In our household, there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to Easter egg hiding places outside of the cardinal rule: Remember where you’ve hidden the eggs, because the last thing you want is to find a pink egg inside of a jacket pocket one month later!
It’s always nice to prep the house, both inside and out, before the egg hunt. We recommend mowing the lawn, making sure the yard, patio and house is mess free and primed for the egg hunt! Before you go about hiding eggs, it’s always nice to do a quick walkthrough and jot down all the places you’re planning on hiding eggs, so that you can do a similar walkthrough after the hunt to make sure all the eggs have been recovered. Finally, prevent little tots from getting too frustrated during the hunt by placing eggs in plain sight (across the lawn, on seats and tables, next to their favorite toys) so that every single little bunny can have a good time.
If you’re having a hard time thinking outside the box, here are a few creative ways to hide Easter eggs in the home. Get hiding and hop to it!
