Host an Easter Egg Hunt at the Beach
SCOUT YOUR SPOT
Easter egg hunts are all about figuring out the best hiding places. So, to have a successful hunt you need to find the right spot.
PICK OUT YOUR FILLING
Kids love Easter egg hunts for the mystery of what’s inside. So, make yours interesting! Sure, candy is an easy go to, but there are many ways to get creative.
While you’re scouting for your spot, grab some shells and sea glass. Make sure the ones you pick can easily be made into necklaces. Pack the Easter eggs with a combination of the shells, sea glass, and some colorful string to get the kids crafting!
Easter egg hunts can often bring out the competitive side in children. So, make things fun and get a puzzle. Scatter the pieces of the puzzle into different Easter eggs and get the kids collaborating to put it together.
If the age range of the children participating is large, a great way to level the playing field is by assigning everyone a color. When big kids and little kids are involved it is difficult for the little ones to keep up. So, assigning everyone their own color will ensure that no one feels left out.
DECORATE YOUR BASKET
To get the kids excited for the hunt, get decorating! Choosing the right basket is a great way to set the stage. Add some ribbon and use the extra string left over from the necklaces to make the baskets look more festive! Make each basket unique so the kids can easily identify their own.
If the group of kids participating has a large age range and you choose to assign individual colors. Decorate the baskets with the assigned colors so that it’s easy for the kids to remember which eggs they should pick up.
GRAB SOME SNACKS
Running around the sand searching for Easter eggs is exhausting. Make sure you bring some snacks and water to tide the kids over until it’s time for brunch.
BRING BEACH ACCESSORIES
Create a nice space to keep the parents comfortable. Grab a large blanket and your trusty beach umbrella so everyone can sit under the shade and enjoy watching as the kids run through the sand. Make sure to grab some sunblock to keep your skin safe from those harsh rays and don’t forget your beautiful swimwear and sunglasses!
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the holiday with your family!
