How to Plan the Perfect Easter Egg Hunt at Home
When it comes to planning an Easter egg hunt at home, there are two fundamental rules to follow – don’t be stingy… and have lots and lots of fun!
Easter is a time of celebration, but being the adult responsible for spreading the joy can be daunting, particularly if it’s your first time hosting. If you’re searching for alternative ideas for your Easter egg hunt this year, you’ve come to the right place.
In this blog, we discuss our top tips and tricks for planning and executing the perfect Easter egg hunt at home that no one will forget in a hurry. Want to find out more? Keep reading!
Setting Up a Fun-Filled Easter Egg Hunt | What Do I Need?
A Spacious Location
Whether you’re hosting an Easter egg hunt at home, in your back garden or at the local park, our easy, fun-filled DIY Easter egg hunt ideas can ensure that your event caters to all, no matter how big or small your clan may be.
Treats, Treats & More Treats!
As a general rule of thumb, when it comes to setting up an Easter egg hunt, more is more. After all, the last thing you want is your group of explorers coming back to you in 5 minutes with nothing but one tiny plastic egg in each of their baskets. To make sure your hunt facilitates hours of fun, make sure your home, garden or public space is filled to the brim with hidden treats.
Top Tip: Remember, the hunt doesn’t end until the final egg is found. So, to avoid any delays in announcing a winner, make sure you count the eggs before you hide them!
Your Best Riddles
Now, here comes the hardest part – writing the clues. At Piglet’s Pantry, we’re not going to pretend to be experts at writing rhymes… however, we can provide some tasty snacks for the adults to devour over an evening of putting pen to paper.
From scrumptious Easter Egg Cupcakes to tangy Easter Egg Lemon Curd Shortbread, we can provide the perfect sweet treat to get those creative juices flowing! To secure your next order, simply use the navigation on our site.
Personalised Easter Egg Hunt Baskets
Now, if you really want to elevate this year’s Easter shenanigans, why not create some stunning personalised Easter egg hunt baskets for your group of bunnies?
Regardless of your crafting abilities, creating the perfect personalised basket doesn’t have to see you sacrificing ample time and money. All you’ll need to create these unique keepsakes is some acrylic paint and wooden baskets. Simply tell your detectives to paint vertical strips around the basket using their favourite pastel colours and get searching!
Now, here comes the most important part – prizes for the winners! Depending on how kind you’re feeling, you can offer a prize to everyone taking part, or just the most talented scavenger.
Our Spring Cupcake Selection is the perfect prize for a victorious sweet-treat lover. Featuring six beautifully decorated spring-inspired cupcakes, this mouthwatering collection of stunning cakes is sure to please the masses.
Alternative Easter Egg Hunt Ideas
So, we’ve got the basic components of an Easter egg hunt- now it’s time to make it your own. At Piglet’s Pantry, we love adding a unique touch to every occasion, and an Easter egg hunt is no different!
Golden Egg Hunt
Do you want to take your Easter Egg hunt to a whole new level?
Before you begin the festivities, sit your participants down and explain to them that there is one golden egg hidden among the rest. The person who finds the golden egg will receive a special prize.
You might choose to hide the golden egg in a more tricky location, or disguise it as something else so it’s harder to spot. Adding an extra layer of excitement to your Easter Egg hunt is sure to boost enjoyment for everyone involved, no matter how young or old!
Colour-Coded Scavenger Hunt
If you’re a sucker for organisation and are attempting to plan an Easter egg hunt at home, a colour-coded scavenger hunt is the perfect alternative for you.
All you need to do is assign different colours to each participant and have them only collect eggs that are that colour. The person to collect all of their designated colour first is the winner.
You could make it even harder by encouraging participants to sabotage their opponents’ chances of winning, hiding their eggs in trickier locations if they spot them along the way!
