Due to the pandemic, my oldest daughter and I are planning an Egg Hunt & More for the grandchildren. The more part means that it’s sort of a continuing party with two other events and also a pizza lunch. The whole thing takes around 2 hours. Except for the pizza lunch, the hunt and events will happen on my front lawn.
I will open up my garage and set up tables and chairs there. My husband will be going off to get the pizza. The location for this may change to the front yard.
We are buying about 3 dozen plastic eggs to be filled with candy and trinkets. We will provide baskets. Due to the differing ages of the children, we have decided to get a permanent marker and write the initial of each child’s first name on their designated eggs. For example, S would be for Susan. This makes it a bit more challenging to find only the eggs that are theirs and also the trinkets and candy enclosed will be safe for that child. Running is not necessary as this isn’t a contest for who gets the most.
Following the egg hunt, we will all be putting on our bunny ears and doing the Bunny Hop dance to music. (I really hope to video this.)
After that will be storybook time. Adult characters will be acting out the story as it is read to the laughter of all. A plush woodland creature will be handed out to all children.
I haven’t decided yet, but we may do a game after this. It depends on when my husband arrives with the pizza.
Then it’s pizza time, where we will take our seats and laugh, chat, and eat in a pandemic safe environment.
If you are thinking of planning a children’s event, I hope this helps. Enjoy!
