Easter Egg Hunt: 5 Quick Tips to Find More Eggs

Ready for an Easter Egg Hunt? It’s one of the favorite event of the Easter season! Every year kids from around the world take time to look for vibrant colored eggs hidden to see what prizes they might find.

Easter Egg Hunt Tradition

It’s been a fun tradition at my home too. For years, as a child, I would get up early on the day of the Easter Egg hunt strategizing how I could find the most eggs. Some years, I found a bunch of eggs. Other years I only found a few. Every year I had so much fun!

Today my kids enjoy Easter egg hunts as much as I do. We have an annual Easter egg hunt in the backyard. Which is a blast. Then the kids head to the Easter egg hunt at the local park to look for eggs with their friends too.

What Prizes are in Easter Eggs?

Typically Easter Eggs are full of small toys, candy and prizes. While every hunt is different, the prizes are always the best part of the find. You might have cars, Yo-yos or mini dolls. And sometimes they even make Easter mazes and word games folded up really small on paper put inside eggs as prizes.

Of course, the bigger prizes (that don’t fit in an egg) would be a certificate sharing what you win when it’s redeemed after the event is over.

Strategy to Finding Plenty of Eggs

Have you ever wondered what is best way to find easter eggs in an easter egg hunt? Some kids just enjoy looking for eggs. Others had a strategy to find the most. And a few would always just watch and learn.

The important thing to remember is you don’t need to find all the eggs to be successful. Some Easter eggs have bigger prizes than others. So what you need to think about is how you can have a fun time while hanging out with your friends looking for eggs.

Here are five tips that should help you find the most Easter eggs:

1. Keep your eyes peeled: The first thing you need to do is to keep your eyes wide open. Easter eggs can be hidden anywhere, and you don’t want to miss any of them. Look behind bushes, trees, and other objects. Don’t forget to look up too, as eggs can be hidden in branches or on top of objects. It’s important to look at everything!

2. Move around: Don’t just stand in one place hoping the Easter eggs will come to you. The Easter Bunny assumed you would be looking. Move around the area and explore different spots. You might find an egg in a place that someone else has missed. Don’t be afraid to get a little dirty and crawl on the ground if you need to. Or stay on your toes to see if an egg is on a higher shelf.

3. Listen for clues: Sometimes at an Easter Egg Hunt the people who organize it (with the Easter Bunny’s help) and who hide the Easter eggs will give you clues as to where they are hidden. Listen carefully to what they say, and try to follow their directions. If they say something like “look under the green bush,” then that’s a good place to start. Or maybe say “the rocks are pink” then you need to see if there are actually pink rocks or pink eggs hiding in the rocks.

4. Work with your friends: An Easter egg hunt is more fun when you work together with your friends and classmates. You don’t need to be best friends, but the kids you know from the neighborhood can make a great group. Form a team and work together to find as many Easter eggs as you can. You can split up and cover different areas or work together to search the same area.

5. Have fun: The most important thing to remember is to have fun! Don’t worry too much about finding the most Easter eggs. Just enjoy the hunt, and try to find as many as you can. If you don’t find all of them, that’s okay. There’s always next year.

In Conclusion

You might be surprised how much fun you have going to a neighborhood Easter egg hunt. Kids you know coming together to find eggs in the pot or local lot. Then sharing the different toys, candy, printable mazes and prizes won during the competition.
