Easter Egg Hunts

One of the funnest parts of Easter is hunting for little eggs hidden in the tall Spring grass. We have lots of egg hunting around here. Here are some of the ways that we have done it:

Put little candies or coins in the eggs and tell the kids that they can find a certain amount of eggs:

Assign each kid a color. They can only find that color of egg:

One year we put little clues in each egg. The clues led to their Easter baskets which were hidden in the laundry room:

Put pennies, nickles, dimes, quarters, and dollars in eggs. Put the filled eggs on a table. Have kids sit around the table and take turns opening the eggs. Our kids used a wooden spoon to touch the egg that they wanted then they had to open the one they touched. They loved trying to find the dollar eggs and counting their loot once the eggs were gone:

Or, you can go all out like my "egg"xtraordinary Grandma and hide presents instead of eggs. She wraps the presents in different colors/patterns of wrapping paper then gives each child a square of wrapping paper. All of his/ her presents will be wrapped with that kind of paper:

"Hoppy" Hunting!
