Stock up on crafting supplies and Easter egg decorating materials this spring! Make it easy to enjoy the holiday with your family by preparing a crafting kit in advance.

Make a basket by cutting construction paper into strips, and weaving them together for strength. Simply add a handle, a little stuffing, and display your children’s beautifully decorated eggs for the entire family to see! And, for those of you with a sweet tooth, throw in a few chocolates for decoration.

Let the Easter Games Begin!

What better way to get kids excited about Easter than to hold a scavenger hunt!? Every clue leads to a fuller basket and is a step closer to their special prize at the end of the trail. Taking the time to set up a treasure hunt will create lasting Easter memories for years to come. An Easter Scavenger Hunt Party can be fun for kids and adults-it’s a chance to socialize with the neighbours, get some fresh air and exercise and have fun!

Here are some simple tips and ideas to make your Easter morning a success!

Planning the hunt is half the fun! The game can be limited to the house, the yard or perhaps your local park. Why not make it a Street event? You and your neighbours can chat over coffees while the kids are running from yard to yard to collect their loot! Clues can come in a variety of forms and you can make your clues as obvious or difficult as you wish, just remember to keep them age appropriate. Here are some ideas you can try:

For little ones you can make a treasure map with symbols and simple drawings. Or, why not use the game UKLOO! UKLOO is a treasure hunt game designed to help reluctant and beginner readers. Kids have so much fun, they don’t even realize they’re actually learning to read!

Or how about leaving a trail of arrows for kiddies to follow…or my favourite, a trail of chocolate eggs.

Use PHOTOS or draw PICTURES. Clues can be an image of the actual hiding place or you can be a little more cryptic and have a picture of a hint of the location, such as a picture of a leaf if you want to send the kids to a tree.

For older children you can create riddles. You can use Plastic Easter Eggs to hold candy prizes and new clues to the next location.

Of course, there is the quick and dirty plan (but always a BLAST) the Free For All. Hide eggs and prizes all over the place and send the hunters out to gather!

You can even create a special gift for each child and put their name on it so they know when they find their unique prize.

Send us photos of your Easter Morning and feel free to post your Easter Morning Traditions for other families to try!
