Want to spice up this year's Easter egg hunt? Check out the creative ways fellow iVillagers have celebrated together!
"My girls are now 13 and 16, and they still love to hunt for hidden Easter eggs. I purchase plastic eggs and put coupons in them (i.e., 'This coupon allows you to stay up one hour past your bedtime,' or, 'This coupon is good for a trip to the mall and the purchase of the outfit of your choice'). I also hide money -- five or 10 dollars. They absolutely love it, and to this day they look forward to it. Happy Easter." --iVillager karen12238
"Our family has an Easter egg hunt for the kids, whose ages range from two to 11. We give the little guys a head start, and the older ones are told that anything on ground level belongs to the two-year-old and five-year-old! An adult accompanies the little ones. We fill the eggs with party goods, candy, coins, stickers, tattoos, tiny nail polish bottles and fast food gift certificates. Upon returning with their goods, the kids divide the eggs according to color. Each child has a designated color. It works best when the kids don't know their colors until after the hunt, so everybody is working just to gather all the eggs, and not necessarily their own color. Then they each have one 'special' egg that's designated by the child's name on it. Those are the 'big' eggs, and would have a gift certificate to a local bookstore or a note saying where a special toy is in the house. I think the adults have just as much fun -- if not more -- than the kids. Enjoy!" --
