Tips for Extreme Easter Egg Hunts to Challenge Older Children


Have you been wondering how to make Easter Egg Hunts more challenging for your children? In this post, we'll share five tips to help you to create a challenging Easter Egg Hunt for your older children!  These tips are perfect for tweens, teens, or grown children. You may vary the difficulty level as you see fit.

1. Incorporate Indoor Hard-2-Find Easter Eggs

The Wonka Indoor Egg Hunt Hard to Find Eggs will help you take your Easter Egg Hunt to a new level. They have eggs that have built-in:
  • Suction cups,
  • Double-sided tape,
  • Strings, and
  • Flat edges
These eggs allow you to be very creative. For instance, the photo below shows that I stuck an egg with double-sided tape under our counter, placed an egg with a flat edge on top of a door, hung a hanging egg on my son's towel rack, applied a suction cup egg to a mirror in a hallway, and applied a section cup egg to a lamp in my husband's office.  These eggs are really awesome for increasing the challenge, especially if your children don't know that these eggs exist and wouldn't think to look in such creative places.



2. Incorporate Hard-2-Find Easter Eggs

The Wonka OutdoorHard to Find Eggs are fun to use outdoors. They have trendy eggs that blend into our terrain, including:
  • Rocks,
  • Tulips,
  • Ladybugs, and
  • Green eggs to blend with grass and trees
We place these in trees, grass, bushes, and flowers. This is especially fun if your children have never seen these types of eggs before!



3. Make it a race

"Ready, Set, Go!" Let your children race to find the most eggs. The winner receives a special prize and bragging rights. The winner also gets to pick what we eat for breakfast


4. Make it a GPS Egg Hunt

Create an Easter Egg Hunt that uses GPS and scavenger hunt clues. Give clues that make the eager hunters creatively solve problems in order to find the locations of eggs.  The level of difficulty is easy to adjust based on the age of your children. You may even want to get multiple families involved for extra competition!

5. Make it a Haunted Egg Hunt

Move your Easter Egg Hunt to evening and wrap the eggs in glow sticks. This may be done indoors or outdoors. We live against forest, so we keep our haunted egg hunt indoor to be safe, but I am sure that this varies based on where you live. In any case, this is one of my son's favorite activities!



Of course, you could combine multiple tips above to make an over-the-top Extreme Easter Egg Hunt!
