Easter egg hunts are a lot of fun. But you don't have to restrict yourself to just scattering eggs on your front lawn. There are plenty of ways that you can make an Easter egg hunt more interesting. So today, I am going to share a few ideas for unconventional Easter egg hunts.
Step 1: Easter Egg Treasure Hunt
The easiest way to make a map is to find a satellite image online and draw a quick copy on a piece of paper. Then as you are hiding the eggs, mark an "X" at each location. If you have multiple kids, make different maps. That way one kid doesn't waste a lot of time looking for an egg that has already been found.
One of the main advantages of this kind of Easter egg hunt is that you can send your kids running all over a park so that they burn off a lot of energy.
Step 2: Excavate the Eggs
Warning: This may result in a lot of sand being thrown around and creating a huge mess.
Step 3: Paintball Easter Egg Battle
Another way to play is to fill the eggs with paintballs. Each player starts with a small number of paintballs and they have to find eggs to refill their ammo.
Step 4: Stick the Eggs to Random Surfaces
Step 5: Glow in the Dark Easter Eggs
There are two simple lights that can work well for this. You can use LEDs or small glow sticks. To use an LED in an egg, all you have to do is tape a small 3V button cell battery between the leads of the LED and put it in the egg with the candy. To use a glow stick, just bend it to break the internal cells and put it in the egg with the candy.
Just remember to be careful while running around in the dark. It is really easy for kids to fall and get hurt, especially when they aren't looking where they are going.
