The leaves might not have made their way back on to the tree branches yet but it’s not too early to begin thinking about Easter parties. The candy and time spent with family makes Easter one of my favorite days of the year. Last year I tried an idea that was a huge hit. We threw an egg decorating party with a little bit of a twist.
First you’ll need to find decorative eggs. These can usually be found at supermarkets and craft stores. Get enough eggs so that each guest can have one. Some of these packs come with paint and decoration supplies but you might need to get your own. I like using watercolors and last year we used craft glue to put glitter and little plastic jewels on the eggs.
Once you have the supplies, let the guests decorate their eggs while you play some music and serve finger foods. When the eggs have been decorated and all the guests have had their fill of hors d’oeurves, have everyone hide their egg in the backyard or around the house.
At this point I should mention that last year one of the kids thought it would be funny to hide his egg in the jewelry box I keep in my bedroom. First of all, no one could find the egg and I didn’t appreciate him rooting around in my things so be sure and establish boundaries. Make the eggs hidden but not impossible to find. It’s also nice to mix in the regular plastic eggs filled with candy among the fancy decorated eggs.
When all of the eggs have been found, figure out who found each other’s eggs. Each person should say something nice about the person whose egg they found. This is a great way of bringing your family and friends together for a fun activity that is also uplifting and encouraging.
This fun little spin on the traditional Easter egg hunt is sure to be a hit with adults and children!
