How to Create the Perfect Easter Egg Hunt for Kids Under 10

06 Apr 2017 Posted by: Stuart Willis

Easter is almost upon us and there’s no better way to celebrate than with a good old-fashioned egg hunt.

You’ll surely have fond memories from you own youth of when you got to enjoy the timeless scavenger hunt. However, now it’s your turn to prepare the game yourself – and make it better than ever for your kids.

If you’re looking to set up an egg hunt for under 10s, here are a few handy tips to help you on your way.

Consider the Hiding Places

You’ll need a range of hiding places for the game to be a success.

This means that some eggs should be discovered quickly, while others should take a little more digging. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box if you want to ensure maximum enjoyment.


Use Imaginative Clues

Instead of letting the kids just go to town looking for the eggs, you should point them in the right direction with a range of clever clues and riddles. How about throwing in a few rhymes for extra fun?

Don’t Just Use Chocolate Eggs

Resist the urge to make the hunt all about chocolate eggs. After all, these aren’t just unhealthy, they’re also what the kids will be expecting.

Therefore, use a range of artificial and hard-boiled eggs too. Additionally, you can also hide a couple of goodies like paints and felt-tip pens for the children to decorate their hoard with.



An egg is usually a prize in itself. However, you can go above and beyond by preparing additional prizes such as certificates or plastic medals for the best hunters.

Happy Hunting!

Easter egg hunts are always entertaining, whether you’re a child who’s involved or an adult who’s just watching on from the sidelines.

They don’t even take that much work to set up, so simply follow these handy tips and you should be on to a winner.
