6 Tips to Organise the Best Community Easter Egg Hunt
Easter is just around the corner, and so is the excitement. Everyone, especially the kids look forward to the Easter holidays to relax and enjoy the bliss season with friends and neighbours. Easter egg hunt has always been an annual tradition for most of the families and communities to celebrate. It not only gives you a chance to indulge in activities but also provides an opportunity to reconnect with people around your community; sort of a get-together. No doubt the kids enjoy hunting for colourful Easter eggs, but so do the adults have a good time setting up the activities and hiding the eggs. To make your Easter even more exciting, we are here with a few pro-tips so that you can organise a great Easter Egg Hunt:
1. Set the Date and Invite your Guests
A few days ahead is Easter, so you got to start planning in advance. Get your team together and fix a date. Preferably choose a date when all your guests are available. As they say, ‘more the people, more the fun’. Having the Easter Egg Hunt around the weekends would be the best! However, you could discuss this with your people and decide accordingly. Easter-themed invites would be perfect to suit the occasion.
2. Easter-themed Decorations
Pull on the Easter vibe by decorating the venue as per the Easter theme. You could make colourful Easter eggs (huge ones) and place them alongside the food table. Another inexpensive décor idea would be handmade Easter bunnies. You can get-together with your community just a few days before the Easter event and prepare some great Easter décor on your own. Even better, having helium balloons or any sort of balloon décor would add a festive shade to the Easter celebration.
3. Prepare the Easter Eggs
This is the key ingredient to your Easter egg hunt. You can use real eggs to decorate in vivid colours. But readymade plastic eggs have always proven to be ideal for such an occasion. You can buy these colourful plastic eggs, depending upon the number of guests or participants. Typically, 10 – 15 eggs per person would suffice. However, that would depend upon the age groups. For the slightly elder kids, you could purchase more eggs to make it a little more challenging. Stuff these eggs with yummy candies, jelly beans or any sweets that you prefer. Make sure you put in enough effort to make those Easter eggs look vibrant and fascinating.
4. Make Teams based on Age Groups
Divide the kids according to age groups. Make separate teams for the younger ones and older ones. Encourage the elder ones to help the younger ones find their share. First, send out the younger age group kids for the hunt. They are more likely to finish within 20 – 30 minutes, collecting 8 – 10 Easter eggs. Whereas, if you’re planning on making the hunt slightly more challenging for the elder ones, they might want to take a little longer to complete the hunt. Try saving up a separate bunch of eggs (perhaps filled with some coins or special prizes) for the elder age group children and hide these eggs in a bit tricky-to-find location. Make sure you don’t forget to give proper instruction before the hunt begins.
