An Indoor Easter Egg Hunt will keep the children happy, and might even mean you can laze on the sofa with a brew just a little bit longer..

Here’s How To Plan An Indoor Easter Egg Hunt
We’d recommend hiding between 7 to 10 eggs per child so that everyone has a fair chance of finding some. You could also use brighter coloured eggs for younger children to help them find them easier, and less obvious colours for the older children.
Here’s What You’ll Need:
- Mini chocolate eggs / chocolate lolly pops / small toys
- Baskets to carry the eggs in
- Clue signs and arrows
- And of course… a bunch of excited children!

Where To Hide The Eggs:
Depending on the size of your home, we’d recommend using either just the downstairs or just the upstairs areas. This will help to keep the hunt to a reasonable time and is safer for the little ones!
–– hiding spots for the younger ones:
- Behind blinds / Curtains
- Behind pillows and larger objects
- Under a table
- In shoes
- Behind chairs / sofas
–– hiding spots for older ones:
- Coat pockets
- Inside cups/teapots
- Inside pillow cases
- Inside vases/boxes
- Inside draws
Easter Egg Hunt Clues & Signs:
For an extra touch to your Easter egg hunt, you could add some signs with clues for the children. It’ll make the hunt even more exiting for them, and may help the hunt be over in reasonable time!
–– here’s some ideas for Easter egg hunt signs & clues:
- Arrows pointing towards the area the eggs are in
- Paper cards with clues and directions
- Clues inside plastic eggs
