Plan a Perfect Easter Egg Hunt
Plan an Egg-stra Special Event for Your Kids
By Shandley McMurray
What Easter celebration would be complete without an Easter egg hunt? Whether you’re planning an indoor search for three or an outdoor event for 300, here are a few ideas to help you organize the perfect hunt this year.
Use different colors
Color code the eggs according to age, says Judith Manley, a mother of eight and grandmother of eleven, who remembers hunting for eggs with her children in Lewiston, New York. Get two- to four-year-olds looking for blue eggs while those four to six search for green, and so on. “That way the little ones have an equal chance at finding the eggs,” she says.
Paint a different letter on each egg, says Corinne Williams of Hammonton, New Jersey, a mother of one. Then have the kids create words with the eggs they’ve found. The kid with the most words wins a prize.
