Organize an Easter Egg Hunt at your community park. We have been doing this in our community now for 8 years! We call it our Annual (Informal) Easter Egg Hunt. And it is super easy.
Here are the steps:
1. Choose a day and time based on the forecast. I normally set the event from 2:00 to 4:00 so that families can come after their younger children’s naps.
2. Bring a bunch of plastic eggs.
3. Ask participating families to bring a small bag of chocolate eggs and a basket or bucket for their children to use for collecting eggs.
4. Get the bigger kids to hide the plastic eggs throughout the park.
5. Get the little kids to find the eggs.
6. When the round of hiding and finding is done, all the kids come back and receive 1 chocolate egg.
7. Repeat until kids are bored.
I normally just post this up on my Facebook page and ask other families in the community to share. This is what I include in the Facebook post (if you use this text, you would obviously need to change it from 8th to 1st):
8th Annual (Informal) Easter Egg Hunt
Where: Include the name of the park
When: Include the day and the time
To Bring: Basket or bucket for collecting eggs, bag of chocolate eggs (if you want to).
How It Works: The older children will take turns hiding the eggs, and the other children will find them. Each time a round is over, and children bring their basket of eggs back, all the kids will get one chocolate egg. This will continue until the children get bored.
Let me know if you are interested. And please share this with other families in the community.
You are more than welcome to copy and paste the text that I use for my Facebook post. You are also welcome to use the above photo on your post – since I have read that posts with photos get more traction.
If you do end up running an Annual (Informal) Easter Egg Hunt, and you wanted to share a photo from the event with us, we would love to see it! You can email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or post it on our Facebook page.
