Looking to throw the Easter Egg Hunt event of the year? Take a look at these unique suggestions for activities, snacks, and decorations that will help bring your Easter event to the next level.
Put together an area that acts as the center of festivities. Set up a small stage, blast fun, energetic music, and decorate with colorful streamers, crepe paper, and balloons. This is a great area to announce the beginning of the Easter egg hunt, the location of the food, any rules, and the winners.
A craft station is especially helpful for parents with little ones! Provide paper bunny ears for children to color and wear, or paper Easter eggs that can be doodled on and used as tree ornaments for the day. A craft station is also a great place for children to decorate their own Easter eggs. Offer a few unique additions to standard dyes such as white crayons, Kool-aid, Mod Podge, stickers or sparkles, and glue. You can also ask participants to bring old egg cartons for children to draw on.
A contest doesn’t have to consist solely of ‘Best Easter Bunny Outfit.’ Incorporate a variety of categories, such as ‘Funniest Easter T-Shirt’ and ‘Best Face Paint.’ Don’t forget to supply a few fun props for those who didn’t dress up but still want to get in the spirit!
There’s a wide variety of Easter-inspired snacks. Try these Jell-O Easter eggs or these Rice Krispy Easter egg treats that have a hidden surprise. Throw in Cadbury Eggs with Muddy Buddies for a colorful twist on a classic snack, or cover strawberries in orange chocolate to make them look like little carrots.
Give a Variety of Prizes
This is a great opportunity to reiterate that the hunt is about fun, not about which child found the greatest number of eggs! Hide a few ‘golden eggs’ that hold special prizes, or even a clue to find a special prize that takes them on a treasure hunt. Reward the child who found the egg in the “sneakiest hiding spot,” and give a prize to the child who found the least amount of eggs as well. Encourage sharing and kindness by searching for a child who gave eggs to someone who didn’t find as many, and give them a special prize in private such as extra snacks or a chocolate bunny.
