Putting small papers with directions like “Do a Fortnite dance” or “Do an animal impression” in the eggs sounds fun. They will get everyone to be more active and have even more joyful Easter moments.

17. Confetti-filled eggs

Giving the kids eggs filled with confetti can make them a bit of fun before the real game begins. They can act as a small pinata that can be cracked easily. Furthermore, you can put little treats like M&Ms or small candies inside them.

Willy Wonka’s idea to create golden tickets for his lucky consumers is such an inspiration. You can also put a golden ticket in one of the Easter eggs and let the finder redeem it for a special prize.

19. Winner trophies

Even though the treats are the main attraction for the kids, giving them cute trophies as a bonus will make them feel like a winner. Moreover, the kids might also be more enthusiastic about achieving something more significant in their life after getting such an achievement.

20. Paper decoration

Cutting pieces of paper into the shapes of rabbit, carrot, and egg can give you small decorations to use. These paper decorations can be placed throughout the yard using glue to guide the kids to the Easter eggs.

Place to Hide Easter Egg in Home

Keeping the Easter egg hunt from getting boring can also be done by hiding the eggs in unusual places. Use your creativity to find new and unexpected hiding spots every year. By doing so, the Easter egg hunt will be more challenging. If last year you made the kids play the Easter egg hunt outside, you might want to consider doing it indoors this year.  If you need help, don’t worry. We already listed our favorite indoor Easter egg hunt ideas below.

1. Inside a tissue box

A tissue box can also turn into a right hiding spot for the Easter eggs. Just put one egg in it, and let a tissue stick out to make the hiding spot less obvious.

2. Inside a bag of pet food

If you own a pet, you may also hide the Easter egg inside the package of your pet’s food. However, you need to put the pet food in a safe place, so the pet doesn’t find the egg first.

3. Inside a Dollhouse

Some kids have a dollhouse in their homes. The idea of hiding an egg in it can also work with Lego castles and any other similar toys.

4. Inside the Microwave

A microwave is not only useful to cook Easter foods, but it can also make a great Easter egg hiding spot. However, make sure to unplug its cord in advance to make sure it’s safe for kids.

5. Inside an empty coffee can

Since most kids don’t drink coffee, they often overlook coffee cans that are lying around their homes. This makes anything related to the coffee a decent spot to hide an Easter egg, including the box of K-cups.

6. Inside one of the kids’ backpack

Since kids are often on Spring Break during Easter, they probably won’t be opening their backpacks for at least a few days. It makes backpacks a clever hiding spot for the Easter eggs. However, if you use a real egg, make sure it’s found, or the kids will have smelly backpacks when the break is over.

7. Inside shoes and boots

Shoes and boots can be a great hiding spot. The more people participate in the Easter egg hunt, the more difficult it is to find one egg (or few) among their shoes. Also, for kids, shoes are easy to get to.

8. Behind the blinds and curtains

Sometimes, the best way to hide something is to put it in plain sight. Blinds and curtains are great examples. They might not be a perfect place to put something round like eggs, but they can trick people. Most people won’t check the curtains the first time they get inside the house.

9. Among stuffed animals

Stuffed animals can also be a great hiding spot for Easter eggs, especially when there are lots of them. Make sure that the color of the egg blends well with the stuffed animals. Or even better, make the stuffed animals look like they’re holding the egg.

10. Inside the mailbox

If the Easter egg hunt is being held outside, the mailbox can be a considerable hiding spot. To make it even more tricky, you can put a few newspapers and magazines inside to cover the eggs.

11. Inside toilet roll

Although it’s easy to reach, the toilet roll can make a decent hiding spot. Many people often overlook this spot when they try to find something, and that makes the toilet roll a not-so-obvious hiding spot.

12. Under the stairs

Hiding something to find under the stairs is not too difficult, but it’s not too obvious either. This makes the space under the stairs an ideal Easter eggs hiding spot for all ages.

13. Inside the fruit basket

If the colors of the eggs are similar to the colors of the fruits you currently have, you can consider this idea. Put the egg that fits the tone of fruit in the fruit basket. Also, if you use real eggs, you can choose to dye some of them to look like a fruit.

14. Inside the lampshade

Hiding the Easter eggs underneath a lampshade is also a viable alternative. However, it would be best if you unplugged the cord for safety before replacing the lightbulb with an egg.

15. Among decorative stuffs

Having a bookshelf full of books and other decorative items to display can give you an advantage. The more stuff you have in the bookshelf, the more difficult the egg to get noticed.

16. Inside cereal box

A cereal box can be a tough hiding spot to find. So, unless it’s placed in an open area, the kids might spend all day trying to find the last egg.

17. In high but reachable places

Putting the eggs in high places can encourage kids to work together and be creative. Not only it hones their problem-solving skills, but it can also make them cooperate well with each other.
