Great places to hide Easter eggs for an Easter egg hunt!

Spring is an exciting time of the year for children because the Easter egg hunt adventure is back! If you are looking for some creative Easter eggs hiding spots, you are in the right place. We want to keep your egg hunt new and exciting by letting you into our secret hiding places.

You should hide the eggs in places that are in plain view for children below five years old. For older children, put the eggs in places that need a little more effort to be accessed.  Here are some of our favourite places to hide your Easter eggs.

Tissue Box

Tuck the Easter egg into the tissue box and conceal it slightly with a tissue. This is a great place to hide the egg as not only is it hard to see already but hiding the tissue box under something else or only have the corner poking out can make it more challenging.

Indoor Play Set

If you have a dollhouse at home, hide an egg in one of the rooms or multiple rooms. Alternatively, you can tuck the eggs in another playset or building blocks to conceal them.

Flower Pots

Flowers and plants perfectly disguise bright coloured eggs. If you have a decorative pot or centrepiece at home, you can hide an egg or two in there. To make it harder, try to camouflage the eggs with similar coloured plants and flowers.

Windowsills

Seems an obvious idea? Well, nestling an egg away in the folds of a blind is a classic but still a stylish practice. Consider the height you hide them at, the higher they’re hidden, the harder they will be to spot!

A Gardening Glove

If you love gardening, chances are you have a pair of gardening gloves at home. Tuck the egg into the glove or make it even harder and push it down to the fingertips of the gloves.

Behind a Picnic Table Leg

Placing an egg close to the picnic table leg is even better if you are sitting around the table as your child may not think to search around where you are sitting.

In a Tricycle Basket

If your child has a tricycle or bike, place an egg in the basket or tucked behind a wheel.

Some other hiding places include tucking eggs behind large tufts of grass or in small holes in the lawn. Whilst your child is searching high and low in the flower borders, they won’t realise they have been walking round and round or even over the egg tucked in the grass.

 

To make the hunt more challenging, try to camouflage the egg with objects similar to the colour of the egg e.g. pink eggs with pink flowers, green eggs in the grass, brown eggs with plant pots etc. Good luck and let the Easter egg hunt begin!
