If you’re in charge of planning your group’s egg hunt, make sure to keep a few key points in mind. First, it’s essential to make sure to count the eggs before hiding them to ensure speedy cleanup. Additionally, make sure to choose hiding spaces based on the age group that will be participating in the Easter egg hunt.

It’s usually best to put some eggs in hard to find locations and hide others in more obvious spots. This helps to ensure that the hunt will be fun for kids of all ages! If you’ll be creating your own clues, keep the age group of the participants in mind again. For little children, the clues should be short and straightforward. Those that are older will likely enjoy more complex, challenging clues.
