Easter egg hunt

By Charles Hopkins Published 03/13/2006 | Religion

An Easter egg hunt is something that everyone can enjoy.  There are many people who do this every year and have a great time participating in.  An Easter egg hunt is something that kids can do to celebrate the Easter holiday.   It takes both kids and adults to have a great Easter egg hunt and to make it a lot of fun.

An Easter egg hunt is when you take colored real or fake eggs and hide them in different places.  The children then go out and look for them.  If you use real eggs, the kids get to keep the eggs and maybe even get a prize for the one who gets the most eggs.  When you use real eggs, part of the fun is to color the eggs with your family also.  You can decorate the eggs however you want and with different things to make them more creative.  Just make sure that you hard-boil the eggs first before you color and hide them.  This will be a lot less messy.

If you use the plastic eggs for your Easter egg hunt, you can fill the eggs with candy or even money.  This will be just as much fun for the kids as using real eggs.  You can use almost anything to fill the inside of the plastic Easter eggs with.  The kids then keep the prizes that are inside and in some hunts may even get a prize for the most eggs found. 

The parents or adults can have just as much fun hiding the eggs as the kids have finding them.  You can have the hunt inside or out depending on the weather.  It is best to spread the eggs out when you hide them.  This will make it harder for the kids to find them.  If you are having a large Easter egg hunt for many different children, you may consider splitting the groups up by the ages.  This may make it fairer for the little children that do not find the eggs as easy as the older kids do. 

There are lots of different groups that have Easter egg hunts available for kids.  Church groups are a big part of the Easter egg hunt tradition.  This is a fun way to get the children in on the Easter tradition and get them excited about the religious holiday.  Many communities also have great Easter egg hunts for the children that live in and around the area. 

If you do not have a place near you that has an Easter egg hunt available, you can plan one yourself.  Get other parents in on the fun with their children or you can plan one for just you and your family.  It does not matter how many kids you have or how many eggs you do, you and your children will have a great time making memories and spending quality time together for the Easter holiday.  Even if you only have one child, it will be just as much fun for both the kid and the parents.

Having a special Easter egg hunt for you and your family is one way to celebrate the Easter holiday for years to come for just about anyone.
