Activities for Kids: Reverse Easter Egg Hunt

One of my favorite holidays to celebrate with the kids is Easter.

There are just so many fun Easter activities for kids that I thought I should start early.

This past week my kids and I had some Easter fun, we did a little activity I like to call reverse Easter egg hunting.

Well, in regular Easter egg hunts you search for the eggs that are already filled with goodies.

This is a real simple activity that my kids just loved! 

All you need to have your own reverse Easter egg hunt is a nice day and a dozen or so empty Easter eggs.

I gave the kids a few directions on what to fill their eggs with and set them free.

We gathered leaves, sticks, sand and seeds.

This activity can be fun for older kids too!

One way is to have them find colorfully things that match their eggs.

Finding Treasures

My kids were pretty proud of their findings and loved showing them off.

Once they filled one egg they would grab another and start the hunt all over again.

    Awesome idea, full of sunshine, fun, and very little cost. Love the idea you get the exercise for the little ones without all the sugary tooth candy too! Also, I am crazy about the idea as it works awesome for two special needs kids of ours! Novel idea, and perfect for ALL KIDS AND AGES and even Grandparents! We are going to leave 5 eggs in our trunk basket for our spring/summer outings. We can do this on any trip, to give a car break or when you have to wait somewhere with kids! Moms ROCK ! Thanks for letting us in on your secret, your share is just plain brilliant! Happy EASTER and family fun! We are headed out for the sunshine today!
