So maybe you’re not quite the spring chicken anymore, but it doesn’t mean you can’t organise your own Easter egg hunt for the adults in your life. This is a great way to get friends together or to have a networking event for colleagues or singles.
The Thrill For Adults
You would be surprised at how excited adults will become, whilst hunting for Easter eggs. There are a variety of games you can play, more strategic hiding of the eggs, and the prizes can get pretty outlandish. The cocktails are deviled as much as the eggs.
Announce Your Easter Egg Hunt
Choose adult-oriented invitations. Let’s face it, you received paper invites as a lad, so give the adults the same excitement of tearing into a piece of hand delivered mail, but with a more mature theme. When selecting the date, keep in mind that some adults might have young kiddies that will be hunting eggs on Easter Sunday, so try and make it the Saturday prior.
Adult Activities For Hunting Eggs
- Getting creative with Easter baskets or even an egg decorating station is a fun addition. Eggs can become unique with such genres as retro memories from your era or modernized with adult-oriented designs. You can bump up the prizes with gift cards to a local pub, the local adult toy store, or even the local hardware vendor. Have the one mystery egg that never gets found, turn up at the end in someone’s handbag. It’s a great way to boost the excitement when everyone is headed home.
- If you choose to have a scavenger hunt, plan ahead to write out the poetic clues for the hidden eggs. “An apple a day keeps the bunny doctor away.” This could lead to an Easter egg hiding in the fruit bowl. It could even be shaken up into Shakespearean dialogue.
- Dressing up in your Sunday best can lead to memories of how Mum would have dressed you for church on Easter. This could lead to a prize opportunity!
- You might recall the game where you guessed the number of jelly beans in the jar to win a prize. Get creative with something more sophisticated.
- Your location could add to part of the thrill. A reserved roller rink, a cemetery, or maybe an empty playground. If you agree to have rotting egg rubbish scattered throughout the garden, feel free to have it in your own garden.
- Find a musical theme that fits the crowd. You can go with all things about spring
and flowers blooming or songs of your youthful era. You may want to throw in a bit of children’s music for fun.
- You can have a more adult-oriented feast with a fancier menu, rather than having to stick with kid-friendly. Spring coloured cocktails are a must!
Tips On Cleaning After the Egg Hunt
Just be sure and keep a count and a diagram of where you have hidden the Easter eggs. You don’t want Sparky to find them a week later. If you are hiding them indoors, you especially want to have a diagram to avoid an unpleasant aroma in the air.
At the end of the day, all of the adults will behave like spring chickens once again, after reliving the thrill of participating in an Easter egg hunt.
Now, it’s your turn to organise the best Easter egg hunt ever! Just follow these tips.
