Do you have a mix of fast and slow little bunnies running for those eggs? We love how mom Karen color-coded her eggs and made matching baskets (Just in case someone forgets what color they have!). Jump over to Sew Many Ways for the step-by-step of this eggs-cellent idea.


4. Lunch Hunt

Hunt for your lunch! Make Easter Sunday 2022 fun for both big and little kids who’ll love this type of egg hunt inspired by Gluesticks blog. Whether it’s their favorite sandwich, fruit or snack, they’ll have fun both finding and eating it. Your kids will think you’re the coolest.

5. Reverse-Role Egg Hunt

Switch it up! As far as Easter egg hunts go, this is a good idea for bigger kids. Let them be the Easter bunny and hide the eggs. Add a great twist by writing their chores on a piece of paper and putting it in the eggs. Then, it’s time for the parents to look for the eggs. Any eggs not found are chores kids don’t have to do!

6. Token Egg Hunt

Kids will be stoked when they get yolk tokens to exchange for prizes. We love this Token Egg Hunt created by Life as a Mom. Not only is there no chocolate in this hunt, but you can also customize the prizes for all the bunnies.

7. Family Truth or Dare Egg Hunt

Do you want to do 10 jumping jacks or reveal your favorite toy? Fill Easter eggs with cute and fun family-friendly truth or dare challenges that you can do indoors or the backyard. Have the whole family find the hidden eggs and then, it’s time for truth or dare. Who knows, you may learn something new!

8. Treasure Hunt

Arrr! Gather up ye mateys to search for the pirate map hidden in the colorful Easter eggs. First, make a treasure map, then cut it up and put the pieces into the eggs. Next, tell your little bunnies to find the eggs. Finally, your little treasure hunters can tape the map together to find their Easter baskets.

Your little peeps will be glowing after this Easter egg hunt. You can either buy glow-in-the-dark eggs or you can put a small LED light (or bracelet glow stick) inside of plastic eggs, then hide the eggs indoors for lil’ bunnies and outside for bigger kiddos.
