Easter egg hunts have become a family tradition since my eldest was born and one she remembers well. This will be her her fourth Easter and her fourth Easter egg hunt.
The first two years were organised by my mother-in-law for F and her older cousin. Last year we were with my parents and I wanted to continue the Easter egg hunt tradition so I set one up for her. She was almost 3 so it was probably the one she has enjoyed the most. I kept it simple with Easter eggs (chocolate eggs in a variety of sizes and colours and plastic eggs) hidden in my parent’s garden and a few decorative Easter printables. We gave her a basket and she enjoyed hunting them all out and filling her basket.
We’ve been fortunate with the weather each year and have always managed to have the Easter egg hunt outside. Read on for some further suggestions for older children.
If you’d like to add some printables like the ones in my photos, these ones are from In the playroom.

- If you want a chocolate free Easter egg hunt, how about a puzzle Easter egg hunt?
