Top Tips for Planning an Easter Hunt

Date: 13 Apr 2017

The first bank holiday of the year is for Easter; find out why we celebrate Easter in the UK by clicking here.

With the forecast looking dry across the country (touch wood!) why not plan an Easter egg hunt for the family to take part in?

Here are some top tips of how to plan an eggtastic Easter egg hunt!


Dependent on your garden size, you may want to have the hunt at home, or go to a local park.

Remember, if you do go to a park, there may be others doing a hunt – so try not to pinch anyone else’s eggs!

Clues for the hunt

Make sure you set clues appropriate to the age of the children on your hunt. Also, when hiding the eggs for toddlers, hide the eggs where they can easily see and reach – as they will do anything to get their hands on the chocolate!!

Note where you hide the eggs

You don’t want to hide your eggs so well that you don’t find them all! Make a note of each location, so if the children cant find them all, at least you can.

What to hide

Chocolate eggs are the obvious, but to reduce some of the chocolate intake over the Easter weekend, some other prize hunt ideas are:

  • Playdough

  • Sticker book

  • Bubbles

  • Cinema ticket

  • Jigsaw puzzles

  • Toy cars

  • Soft toy

  • Fruit
