Easter is right around the corner.  One of the most exciting experiences for kids around this time is participating in an Easter egg hunt. In fact, Winter Haven, Florida once took advantage of this opportunity and threw the world’s largest Easter egg hunt with over 501,000 eggs hidden!

While you most likely won’t be trying to beat that record, creating a unique Easter egg hunt is a fantastic way to get people intrigued into visiting your church, attending an event you host, or simply making memories. Below are several creative Easter egg hunt ideas that go above and beyond simply hiding the eggs. Also, make sure you have picked up your Easter Curriculum for this upcoming April!

Glow In The Dark Easter Egg Hunt


A glow-in-the-dark Easter egg hunt is a small twist that exceeds expectations in creating fun. Buy some glow in the dark Easter eggs, set up some black lights, and decorate the room. Although a glow-in-the-dark hunt is only possible inside, kids will be talking about this experience for years to come!

Reverse Easter Egg Hunt


Instead of hiding the eggs yourself, give each child a basket full of eggs to hide. Allow parents or older siblings the chance to find the eggs that are hidden. Not only is this a unique hunt but it provides a perfect transition into a discussion on generosity or serving.

Drone Easter Egg Hunt


This is a less expensive twist to the popular helicopter Easter egg drop. Using a bag or tarp, attach it to a drone and have it fly over kids. After a few minutes, have the drone either land or release the bag to drop all the eggs. The novelty alone will make this a hunt to remember.

Golden Egg Easter Egg Hunt


Everybody loves the opportunity of winning an amazing prize. This Easter you can give kids that thrill by including one or several golden Easter eggs into your hunt. Hide them extremely well and inform parents and kids of a grand prize if that egg is found. Make the prize worthwhile and you will soon create a buzz around your Easter egg hunt this year!

Burlap Easter Egg Hunt


Okay, the name doesn’t sound amazing but read on. Everybody loves a bunny hop race and an Easter egg hunt, so why not mix the two? Combine the sack race game by buying burlap bags and give each kid a bag that they have to hop around in while collecting eggs. Not only will the egg hunt last longer, but kids will pretend to hop around like bunnies as they actively search for eggs.


Kids love Easter egg hunts. No matter what style of hunt you end up doing, the children at your event will love you for it. So, what type of hunt are you doing this April? We would love to hear your ideas by commenting below!
