizes.
Using a blindfold, guide your child to hidden eggs using “getting warmer” or “getting colder” verbal cues.
For a fun prize idea, insert coupons like “stay up past bedtime” or “favorite dinner night.”
“Easter Money” Hunt
Make “Easter Money” to place inside plastic eggs. After all eggs are found, your child can use the Easter money to trade for candy, toys, and fun privileges.
