How fun would it be for kids to receive a note from the Easter Bunny explaining the rules for an Egg Hunt! My boys love a good Easter Egg Hunt with colorful eggs, candy, and running around outside, what’s not to love? But in our house, sometimes the hunt ends in tears, usually with my youngest complaining that “It’s not fair” because his big brother found more eggs! Please tell me my kids aren’t the only ones whining on Easter?? This year, I decided to make rules for our annual Egg Hunt in an effort to try and keep things “fair.” Yes, Yes I know life isn’t always fair, but on Easter in my house I want to pretend it is:) I’ll teach them about fairness on another non-holiday, so my family can have a fun, peaceful time. As a mother I’ve learned to pick my battles, and Easter Egg Hunts won’t be one of them. As an added bonus, I have created a FREE PRINTABLE NOTE FROM THE EASTER BUNNY EXPLAINING ALL THE RULES.
Easter Egg Hunt Rules to Keep Kids Happy
I’ve found that the best way to keep kids happy and avoid complaining on Easter is to create an Egg Hunt where the child can only find one of each type of egg: One pink, one blue, one green with stripes etc. This does require a bit of extra planning on my part, but in order to avoid tears I’m willing to put in some extra effort. I have two boys so when stuffing eggs I make sure there are only two of each color/size of an egg. For example, two yellow eggs in different sizes are fine because they aren’t exactly the same. Then, I count up the total number of eggs. Each child should find the same number because they aren’t supposed to collect any that match.
The kids will need to know that when they are outside collecting eggs, they must not put one in their basket, if it matches an egg they have already found. Children will have to use their brains and search their baskets to make sure they don’t have any repeats. We have created a game and made the Easter Egg Hunt last longer too! My boys usually find all their eggs in 5 minutes, so having an extra step will stretch out the fun.
