How to Have an Easter Egg Scavanger Hunt for Adults

Easter egg hunts for adults are rapidly gaining popularity and there's no mystery why--egg hunts are fun, easy to plan, and adults often enjoy feeling like a kid again. Part of what distinguishes an Easter egg hunt for adults from one for children are the prizes that you put inside the eggs and the difficulty of finding them.

Step 3

Establish boundaries for where the hunt will take place. Communicate these boundaries later to your guests.

Step 4

Gather your plastic, ceramic, wooden and chocolate eggs and hide them in obscure places. While you might hide eggs in easier places for children, you should hide them in really challenging spots for adults. Hide them in pots and pans, behind books or under pillows.
