Easter Egg Hunt Ideas

I have to admit. I am way behind on the Easter festivities this year. I am blaming it on the horribly long, cold, snowy winter we had and are still having, despite it officially being Spring. I mean, it's really hard to plan an Easter Egg Hunt when you look out the window and still see several inches of snow on the ground. We weren't even sure we were going to be able to do a hunt this year but my husband and I decided we didn't care what kind of weather it was this year, this is our first Easter in our new house and our back yard was made for Easter egg hunting! We figure we can make the kids change into play clothes and then we can do the Easter Egg Hunt after dinner on Sunday.

The sad part is, our kids are getting bigger now. My younger two boys are the youngest of the kids in my whole family so they are still at a good age for hunting eggs but all of the other kids are really getting too old for traditional egg hunts. I think this makes the older kids feel sad about growing up and having to miss out on fun traditions. Heck, it makes me sad for them (and for me because that means I am getting older too!) My husband and I spent the past couple of days planning our Easter Egg Hunt so that all of the kids can have a good time and here are some of the things we are doing.

*There will be 6 kids here on Easter so we are going to color code the eggs and give each child a certain color to hunt. This way they aren't just running all over the yard picking up random eggs, they are actually going to have to hunt for their color. The younger kids eggs will be filled mainly with candy and small treats but the older kids will also have money in their eggs! Each child will have 24 eggs to find.

*Each child is going to have one giant egg hidden with their name on it. The child who finds their name egg first will win a prize

*There will be 1 prize egg for each child in their corresponding color

*There will be random prize eggs hidden in multi-colored eggs that any child can pick up. If we can find it, I also want to get a nice golden egg as the BIG prize of the hunt! 

*There will be an award for whichever child finds all of his/her eggs first

Prizes include candy (of course), small, inexpensive toys for the younger kids like bubbles, jump ropes, chalk, etc. and then we have some more age appropriate prizes for the older kids. 

Next year, I plan to start WAY earlier. I want to get glow in the dark eggs and have a night time egg hunt for the older kids.  

What about you? Will you be holding an Easter Egg Hunt this year? How are you doing yours???
