How to organise an Easter egg hunt
All you really need to do to organise an Easter egg hunt is invest in some supplies and make sure the participants are not peeking when you set it all up! It’s super easy - these Easter hunt ideas are great to do on Easter Sunday but you can just as easily stage them on any other day during the Easter holidays. You can hold an outdoor Easter egg hunt in the garden, but it’s just as much fun indoors too if you don’t have outside space.
