Bob loves Easter and she is very excited about the Easter Bunny visiting. We have had an Easter egg hunt since she was tiny and always try to find some fun Easter days out.

Easter is one of the most important Christian festivals of the year and is often greatly looked forward to by children and adults alike for the chocolate eggs and egg hunts.

In the UK, people plan a broad range of fun-filled activities on Easter day, for example, last year, several exciting activities were planned throughout the country, with a large amount of the country participating in them. If you are also planning to throw a nice dinner party or thinking about organising an Easter hunt, you should start preparing for it in advance as they can often grow into much larger events very quickly.

Here’re are some interesting tips, brought to you by York Timber Products, for hosting an Easter party.

Finalise the Time in Advance

When it comes to planning an Easter egg hunt, the first thing that you need to decide is the time. Since all the people have their own plans for this festival, you need to finalise a perfect time to organise an Easter egg hunt so that people can easily participate in it.

Having everyone involved is part of what makes the event fun, missing out a few of your family and friends due to poor time management can affect the day.

Organise the Egg Hunt in Your Garden

If you have a beautiful garden, make sure that you plan your Easter egg hunt in it so that you can hide the eggs in various places and take advantage of the space.

Think of places to hide the eggs, not just in the plants but places such as a garden shed or other gardening storage.

Ensure that all of it is properly vetted with any potentially harmful equipment properly stored away to avoid any accidents.

Sort out Prizes

No Easter Egg Hunt is final without prizes for the winners and runners up, driving competition between everyone involved. Giving out prizes for specific gathering tasks can also be fun, such as collecting a certain amount of eggs all the same colour or the most individual colours, providing some variety to the event. Prizes such as chocolate or toys are a good, low cost option for an Easter egg hunt party.

Providing Snacks & More Activities

It’s a good idea to treat your Easter egg hunt preparation like a party, providing snacks and meals with other activities to do alongside. This ensures that everyone is involved in some way rather than just the children.

Usually at most Easter egg hunt parties, there are other activities that everyone can get involved in while the hunt for eggs is on. Adding these will allow for a lot more children to get involved and not feel left out.

Activities such as, Egg and Spoon race and Egg decorating, all of which are quite simple to arrange with the items you already have if you’ve setup an Easter egg hunt. Placing these around the house so that not all games are put into one corner gives you the best chance for a successful Easter party.

See how companies such as York Timber Products can help you with your garden so that when these kinds of events come around, you’re prepared and have the space available to host.
