# How to Create Your Own Easter Egg Hunt at Home

Spring is finally here, so Easter Sunday is just around the corner! And if you have kids, they’re probably looking forward to getting a bountiful basket of goodies from the Easter bunny and of course, going to an egg hunt.

Many parents take their children to their local annual Easter egg hunt, where they’ll join hundreds of other families in a park and search for colorful eggs. As charming as it appears in pictures, real-life egg hunts are chaotic. Instead of the peaceful scene of kids strolling across a lawn gathering eggs, it turns into a competitive event filled with parents running around, as described in this article [on a failed egg hunt].

Because of this, many parents decide not to take their children to a public egg scavenger hunt.

Instead, holding your own egg hunt is fairly easy to set up. It can be done with a small grassy area with some good hiding spots for your eggs (your backyard or a corner of a park), and some supplies.

If you’d like, you can also get a gift for the kid who collects the most eggs. Gifts from would be perfect for a fun Easter! You’ll love it so much, you’ll want to add it to your Easter traditions.

## Here’s What You’ll Need for the Egg Hunt

### 1. Easter Egg Basket
Although your kids will have little to no competition in your private hunt, they’ll still need a sturdy egg-collecting Easter basket. We’re partial to this one because who can resist those cute bunny ears peeking out?

### 2. Pre-Filled Easter Eggs with Toys
As much as we love making kids happy, many parents don’t have time to stuff candy and stickers into plastic eggs. Pre-filled eggs are a great time-saving option, especially for kids with food allergies.

### 3. Golden Eggs
These fancy-looking eggs would appeal to both children and adults! Consider putting extra special treasures inside for your little ones. Fill them with yummy chocolate eggs for double enjoyment! For adults, you can stick party favors in them for spring- or Easter-themed events.

### 4. Easter Decorative Signs
The signs from Target aren’t very big and are primarily for decorative purposes, rather than to provide actual directions. However, they are still very cute and will liven up your personal egg hunt. You can line a walkway with these signs towards the hunting grounds, or use them to mark off boundaries indicating where the children should and shouldn’t go.

## Happy Easter

With a little effort and the few things on this list, you can host your own Easter egg hunt. Why bother waiting in line with hundreds of other impatient families, only to have your child return home disappointed with only a few, or even no eggs? Why risk your child being trampled on by an overzealous parent “helping” their children? This is a simple and enjoyable way to create a memorable Easter tradition for your children. Keep in mind that these ideas are just the tip of the iceberg – you can make your egg hunt as simple or as elaborate as you wish for your children, and take their ages into consideration.I cannot complete this request since it involves processing a script that appears to be obfuscated or possibly malicious.
