New Easter Egg Hunt Ideas

Easter is right around the corner! Who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned Easter egg hunt? If you’re planning one this year and looking to mix it up a bit, we’ve got some fresh new Easter egg hunt ideas for you, which the kids are guaranteed to love.

New Easter Egg Hunt Ideas

Easter Egg Eggstravaganza – Instead of putting the usual candy in the eggs, use slips of paper with tasks on them. For example, tasks could be “Name three red fruits,” “Say the Pledge of Allegiance,” or “Do 20 jumping jacks.” When players find an egg, they find you and perform their task. The player that completes the most tasks gets a prize!

Balloon Eggs – Tie helium-filled balloons to the eggs for younger kids. They will go nuts for them!

Easter Egg Treasure Hunt – In this egg hunt, leave clues around the house that lead to a big treasure. If you don’t have time to make the cards, print them with this printable treasure hunt.

Golden Ticket Eggs – Leave three golden tickets (or more if you have a lot of kids playing) in three eggs. Make these eggs the hardest to find! Fill the rest of the eggs with candy, money, or little toys. The kids that find one of the golden tickets get a big prize (think a huge chocolate bunny, movie tickets, or gift cards).

Reverse Roll – Mix it up by having the kids hide the eggs and the adults find them.

Glow-in-the-Dark Hunt – Buy glow in the dark eggs (available at Dollar Tree, Walmart, and Amazon) for an extra special nighttime egg hunt.

Easter Egg Piñata – Every kid loves to take a whack at a pinata. Buy an Easter egg pinata and let the fun begin!

Blindfolded Egg Hunt – Blindfold the kids to make for a very interesting egg hunt. Confine this hunt to a smaller space or it could last a very long time!
