Social Distancing Easter Egg Hunts are in the works right now.
With these challenging times, we have rounded up socially distanced egg hunts that may just work for you!
Right now our children and us adults are craving normalcy.
With the kids missing their friends at school, milestones, and even some of our children having to spend their birthdays cooped up indoors.
We have found ways (or came up with ways) that others can practice social distancing with easter egg hunt ideas inside or in the backyard.
Which idea will be right for you?
Social Distancing Easter Egg Hunts
As we get started. Please know and understand that there are so many opinions on this matter and I went digging to find what egg hunts people are coming up with or egg hunts that we’ve personally created.
In fact, this may or may not be your cup of tea. However, it interests me in learning what people from around the United States and the world are doing to improvise like us in these difficult times.
Plus, we have come up with a hunt or five to help.
Remember we all parent differently what may work for one family may not work for another.
Easter Egg Hunt To Go
A church in Ormand Beach is hosting an Easter egg hunt to-go! Their plan is to hand out Easter eggs to kids in their area.
They set the date for April 5, 2020, and from 11 am – 1 pm where they will host the egg hunt as a grab and go order.
For example, they’re going to fill a paper bag with easter eggs, an Easter book, and prizes and hand them out.
From my understanding, it will be like a drive up and go kind of station.
If you are a church and plan to host an event like this. We have a few more suggestions that could be added to the bags.

Color Easter Eggs for Windows
Another clever idea for this time of year is to color and hang up Easter eggs!
For example, on your walk around the neighborhood or driving through the town.
See if you and your family can spot the hidden eggs on the windows in the neighborhood.
If you don’t see a lot of eggs hanging up. Try reaching out to your local FB groups in town or asking family members or friends to hang one on their windows.
Plus, parents have your kids join in on the fun by coloring Easter eggs (either hand draw them or print the one below) and hang them up on your front windows.
This will be a fun way for kids to remember 2020 and 2021 with added brightness for this time of year.

Tape the Egg
Another super fun idea that my kiddos can contest to. It is a taped up egg hunt!
What I did was take this kind of tape.
Apply the tape from one area to another area.
Next, allow each child enough space to move as well as the same amount of Easter eggs to race for.
Set a timer or watch to see who could pull off the most amount of eggs first. The winner of the most amount of eggs wins a prize!
Lastly, if I come across any more distant egg hunts or egg hunts to do at home. I will gladly share them with you.
In the meantime, if you have any ideas that could help. Please leave them in the comments we would love to hear about them!
