Top 5 Easter Egg Hunt Tips

What could go wrong at a fun event involving kids, candy, and the outdoors? I hope that I won’t shock any new parents out there, but the public egg hunt is not always all fun and games. It’s lots of fun but it can also result in tears from both kids and parents. Here are some of the top tips to help make the experience safe and enjoyable.

Tip #1 – Choose Your Egg Hunt Wisely.

Different egg hunts have different rules and it’s smart to choose a hunt that fits your family’s age children and temperaments. For example, a fast, competitive child might thrive at a free-for-all egg hunt that’s every man for himself, but a shy child might find the same hunt frightening and leave without a single egg.

Find out . . . What are the rules for this egg hunt?

  • What are the ages of kids hunting together?
  • Is there a limit of eggs per kid?
  • How large is the event? (The larger the number of kids hunting at the same time, the greater chance there will be some aggressive behavior from the kids hunting.)
  • How much waiting is involved?

Beware of the hunts that allow parents to “help” kids. It’s not unheard of to watch fellow parents run toddlers over while they help their very capable preschooler fill an overflowing basket of eggs.

Tip #2 – Dress Appropriately

Easter is early-April this year which means the day could rapidly go from a cool early morning to a hot late morning or afternoon depending on the weather.

  • Layer your kids clothing if it’s cooler so that you can take off a layer if it gets warm or if your kids get hot from running around.
  • Don’t neglect the sunscreen. The UV index can catch you by surprise this time of year.
  • Have your kids wear shoes that they can run in. Tennis shoes are best to avoid bug bites and toe stepping.
  • Many of the public hunts offer bounce houses for the kids to play in so be sure your kids wear socks.

Tip #3 – Plan ahead

Make sure that you plan time to park. If your egg hunt has an age requirement for a specific time, your child will likely only be allowed to hunt at that time. If the hunt is large, plan at least 30 minutes for parking and registration before the hunt. Also pack snacks, water, extra clothes, and don’t forget the basket! You should always have a backup plan as well, just in case your kid’s basket ends up empty.

Tip #4 – Go Over Rules

Be sure to go over your expectations of behavior before the craziness starts. Let your kids know that pushing, shoving, or taking other people’s eggs are a no-no.

Tip #5 – Consider Planning Your Own Hunt

In lieu (or in addition) to the big community hunt, consider planning your own private hunt with just your own kids or with your neighborhood or friends. Smaller hunts can allow for actual hiding (rather than just a bunch of eggs dumped in a field) and a smaller event can also be a fun chance to dye eggs and enjoy Easter games. It’s a simple event that the kids enjoy and it doesn’t involve tons of candy. With friends and family. Have fun!
