Easter is nearly here and your kids are already looking forward to the weekend! Are you looking for something more exciting than your traditional Easter egg hunt? Maybe everyone’s gotten used to the set of activities, or lack thereof, and you want to re-spark that joy and wonder. We’ve got a few creative Easter egg hunt ideas that will start a new family tradition to keep your kids on their toes!
Easter Egg Tag
This is a great one for families that range from toddlers to teens. Designate a family member to wear the egg hunt goodies on a brightly coloured shirt and then start the chase! Everyone will get a kick out of chasing down their goodies and it gets everyone up and moving around. The best part is, you can change it up every year so someone new always gets the opportunity to evade the hunters.
Easter Egg Activity Skills
This is another Easter egg challenge that will get everyone up and active. Make your hunt interactive by filling some eggs with activities and instructions for simple exercises. Things like somersaulting, jumping jacks, singing, and even making animal noises, can be traded in for bigger hidden prizes they didn’t know about. The best part is this will exercise not only their bodies but their minds as well … and work off all that sugar-induced energy!
Easter Egg Poppers
Who said Christmas was the only holiday that should get poppers! Follow these DIY instructions and put a new spin on this holiday tradition. Hang these up and have your kids go crazy as they pull and pop these little treats, gathering candy as they go. This is also a great idea for kids who may feel they’re “too cool” to go Easter egg hunting with their younger siblings.
Make Easter Bunny Tracks
Nothing will capture the imagination of your young toddlers more than following around big bunny tracks to find their hidden treats. Use water-soluble paints and little tufts of cotton to track out the course for the hunt and watch as they explore the scene. As a big plus, this means your children get to take on a lot more responsibility themselves when looking as they already have big hints.
We hope these ideas gave you some ideas to really boost your Easter egg hunt this year. Whatever you get up to during this holiday, just be sure to have fun and enjoy your family time. From all of us at Falconcrest Homes, have a happy and safe Easter!
