The Secret to
Easter Egg Hunting:
Once the eggs are all decorated, what could be more
fun than hiding and hunting for them?
sure to count all the eggs BEFORE you hide them so you know if you've
found them all when the day is done. Rotten Easter eggs aren't pleasant
to find later.
There are always sneaky spots to
hide eggs. If you are hiding them outside, putting one in a closed
mailbox (if it's not too close to a busy street!) or on top of a parked
car's tire can really stump your friends. Try perching eggs in the
limbs of smaller trees or shrubs, or at the edge of a flower bed or
potted plant (try matching the color to the flowers so the egg blends
in better). Hide them on windowsills or by the garden hose.
you are hiding indoors, you might want to use plastic eggs just in case
some go missing. You can decorate them with stickers and even fill them
with candy treats.
