How to Plan an Easy and Fun Easter Egg Hunt Indoors

 Although Easter is not about bunnies and candy, it is a special tradition to add to the occasion. Candy filled baskets, stuffed bunny animals, and colorful boiled eggs are memories no kid would ever forget during the Easter Holiday .  In this post I share how to plan an Easter egg hunt indoors.


Growing Up, Easter Sunday consisted of going to church, (dressed in our best Sunday clothes), participating in the church easter egg hunt, and heading over my grand mothers house to eat easter dinner. Easter was the only holiday, outside of Halloween, that we could eat lots of candy, get fun gifts, and play games.

I absolutely loved when I would wake up to a huge easter basket filled with things I enjoyed. But my favorite memories will always be the easter egg hunt; and now that I have children of my own I plan to make even more memories they’ll never forget.

 6 Steps to Planning an Easter Hunt at Home

Step 1: Clean Your Space

 The very first step to the perfect Easter egg hunt is to always make sure your home is cleaned and safe for your little ones to run and explore.

During Easter egg hunts children are usually running and jumping looking for every single egg they could possibly find. Be sure to move furniture around to make clear paths for less injuries and mishaps during Easter hunt at home.

Step 2: Gather Your Easter Egg Hunt Items

For step two you’ll need: Plastic Easter Eggs, Variety Sorted Candy, Easter Baskets, and Non-Candy Items.

Be sure to check each Easter egg to make sure they close and open properly, as some eggs may be irregular. Also pick your child’s favorite candy that is small enough to fit inside the eggs. Don’t forget to make sure you have an Easter basket for each child to have their own.

Step 3: Fill the Eggs with Fun Treats

It’s Time to fill the Eggs! Open each egg and place the candy or non-candy item inside and close securely.

Note: if you have children with food allergies, you can add non-candy items to fill each egg. . To add an elements of surprise, you can also fill eggs with  non-candy items according to the child’s gender.

Step 4: Separate The Eggs By Color

To make sure each child gets the same number of eggs, separate the eggs into colors and list which color eggs belong to each child.

Separating the eggs also helps to make sure children with food allergies don’t get things they can not eat and smaller children don’t get candy they could potentially choke on.

Step 5: Plan Hiding Spots

This is my favorite step! I love to have scavenger hunts with my children, so I find picking hiding spots to be so much fun.

For older children you can get really creative with hiding Easter eggs. You can also add clues in the eggs that possibly lead to other eggs and then a grand prize.

Step 6: Have Fun!

Have Fun! This is a great way to bond with your family at home, make sure you’re mentally present in making this an Easter egg hunt no one will ever forget.
