Introduction: How to Plan a 21st Century Egg Hunt
Celebrating Easter is never complete without an egg hunt! It’s a fun-filled and creative culminating activity that both kids and adults enjoy. Marty McFly may have been wrong about the existence of hoverboards this year, but there are still some new and exciting ways that you can organize and play this event! Take a peek at what the future has in store with TINE Tag, a free app that lets you leave video, audio or picture messages on stickers which others can scan to see or hear your message! The possibilities are endless! Here’s how we used TINE for an egg hunt:

Step 1: Order TINE Tags and Prep the Eggs
Before anything else, order some tags from in-app. They usually arrive within 2-5 days, so make sure you have enough time before the egg hunt. Click on the More icon on the bottom of the screen then tap Request TINE Tags to order your free tags. Fill each egg with candy and chocolate.
If you don't have TINE tags you can get them for free via the app.
Step 2: Stick and Scan
Stick a TINE tag on the outside of the eggs. Tap Scan at the bottom of the screen, align the sticker within the white border and wait for a confirmation that the tag has been scanned.
Step 3: Add Audio and Record the Clues
Step 4: Hide the Eggs and Have Fun!
You’re done! Once you’ve finished recording all the clues, hide the eggs. Don’t forget to keep a list of where you’ve hidden them. TINE automatically notifies you once a player scans a tag, letting you keep track of the game.
Bonus: If you want to get extra creative, plan different themes for each egg ahead of time, and instead of audio clues, you can dress up and provide video clues instead! Don’t forget to download TINE Tag and order the stickers in-app for free.
