Fun and Unique Easter Egg Hunts

Colorful eggs, The Easter Bunny and Easter baskets—break out the fun, it’s time for some fun and unique Easter egg hunts. Looking for some fun and unique ways to change up the traditional Easter Egg Hunt? These fun and unique Easter egg hunts are just the thing.

Easter Egg Hunt #1

Role Reversal Easter Egg Hunt

Instead of the same old Easter egg hunt this year, why not change it up? Save their tooth enamel and forego the sugary treats. This game will get them thinking and help them get something else they’d like to have.

What You Will Need

Plastic Eggs
Paper
Pen or Pencil
Watch or timer
Basket or bag (to carry eggs)

How to play

Decide on a time frame for the hunt. Cut or tear paper into strips. Have the kids write things that they want on each strip (like do not have to do dishes for the day, not have to do laundry, etc.) Fold the pieces of paper, stuff them into the eggs. After they are filled, the kids hide the eggs and the parents try to find them. Any eggs that are not found in the allotted time frame are the ones the kids get to redeem.

Easter Egg Hunt #2

Rhyme Time Adventure Easter Egg Hunt

Who needs candy when you can have an adventure instead? Are you a poet and don’t know it? Then try out this Easter Egg Hunt, it is sure to have the kids scrambling for fun!

What You Will Need

Plastic Eggs
Paper
Pen or Pencil
Marker
Prize(s)
Basket or bag (to carry eggs)

How to play

These clues are designed to send your kids around the house in search of the next clue. Cut or tear the paper into strips. Write clues like: walk up slowly, use the path, this is where we take a bath. Stuff the eggs with the clues and put a number on each one with your marker so that all eggs can be accounted for, then hide them. Hand each child the first clue and send them off on their adventure, making sure that there is a big prize is at the end, one for each of them or one that they can share.

Easter Egg Hunt #3

Golden Ticket Easter Egg Hunt

Make this an Easter to remember and throw a Willy Wonka themed Easter egg hunt. Hide the eggs and send your kids off to find their golden tickets! They’ll be glad you did.

What You Will Need

Plastic Eggs
“Golden Tickets” or gold stars
Assorted small candies
Basket or bag (to carry eggs)
Prizes

How to play

Stuff the eggs with candy and 1 golden ticket per child, e.g. if you have 4 kids you will have 4 eggs with golden tickets. Tell the kids they may each only find one golden ticket. If they have one golden ticket and find another, they must leave the egg where it is. If your kids don’t like to open or are too excited to open their eggs as they gather them then put a golden star or something else on the outside of the egg, so they will know when they’ve found a golden ticket egg. When they find a golden ticket egg they can trade it in on the spot (or after the hunt in complete) for their prize.

So there you have it. Easter egg hunts don’t have to be all about the candy. Any one of these is sure to please your little egg hunters, so grab the plastic eggs and get your kids hunting. Happy Easter!
