Is there any sweeter springtime rite than a good old-fashioned Easter egg hunt? Get inspired to host your own epic hunt by this updated take on a holiday classic courtesy of Poppy & Blush.
Give guests a hint of the fun to come by gussying up the path to your Easter egg hunt with bunny tracks drawn with colorful sidewalk chalk.
It’s always a good idea to have backup containers on hand for anyone who forgot to bring one, but Poppy & Blush took it a step further and created a personalized one for each guest. Just spray aluminum buckets with chalk paint in different colors and draw on the names.
Brightly colored eggs are easier to find. Poppy & Blush even added some shimmer with glittery plastic eggs.
The more types of loot, the more fun kids will have finding it! Mix some plastic eggs in with the real ones and fill with small toys, colorful candies, and other small prizes (like temporary tattoos).
An Easter egg hunt can — and should — be fun for kids of all ages. If you have a wide range of age levels, divide the kiddos into small groups that will search for timed periods separately.
To keep things fair, set a timer and let the littlest kids go first, cycling through until everyone has had a turn.
DIY signs give everyone a clue as to where to look (and look festive dotted around the hunt).
Leaving eggs in plain sight is also helpful for smaller kids…
…while older kids will enjoy more of a challenge.
