Hosting an egg hunt over the Easter weekend? Here are our top tips for happy hunting.
Plan ahead: Consider how many children are taking part and the age range of your egg hunters. Older children might like the challenge of clues, or hide lots of eggs in a variety of places if you have a mixed age group. Don't forget to jot down where you've hidden your eggs, in case any prove particularly tricky to find.
Stay dry: The great British weather is unpredictable at best, so have a back up plan for an indoors egg hunt just in case. Move any breakables into one room and avoid hiding eggs inside priceless family heirlooms!
Stock up: The last thing you want is an egg hunt that's over too soon! Our Easter egg tray is packed full of 30 colourful foil-wrapped eggs to help the fun last longer, and you could even assign each child a colour to keep the egg hunt fair. Painted boiled eggs are also great to hide if there's already a lot of chocolate to come – these can then be turned into sandwiches for an Easter tea.
Decorate: Set the scene with some Easter accessories, such as our Easter bunny bunting, and give all the hunters a colourful Easter basket to stash their eggs – or use our guide to make your own paper nest. Our Easter egg hunt kits contain colourful markers to guide your little ones through the garden.
