Gather your family and friends for an egg-cellent Easter weekend event!
An Easter egg hunt provides all the essential elements for a great holiday tradition: candy, competition and, most importantly, quality time together. To get the party hopping, we put together a checklist with some eggstra ideas your whole family can enjoy this Easter weekend.
Check out these clever ideas for egg fillers, decorations and simple snacks (grab a Chick-fil-A party platter to save time in the kitchen).
Get a hop on the basics:
- Gather Easter baskets and crinkle paper or Easter grass
- Purchase plastic, fillable eggs
- Fill plastic eggs with candy and other prizes. Personalized coupons and fun notes are also great egg fillers. Try these on for size!
- "This coupon is good for a movie night of your choice."
- "Grab a friend and bunny hop for 15 seconds."
- "Tell someone your ‘bunniest’ joke."
- Prepare snacks in advance
- Purchase a Chick-fil-A Fruit Tray or Garden Salad Tray and serve it in a decorative bowl or extra basket. Let us do the chopping to save you time!
- Chick-fil-A Grilled Chicken Cool Wraps are handy snacks for guests while they hunt for eggs.
- Set the table
- Gather flowers and greenery from your yard (or local flower shop) for a homegrown centerpiece.
- Organize and hide the eggs for an Easter egg hunt that's fun for all ages
- Organize plastic eggs and egg stuffers based on age groups (toddlers, kids and teens).
- Designate spots for each age group and hide eggs according to age ability level.
- Keep count of how many eggs you hide in each section to track coupon- and prize-winners. An added bonus, this step will help you from discovering mystery eggs in the weeks to come!
- Establish egg hunt ground rules like no pushing or opening the eggs until all eggs are found.
- Have fun!
Eggstra ideas to make your party pop:
- Make Bunny-Tail Trail Mix by combining the following:
- M&M candies
- Yogurt-covered raisins
- Honey-roasted peanuts
- Tiny marshmallows
- Egg-centuate your décor with an Easter theme:
- Cut out Easter shapes and string them together for a festive garland.
- Use the garland as a backdrop for a photo booth with props like bunny ears.
- Draw bunny footprints in chalk on your front walk to make a fun first impression.
- Create carrot-shaped silverware bundles by wrapping green plastic utensils in orange napkins.
Use this party-planning checklist to throw an Easter egg hunt that's fun for all! Invite others to join your eggs-cursion but make sure they know this event is BYOB - bring your own basket!
