Easter Egg Hunt – The festive season of Easter is observed with great religious fervor by Christian community people throughout the several regions of the world. The ceremonious festival is celebrated in the recall of resurrection of Jesus Christ after the crucifixion. In some parts of the world, the day of Easter Sunday is completely dedicated to worship the Almighty where people attend special church services and offer prayers to the God, while on the other hand, the spring festival is a fun-filled occasion for many people to celebrate it with fun and enjoyment.

Easter Egg Hunt Ideas
So I thought I’d throw a couple of fun Ideas for Easter Egg Hunts at you. Ready?
The classic ones are fun, but how about switching things up a bit by doing something like creating a map that leads to the eggs? Make it into a “real” map with all the appropriate markings on it, complete with “X”s, dashes, and an old look to the map. Try and get as accurate as you can with the layout, of course. I’ve found that it’s best to hide the eggs next to landmarks to make it a little easier to find them; otherwise, you’ll end up having to dig holes in the ground!
Another neat idea – I think – is to draw pictures of the places associated with the location of the eggs. For instance, if you hide the egg in a tree, just draw a picture of a branch…or you could even draw a seed! Make them think a little.
The third and final idea – and maybe the most ridiculous – for this instalment involves buying dozens and dozens of eggs and having the day eventually end up in a giant egg fight. Sure, that sounds a little crazy, and when my sister suggested it to me, that’s exactly what I thought. But it can be a lot of fun, and it’s not dangerous as long as you set some ground rules. (Remember, the egg shells are hard, and you never know when a small piece could get into someone’s eye!) Hide the eggs all over the yard, separate the kids into teams, and let them go. When they’re done, split them up and begin the insanity. The rules we had were no face shots and nobody was allowed to throw really hard. If you have kids who will follow the rules, let me tell you, it can be a fun, crazy time.

O.K. guys, I really like this one, and I highly recommend doing it.
This idea first came as a suggestion to me from my brother-in-law. This year for your Easter egg hunt, do something completely different. Create a map. Not enough? Sure, maybe that alone isn’t the most original idea in the world. But how about creating a map out of a blank jigsaw puzzle, having the kids search for the puzzle pieces, and then following said map to the final, ultimate prize?
We first did this last year at home, and it was a major success. I’d say we had about 18 puzzle pieces for approximately six kids to find… so the math CAN work evenly. I’ll tell you what: those kids had so much fun thinking about the eventual full map that they forgot how competitive they like to be. It was fantastic. Usually – as many parents know – when there are at least one boy and one girl around the same age, the competition is ridiculous. The boy simply needs to win or he’s going to be upset. At least that’s how it is around our house!
