Traditional Easter egg hunts with candy and treats, while fun, leave little to the imagination. If the Easter Bunny (aka, you) wants to get creative this year, consider a scavenger hunt! If you’re tired of your Easter Egg Hunt looking like Willy Wonka, fill some of the eggs with coins (money), coupons to trade in for toys. Make sure you fill at least one of the eggs with the “Golden Ticket” Once found, they can turn it in for a special prize. Who knows, you might just start a new family tradition this Easter Sunday.
Make a Map
Instead of hiding the eggs in a small section of your yard or home, place them around the neighborhood or even a park — avoiding any private property that you don’t have permission to use — and draw a map to find the treasures. Give everyone their own map, marked with the locations of the eggs and set a clock for one hour. Like some scavenger hunts, you can also allow a cell phone GPS app to help them locate the eggs. Count how many eggs each has found when the hunt wraps up. Whichever team hunts out the most eggs wins a special surprise like gift certificate, iTunes card and even an Easter Basket filled with a variety of treats.
