In true overachiever fashion, I am helping to host the neighborhood egg hunt, as well as the one I have planned for Peyton and London. The neighborhood one is going to be HUGE. As of right now, about 20 kids will be participating…which meant, I spent the greater part of this morning stuffing candy into plastic eggs. My favorite part of this hunt are the “special golden eggs” which aren’t actually golden at all. Instead, they each contain a nickel, which the kids can exchange for a small prize after the hunt is done – how fun! Some of these prizes include: full-size candy (or Peeps!), tattoos, bubbles, chalk, etc. We have a few games planned for the kids, like the good ol’ balance an egg on a spoon relay race, since I anticipate the actual hunt will last about five minutes.
The hunt I have planned for our girls is much more low-maintence. I have about 30 eggs to hide around our backyard. I mentioned these wouldn’t be filled with candy in an earlier post. Here are some must-haves to host your own egg hunt:
I have cute, glitter hair clips, kid-friendly nail polish, and fun tattoos stuffed into each egg. There are TONS of cute egg hunt signs, but the one at Target and the one by Meri Meri are my favorites! I also picked up two of these color-coordinated egg sets. I am loving the pastel colors! I picked up some festive buckets at Target for the girls to use at both egg hunts!
I hope you are enjoying Easter week! And if you’re planning a fun egg hunt for the kiddos, happy hunting!
