How to Plan a 21st Century Egg Hunt

Introduction: How to Plan a 21st Century Egg Hunt

About: TINE is what you would get if you combined a Post-it Note with Youtube and it is the easiest way to stick video, audio or photo messages to the world around you.

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:

What You’ll Need:

  • An iPhone or Android phone with the TINE Tag app installed (downloadable from the Apple App Store or Google Play for free)
  • TINE tags (you can order them for free in-app)
  • Plastic eggs
  • Candies and chocolates
  • A list of clues and riddles

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.

Download TINE for iPhone and Android.

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

You’re now on the Quick Setup page. Click Add Audio Message. Hit the record button, and start recording a clue. Tap the red button again to stop recording. Here are good lists of clues from Netmum and Easter Egg Hunt Clues to help you out.

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.

TINE Tag is free for iPhone and Android.
