On the hunt for another fun Easter egg hunt idea?? I love this tip shared by frugal friend Sarah, Easter Egg Hunt Ideas: Color Coded or Numbered Eggs!
“A creative solution we use in our family for egg wars amongst kids (especially since we have a wide range of ages) is that we “color code” eggs, ie: all blue eggs for one child, all pink for another, etc. It really evens the playing field for the lil ones and helps there be less fights about one kid getting tons of eggs & another not too many.”
I’ve tried this tip in our family, too… and it has worked like a charm!
Another thing we’ve done is numbered egg hunts… one child will get all of the eggs with a #1 on them, one child will get all eggs with a #2 on them, and so on. Simply number equal numbers of eggs with a sharpie, and you’re all set!
For older kids, try this…
Easter Egg Hunts in the Dark
Gone are the days of my babies hunting for Easter eggs in broad daylight… eggs in bright colors… and eggs hidden visibly in the middle of the grass.
Nope ~ those days are over now. Now eggs are various shades of green, camoflauge, etc… and Easter Egg Hunts in the Dark?!?
Now that my boys are 11 and 13 years old, my hubby has taken things up a level or three. For the past few years eggs have been hidden in the pool and in the trees ~ yes… climbing and diving required! You’ve got to work for those eggs at our house!
Last year, we added a fun new twist to the egg hunt… it started after dark!
Armed with flashlights and glow sticks, off the boys went… hunting for their eggs and having an absolute blast!
Here they are checking out their new found eggs by flashlight…
