Easter time has got to be my favourite holiday, you can eat an unlimited amount of chocolate and all things sweet, an excuse to dress in pastel and bright colours, the days suddenly appear brighter and longer and there’s a great desire to spend more time outdoors.
The most memorable part of Easter holidays as a child has got to be Easter egg hunts, running around looking for chocolate what’s not to love!
Top tips for hosting your own cracking egg hunt,
- Stock up on chocolate eggs
- Fill fillable Easter eggs with sweets and small toys
- Hide 7 – 10 eggs per person
- Don’t give the hiding spots away but use signs to point them in the right direction
- Not too easy and not too hard
- Keep track of the eggs
Extend Easter beyond the egg hunt if you think an Easter Egg hunt is over too quickly use the rest of the Easter weekend to engage in fun Easter themed activities.
