Easter Egg Hunt Tips and Tricks

Tips and Tricks

The Easter egg hunt is a much-loved tradition that most kids (and even some adults) can’t wait to take part in. This holiday, why not add a twist to your traditional egg-sploration? We’ve got LUSHious treats to fill those baskets, as well as a few egg-citing Easter hunt ideas that all your little bunnies are sure to love. Let’s get crackin’!

Take it outside
Head outdoors for your Easter scavenger hunt. It might seem like a simple thing, but expanding your hunting area and exploring the great outdoors for hidden treasure will be even more egg-citing than an indoor hunt. Get the family dog involved in all the fun and hide treats for him, too. Safety tip: Mark a perimeter for your hunting area to be sure that everyone stays safely within bounds.Easter Egg Hunt Outdoors

Choose a theme
Let your imagination run wild and pick a theme for your Easter egg hunt. Ask everyone to wear only red, a crazy hat or come dressed in a pirate costume. Decorate your space to match and create themed treasures, snacks and maps to lead your little hunters to treats.

Fun and games
Turn your Easter egg hunt into a games-filled afternoon! Play games like the egg and spoon race (Immaculate Eggception and Fluffy Egg are perfect for this!), three-legged race, tug-of-war, tag and more. After each game, award egg-citing treats to the winning team or give out prizes to all the kids to fill their Easter baskets.Easter egg race

Lead the way
Grab some different colored ribbons and lead your treasure hunters on a wild hunt. Tie one end of your ribbon to a secure spot and weave your way down, around and through everything you can. Do this with as many colors as there are kids and they’ll be laughing and getting tangled up as they try to follow their ribbon to their special treasure. Leave some treats to find along the way like a Bunch of Carrots or Bunny Bubble Bar as they make their way to the big prize at the end.
