Top 10 Easter Egg Hunt Ideas
With Spring now in full swing, we've been hopping to it with our Easter plans and our new wooden Personalised Wreath design has got us excited for the annual egg hunt! This gorgeous wreath is printed with an array of colourful eggs, perfect for an Easter party, and the wood is intricately cut to read 'Happy Easter' or can be personalised with a name of your choice for the ultimate Easter egg hunt accessory. What's more, each wreath is made with love here in our workshop in the UK, so quality is guaranteed.
To celebrate and help you get prepared, we've rounded up the best Easter egg hunt ideas that Pinterest has to offer! Whether it's one for the kids or a hunt to get everyone involved, there's plenty of ideas to get you inspired.

4. Unique Ways for an Easter Egg Hunt
The team at eBay have put together a great blog post with unique egg hunt ideas. We really like the educational games, such as the ABC egg hunt and Maths Games - great for little ones who will have too much fun hunting to notice they're learning!

You've heard about the Easter Bunny but what about the Easter Puppy? Beagles and Bargains have a plan for an egg hunt that's dog friendly, so your beloved pooch can join in the festivities.
6. Egg Hunting in the Office

If you want something a bit different for the older ones this Easter, the Bits of Everything blog has got free downloadable QR code sheets for a smart phone Easter egg hunt. Scan as you go to find the clues to the Easter treasure! Who said the Easter Bunny has to be traditional?
8. Glow in the Dark
Another fun alternative to chocolate hunting is this Glow in the Dark idea from Eats Amazing. You'll need some plastic eggs, glow sticks and sticky tape and then you're ready to go for a fun hunt in the dark! Amazing.
9. Ticking off the Checklist
For an even more engaging Easter Egg hunt, add more for the kids to find than just chocolate goodies! There's a printable checklist available on the A Mom's Take blog, full of sights and smells for the hunters to tick off as they go.
10. Family Tree Egg Hunt for Toddlers
When it comes to your toddlers, we know it can be a challenge to keep hold of their attention span - egg hunting is only interesting for so long! - but luckily Mum's Days have come up with a brilliant idea for keeping them engaged. Try making your own egg shapes with family photos on - they'll love searching for the familiar faces and might find this a more interesting alternative!
