We did several different themed egg hunts, so below I put together a list some are from when I was a kid and some are new ones I can't wait to do with my kids.
1. Alphabet Egg Hunt:
Write the upper and lower case letter on the eggs and then hide mix matched eggs and see who has the most matches after the eggs are found.
Example: place A and g together and see if they find the lower case a and upper case G.
2. Inside Egg Hunt:
Hide eggs in the house and the kids find them.
This was one of the best memories I had at Easter when I was a kid my brother and I finding Easter eggs hidden in the house Easter morning.
3. Night time Egg Hunt:
Kids need to have adults with them and do it in a safe place. Grab a flash light and go on a hunt to find the eggs under the moon and stars. Place glow sticks in the eggs
4. Treasure Egg Hunt:
Decorate the area like you are on an island and make a treasure map then let the kids go and find treasure. You can hide coins and dollars in the eggs. Dollar Tree has fun tropical decorations for this event.
5. Hide the Easter basket Egg Hunt:
Hide the kids Easter basket and set clues in the eggs for them to find the basket.
6. Secret Egg Hunt:
Place messages in the eggs for big prizes. Examples like trip to ice cream shop, play putt putt golf, go bowling and favorite place to eat.
7. Name Egg Hunt:
Write the kids names on the eggs and who ever finds their name first wins a special prize.
8. Math Egg Hunt:
Place numbers in each egg and the person with the highest number after adding them all up wins an extra little prize.
9. Easter Egg Bath Hunt:
Place plastics grass in the bath tub and eggs under it with toys and have them find all the eggs in the bath or this year we hide the eggs under bubbles and that was a BIG hit cause my kids really didn't like the feel of the plastic grass last year.
10. Golden and Sliver Egg Hunt:
Place a golden and a silver egg in a hard to find spot with money in it.
We did this as kids at my Nana's house and it was so much fun.
