Easter Egg Hunt Alternatives
Take the traditional Easter egg hunt up a notch this year. Get creative and go beyond simply hiding and finding painted or plastic eggs. What can you do to make this holiday activity even more fun for your kids? Take a look at these imaginative egg hunt alternatives.
Dinosaur Eggs: Turn your Easter eggs into the dino version. Use paper mache to cover balloons, crafting over-sized eggs that your child can paint. Hide the dinosaur eggs around the yard for the holiday hunt.
Buried Treasure: Your kiddo can play the role of a pirate, searching for buried treasure. Make a map, bury plastic Easter eggs in a sand box (or in a small area of the yard) and let your child explore until they find them all.
Egg Race: Set an egg timer (going with the egg theme) and have a race to see who can get the most eggs.
Numbered Order: Dye eggs with numbers on them — starting with one and going up as high as you want. You can have the kids draw the numbers with white wax crayons and then dip dye them. The dye won’t stick to the wax. When they’re dry, hide the eggs. The kids need to find them in numbered order.
