Indoor Easter Egg Hunt

Got super yucky weather scheduled for your Easter egg hunt day? No, problem just keep the egg hunt indoors. We have only had to have indoor Easter egg hunts a couple of times. Once due to freezing cold and once due to a ton of rain. No one wanted to get their nice dress clothes messed up.


Here are some quick tips for Indoor Easter Egg Hunts:

Tip #1 ONLY use plastic eggs. Do not use real eggs. I’ll repeat that DO NOT USE REAL EGGS unless you want to find it a month later by smell. Yep, we made that mistake ONCE while growing up an will never do that again!
Tip#2 Have a couple of other fun activities like coloring pages or bubbles ready. Add a willing uncle to blow said bubbles to make it MORE fun!

Tip#3 Be sure that everyone has similar amount of eggs which equals similar amount of prizes or candy. We have remedied this by giving each child 6 eggs with their own design and then all the plain eggs are bonus or fair game for anyone. This give the kid’s a challenge to find their particular eggs and allow the hiders to hide eggs to the child’s age and ability.

Tip #4 Have fun. Be safe. Check on kids to be sure cousins are playing nice:)

Tip #5 Don’t be surprised if a little mess happens!
