DO AN EASTER EGG HUNT
Added on: 19th Apr 2014
Easter egg hunts are a common Easter holiday tradition,
especially for children. Organizing an Easter egg hunt indoors
can sometimes be your best option, especially if the Easter
holiday occurs on a rainy day.
Obtain eggs for the Easter egg hunt.
You can use real, hard-boiled eggs you may have dyed
for the Easter holiday, or use plastic, hollow Easter eggs
you can fill with goodies.
Since you are performing the Easter egg hunt indoors,
you may want to use plastic eggs instead of real eggs.
Purchase small goodies to place inside the plastic
Easter eggs, if applicable. Plastic Easter eggs can be filled
with goodies such as chocolate, jelly beans, money,
toys, and other similar prizes. For example,
if the Easter egg hunt is for a group of young girls,
fill the eggs with stickers, lip gloss, or similar items girls may enjoy.
Designate certain indoor areas specifically for the Easter egg hunt.
Before you hide the eggs, you should determine the rooms or
places in which children are safely allowed to search.
For example, choose safe, open rooms such as the living room,
instead of somewhere where dangerous tools and
chemicals are stored. Tape signs over rooms and locations
in which you do not want children to search for Easter eggs.
For example, hang signs that read
"Do not enter" on cabinets and the doors of rooms
you don't want searched.
Choose a private time during which to hide the Easter eggs.
To help ensure that the Easter egg hunt is fun for the children,
you should hide the eggs when the children are asleep,
or absent from the location. For example, hide the
Easter eggs on the night before Easter while your children are asleep.
Hide the Easter eggs in various locations throughout
your home or indoor venue.
The Easter eggs can be hidden in easy-to-spot locations for
younger children, or in complex locations for older children.
For example, if the children are toddlers, hide eggs in
corners of rooms, or in Easter baskets within plain view.
Make note of all the locations in which you hide the Easter eggs.
A list will help you ensure that the children find all the hidden
Easter eggs successfully. Additionally, a list will prevent Easter eggs
that aren't found from becoming rotten if they are real,
and the edible goodies inside plastic eggs from going stale.
