EASTER EGG HUNT IDEAS WITH A TWIST
On slips of paper, create special reward coupons to be redeemed—
like, stay up 15 minutes later, skip a chore for a day, or get an extra
Tricks for Treats
Include a task or trick to complete to receive a candy treat—complete
a handstand, sing an Itsy-Bitsy Spider, recite the alphabet backward,
name five state capitals, dance like your dad, act like your mom, tell a
joke, hop like a bunny. If there is a large age difference, egg hunters can
be assigned to a specific color, so their task is age-appropriate.
Have your kiddos write the rewards they want (within reason) and place
them in each egg. Let the kids hide the eggs for the parents to find in a
given amount of time. The kids get to keep and redeem any unfound eggs!
Each egg can direct them with clues to the next hidden egg. At the end
of the hunt, they will find their Easter basket of treasure!
Egg Relay Race
One kiddo goes to find a hidden egg. Once one egg is found,
they run back to the next person who hunts for an egg.
They win when their team has found all of the eggs.
(Remember to count the number hidden!)
Glow in the Dark
Add a glow stick or a battery-operated tea light inside your
plastic egg and hide at night! You may need to fold your
glow stick to fit in the egg with candy. Use a little tape
to secure closed if needed.
Easter Treat Tag
Create a treat t-shirt for an older teen or parent to
wear. Hot glue or use strong tape to adhere a mix of
plastic eggs filled with candy, candy bars, snack bags,
or small toys directly to the t-shirt. In an open area, the
kids can snatch off a prize from the shirt to keep, if they
can catch the person! Make sure to attach treats low
around the hem for little kiddos to reach and make sure
they get an opportunity too.
