2. Easter Egg Hunt Tokens

Instead of filling your eggs with candy, fill them with tokens! When your kiddos find the eggs, they can save up their tokens to buy items you’ve purchased ahead of time that they can use in the coming months. This is a fun way to mix up the Easter egg hunts but also let you kids get ready for summer!

3. Color Hunt

Assign a color to each kiddo and have them search for that shade only. This is a great way to make sure kids get the same amount of eggs and perfect for little ones who aren’t quite fast enough to get a huge egg haul.
