Easter Egg Hunt Ideas and How to Plan an Easter Egg Hunt


Hop on over to Windy City Novelties and get stocked up on all of our egg-cellent Easter decorations and fun Easter extras so that you can host the ultimate Easter egg hunt this year!  We have everything you need to get ready for this springtime holiday.  This year you will have as much fun getting ready for the Easter holiday as you will when you celebrate.  Fill your shopping cart with all of our fabulous pastel colored Easter surprises for your baskets, Easter egg decorating kits, and springtime lawn decorations.  Shake off those winter blues because spring has sprung and it’s time to celebrate.  Windy City Novelties can help you get ready for any fancy and fun Easter activity.  Stock up on colorful plastic eggs that you can fill with tiny toys and treats or Easter Bunny costumes for the whole family.  Whether you are planning for a more traditional Easter egg hunt or are going to host a fun Easter Egg Roll, like they have done annually on the White House lawn for more than 100 years, then you have come to the right place.  If you need to get dozens or hundreds of eggs ready for the holiday, we can definitely handle your order. 

You will find everything you need here to fill your Easter baskets and delight children on this special springtime day.  If you are planning to entertain the whole neighborhood, your church congregation, or just your own family, Windy City Novelties can help you get stocked up, decorated, and ready for the fun to start.  Welcome the start of spring and warmer weather with a special outdoor hunt, but keep an indoor contingency plan in case it decides to rain.  You should have special prizes ready for the winners of your special Easter egg hunt and gamesMost important if you are planning to use real eggs—Keep a map!  Be sure to write down all the spots you decide to hide the eggs so that none of them get left behind to rot.  No one likes the smell of a rotten hardboiled egg!  Easter egg hunts are great family fun.  Get all the kids and parents to participate.  Dress them in their Sunday best and turn them loose in the yard or a local park to search for all those pretty pastel colored eggs.  Easter is here!  Let’s celebrate!

After you determine how many participants you are expecting for your event, you can decide whether you want to use plastic eggs or real hardboiled ones.  No matter the number of eggs you will need, Windy City Novelties can support your order.  If you have chosen to go the plastic route, you can choose from our Colorful Plastic Eggs, which will provide you with the perfect vessel for jelly beans, chocolate kisses, or perhaps some of our Spring Color Friendship Bracelets or Easter Bunny LED Jelly Rings.  This special Easter product comes with a dozen colorful plastic eggs that each measure 2 1/4 inches.  Our Marble Plastic Easter Eggs are a little bit fancier.  They come in an assortment of colors, including blue, green, purple, and others in packs of 12. They will be perfect for your Easter egg hunt and feature a cool marble effect on the plastic.  You can decorate either of these reusable plastic egg options with stickers, googly eyes, or even coat the outsides of the plastic shell with some simple glue and glitter to make them shine.  Just keep the edges clean so you can put the egg back together again when the glue dries without messing up your cool glitter effect.  If you want to skip the plastic and go straight for the real thing, Windy City Novelties has a couple of great egg dying kits you can choose from.  Our Easter Egg Coloring Kit will provide you with everything you need to create pretty pastel colored eggs for the holiday.  Each Easter Egg Coloring Kit comes with five different color tablets to dye eggs, a wax crayon to write a special message, 30 Easter peel and stick decals for easy decorating, a paint brush and egg dye to brush on paint, and a speckling sponge to sponge paint. The Easter Egg Coloring Kit also comes with a decorating pallet, six egg stands for drying, an egg dipper and two brushes.  It has everything!  We also have a great Easter Egg Tie Dye Kit that has everything you need to create a cool and colorful tie dye effect on this year’s Easter eggs.  It comes with five bright liquid color packets, six color droppers, 12 coloring bags, a work station coloring palette, six egg stands and a built in drying tray. 

Make it a family activity when you dye your eggs and then surprise them on Easter morning by hiding them all around your house or yard.  Organize a larger scale event that the whole community can participate in.   Set out some great prizes for the winner of your Easter activities and decorate this special space with our Easter Table Decorating Kit.  This great holiday decorating kit comes with 23 special pieces, including cutouts of springtime flowers and butterflies that you can strategically place around the table, along with some great stand-up pieces that range in size from 7 inches to 13 inches.  Secure them onto your table with tape if it happens to be windy so that you don’t accidentally lose any of these great decorations.  Reward your Easter egg winners with Plush Pastel Ducks they can add to their Easter baskets.  These cute little ducks measure approximately 6 inches tall and come in packages of a dozen.  Kids are sure to love these adorable little ducks, which come in an assortment of yellow, pink and blue.  Have participation prizes ready for everyone!  Our Pastel Mini Bubbles are great fun for all ages.  Each of these packs comes with a dozen mini plastic containers in an assortment of pastel colors that are filled with a soap bubble solution.  They come with bubble wands attached to the inside of the lid.
