Easter Egg Hunt

Easter Events Around the Valley

by Shea Homes Arizona on April 2, 2015

Aside from the goodies in the baskets on Easter morning and a stuffed bunny or two, kids love the traditional Easter Egg Hunt. Whether you’re planning to host a neighborhood egg hunt or a smaller version of one for your own family, you’re going to face the challenge of finding creative hiding places for those little treasure seekers.

One good rule of thumb when making preparations for the egg hunt is to list the hiding place of each of the eggs on a piece of paper so that they can be checked off as they’re found. Remember, when choosing spots to conceal eggs, always think of safety first.

There are several places you can hide Easter eggs indoors like, cereal boxes, in slippers, inside a piano, behind a photo, in a cookie jar, among stuffed animals, in between books on a bookcase, a toy box, and in between leaves in a potted plant.
