How do you handle different ages in an Easter egg hunt?
Even more helpful FAQs of an Easter egg Hunt! If you have a large group that includes babies, toddlers, children, tweens, and teens. You will want to either A, let the littlest kids start first, or allow a head start. The second option would be to allow each player to grab a certain number of eggs.
For example, my mother-in-law hosts an Easter egg hunt at her house each year. When we go there, each child only allows 5 small eggs and 1 jumbo egg. This allows for all of the grandkids to get eggs.
Another suggestion you could use has them color-coated. Our reader Andrea suggests having color-coated eggs. If you have five kids, each child could have a different egg color to look for, which would help save arguments! Thanks, Andrea!
Should I put chocolate in the Easter eggs?
This is a fantastic question! We all love Cadbury eggs am I right? The cream eggs are made particularly for Easter time! Luckily, anymore it’s not just for Easter. I spotted these Scream Cadbury eggs too! Crazy right?
Anyways, sorry, back to the chocolate question. This will depend on the area and climate you live in. If you live in Florida and the weather is in the ’80s, I highly recommend NOT putting chocolate in the eggs. However, if you live in Ohio and it’s 20′ outside. You can totally put chocolate in the eggs! Not only can you put chocolate, but if it’s snowing, you can do this frozen Easter egg hunt in the snow!
How Many Eggs Do You Need For An Easter Egg Hunt?
This can vary by the number of people you’re organizing the event for! For example, the average amount of eggs that children get in a community Easter egg hunt would be around 15 eggs per child if you organize an event for your children or grandchildren at your home. You could choose to do 5-10 per kid. It will depend on finances and space.
Is it tacky to ask for the eggs from an egg hunt for next Easter?
No, it is not tacky to ask for the plastic eggs back. Here is a scenario that may help. I have been to lots of egg hunts, including the church, family houses, and organized events in our local community. Out of five Easter egg hunts last year, four out of five hunts asked to please return the plastic eggs. There is nothing wrong with getting the plastic containers (eggs) back. Suppose it does really bother you. Target usually has 90% clearance on all Easter items about 4-5 days after the holiday. I hope that helps! 🙂
Where to buy Easter eggs?
I personally love finding unique Easter eggs when I can, so I look on Amazon, Hobby Lobby, Target, and Wal-Mart. If you want to find an affordable price on Easter eggs and Marc’s store nearby, I would recommend them! I found twelve count camo eggs at a great price. For 2 packages, it was only 0.98 cents! Score! The dollar tree will have eggcellent deals too!
Do I need plastic eggs or would boiled eggs work?
Each Easter egg hunt is different. However, I recommend having plastic eggs with mystery surprises inside for added fun for Easter.
The best places to hide Easter eggs Outside?
This will depend on the age of the group. However, the most recommended areas would be the following for outside.
- Small Trees
- Hanging Plants
- Underneath a Picnic Table
- Behind Lawn Ornaments
- Outside objects
- Inside or under the BBQ Grill (Don’t forget to mark where you place the eggs!)
- Dogs Collar, lol

What To Do About Allergies at an Easter Egg Hunt
One of the most important FAQs of an Easter egg hunt may be in the eggs I am allergic to? As the host of the event, one good idea would be to ask all those participating if they are allergic to anything in particular. If so, do not add those items to the hunt.
Another option would be not to add any candy or food items to the eggs. This way, it adds peace of mind to all those at the event that everyone will be safe.
What else to do at an Easter egg hunt
You could do many things at an Easter egg hunt besides just hunting for eggs. Suppose you are organizing a community easter egg hunt or a sponsored event. Try reaching out to local paint artists who may want to participate; inflatable or bouncy houses are a fantastic choice; crafts, a petting zoo, cotton candy, and other food items are always a treat the parents and children look forward to.
Virtual Easter Egg Hunt
With some egg hunts being put on hold at Grandma’s house or in your local community. A way to help with a virtual Easter egg hunt is to contact family or friends and do an online easter egg hunt. Purchase the same amount of plastic eggs ahead of time and set a time for 11 AM for each household. At 11 AM, go on Zoom or Facebook live and share in the joy of watching each other’s kids hunt for eggs or take turns with a virtual egg hunt.
Wrapping Up Faqs of an Easter Egg Hunt
You will also need to give yourself enough time to plan, organize, and set out the eggs. To make the event wonderful for every participant. Lastly, bring extra grocery bags to place the eggs in for children or adults that want to play! Most of them may not have a basket. Good Luck, and I hope you have a lot of fun!
