Follow this guide to organising a successful Easter egg hunt:

Select your hunting boundaries: Choose a location for your Easter egg hunt and make sure to consider factors like weather, accessibility, and the size of the area needed for hiding eggs.

Gather Supplies: Collect all the necessary supplies, including plastic eggs which you can reuse every year, treats or prizes to fill them, baskets for collecting eggs, and any decorations or signage you may want to use.


Variety in Eggs: Hide eggs of different sizes and colours to keep the hunt exciting. You can even include some special eggs with clues leading to hidden treasures or larger prizes.

Create Challenges: Incorporate fun challenges or riddles to add an extra layer of entertainment and engagement.

Hide the Eggs: Prior to the event, hide the eggs in various locations around the designated area. Be sure to consider the age range of participants and hide eggs in both easy and challenging spots accordingly.

Establish Rules: Set clear rules for the Easter egg hunt, including start and end times, boundaries for the hunting area, and any special instructions, such as not running or pushing.

Start the Hunt: Once everyone is ready, officially start the Easter egg hunt. You can signal the beginning with a countdown, a whistle blow, or by shouting "Go!" Encourage participants to search high and low for hidden eggs.

Monitor the Hunt: Throughout the event, supervise the egg hunt to ensure everyone is safe and following the rules. Offer assistance to younger children or those who may need help finding eggs.

Conclude the Hunt: After a designated amount of time, announce the end of the egg hunt. Gather all participants together and congratulate them on their egg-hunting efforts.
