Easter Egg hiding pro tips

50 places to hide Easter eggs

  • Keep an inventory of how many and where eggs are hidden. Nobody wants to be sitting in melted chocolate in two weeks time.
  • If you’ve got kiddos of different ages, hide the eggs at different heights so they all have a chance to find some. Or colour-code the eggs, so each child can only take the eggs for their age group.
  • Leave clues for some of their trickier hiding spots (use the gorgeous Easter hunt printables from hello, Wonderful pictured below) or leave a letter from the Easter Bunny with a treasure map.
  • Not every egg has to be chocolate – use plastic eggs to hide other treats like movie tickets or coupons for fun adventures.
