You’ll love these super Easter egg hunts ideas for kids and adults. They’re a twist on the “tried and true” version and meant to dazzle and challenge your favorite Easter egg hunters no matter what their age.
Best Easter Egg Hunts Ideas for Kids and Adults
Easter brings out the best of fun and frivolity and one of the most fun activities kids of all ages like to engage in are Easter egg hunts. In fact, I remember the days of my own children rummaging throughout the yard and garden areas looking for color plastic eggs.
It was a joyous time for young and old–the youngsters squealing with delight when they found a filled egg.
You, too, can put on an Easter egg hunt with your own family–no matter the age. Check out these fun ideas:
1. Golden Egg Hunt
2. Follow the Bunny Tracks
If you loved following Leprechaun tracks, well, that Irish favorite has nothing on the Easter Bunny! Lay out these cute bunny feet and let your little egg hunters follow the bunny trail to their prize(s).
Egg Hunt Tip: Whether you buy pre-made bunny tracks or make them yourself, be sure to have enough to go the distance!

3. Night Hunt with Glow in the Dark Easter Eggs
Egg Hunt Tip: Glow-in-the-Dark paint dries on clear and glows brightly in the dark. However, to ensure that your eggs shine for a long time, make sure that you give the eggs plenty of sunlight prior to setting them out for the kids to find at night.
4. Scavenger Easter Egg Hunt
Everyone loves a good scavenger hunt. And, it’s even more exciting for Easter. Place a clue in the form of a picture, word clue or small item in each egg for the recipient to find.
Easter Hunt Tip: Short on time? Try preprinted Scavenger Hunt cards. Then play the game as you normally would.
5. Easter Activities Hunt
For this Easter Egg Hunt on slips of paper write down activities or tasks that must be completed before looking for another egg.
Egg Hunt Tip: This game is perfect for a variety of age levels. Just vary the tasks to challenge the age and skill of your Easter egg hunters.

6. Resurrection Easter Egg Hunt
Resurrection Easter Eggs are a great way to keep the Easter theme alive. Just fill the eggs with a variety of seasonal appropriate objects, bible verses, and/or activities surrounding the story of Jesus rising from the dead. Or you can buy pre-filled Resurrection Eggs with symbols, activities and more already included.
Egg Hunt Tip: This is one Bible story that can be shared again and again, year after year.
7. The Puzzler Easter Egg Hunt
Assign each child to an assigned colored egg to find. Then place inside each plastic egg a single puzzle piece. (Hint: You may even want to number the eggs 1-30, for example, for a 30 piece puzzle.) The idea is for each player to put their puzzle together once they’ve found all the pieces. For older kids, you can make it a timed event.
Egg Hunt Tip: Vary the puzzle for each color or match it for each child. That way, each player will have a puzzle that will pique their interest.
8. Fun-Filled Easter Egg Hunt
If you are running short of time, how about a bunch of pre-filled Easter eggs that you can simply hide and seek? There are so many options available but one thing is for sure, even the littlest egg hunters will be delighted with these goodies.
Egg Hunt Tip: Slip in a few money-filled eggs just for fun!
9. The Riddler Egg Hunt
I love the idea of giving the kids (young and old) clues to ponder. And, what better way than to offer them an egg-ceptional riddle egg hunt.
Egg Hunt Tip: This Easter egg hunt can be adjusted for the age of your participants. Just vary the riddle wording to challenge even the most ardent hunters.

10. Sensory Egg Hunt
Here’s another idea that I think is ingenious: a Sensory Egg Hunt. Each participant is given a printable sheet with information that encourages sensory tasks for egg they find. Egg hunters have to “check off” each task as they progress throughout the hunt.
