Easter Egg Hunt Ideas

I love to have Easter egg hunts in the yard for my son each year.  We used to go to the big egg hunts with hundreds of kids, lots of activities, crafts, and prizes.  It was always fun to go and watch the little ones carry their baskets that were too big for them to hold as they walked past 10 eggs to reach the only one they had their eye on.  My son outgrew those kind of hunts a couple of years ago but he still wants to hunt for his own eggs.  So I still hide them.  We like to use the eggs we colored each year and it is a little more difficult to find these which makes it a little more fun!

This year, we are hosting an egg hunt for our friends and I found the CUTEST signs to place around the yard!  I just adore this green arrow chalkboard sign I picked up at Swoozie’s!  It is perfect to lead the way and I can use it again for many more celebrations to come!  Just wipe it clean and write again.  I can see using it to point the way to a “Photo Booth” or where the “Drinks” are or even which way to the “Restrooms”.  And how cute would it be to have these at a garden wedding to lead your guests to your ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception?  The ideas just keep flowing but for now, it is perfect for our “Egg Hunt”.

We always like to make sure our guests stay hydrated, so I created these cute Hoppy Easter water labels and piled them in a vintage rabbit Easter pail that I found at Swoozie’s!  I really adore anything that looks vintage.  This is actually a great Easter basket for my son.  Somehow the toys the Easter Bunny leaves get bigger each year he gets older, so it’s time to upgrade the basket.

And for clues around the yard, I found this ultra-cute Egg Hunt Kit from World Market!  The illustrations have a vintage feel and the colors are so fresh & vibrant.  I love that each sign is small enough to be discreet but colorful enough that when spotted, you know you are close!   So much cuteness!

All of the eggs have been found!  Now it’s time to hide the “Hard to Find” eggs…this should be a little more challenging for the older kids.  They look like rocks, grass, wood, and other things you find in your yard.  I definitely need to keep count so we’ll know when we find them all!
