The Definitive Guide to Twin Cities Easter Egg Hunts in 2023

Easter egg hunts & activities in the Twin cities

Grab your baskets and get ready for the hunt! Easter is Sunday, April 9th in 2023. You’ll find the majority of events are on the Saturday before or one week earlier.  Easter egg hunts are one of the most fun parts of spring for families with young children. Here is a list of Twin Cities egg hunts that are happening this year. We highly recommend pre-registering when given the option so you can get updates from the source.

If you know of an event — free or paid — that you’d like to see added, please drop us a line via our contact form or just add a comment at the bottom of this article, and we will share with the community. Thanks! And check back often, as we will we be adding egg hunts to this list until Easter is upon us.

DIY Egg Hunts: Tips for the best egg hunt ever!

I feel like we’ve been spoiled living in the Twin Cities. We have always had so many options for egg hunts that I haven’t really had to do the work myself. If you are looking for some ideas on where to hide your own Easter eggs, I have found two articles full of clever ideas plus a few of our own. Get creative with color by concocting your own Easter egg dyes or using alternate materials.

At Home:

Coloring and decorating your eggs is half the fun. Can’t get out shopping for egg dye kits? Food coloring with vinegar works well. Or, for a fun science experiment, try using natural materials for eye-popping hues:

  • Buy ceramic eggs from Color Me Mine (Eagan, Woodbury or Maple Grove): Choose your colors and return your finished pieces for glazing. ($65/dozen).
  • Wrap eggs with yellow or red onion skins, then boil for 30 minutes to make a pretty egg dappled with natural color.
  • Raid your spice cupboard: turmeric makes a gorgeous golden color. Chili powder makes a rusty orange. The site Itsy Bitsy Foodies will share the recipe and more ideas for creating a rainbow of Easter eggs.
  • Homemade Holidays: Easter Crafts – Lisa from Heartfelt offers ideas for coloring your own eggs.
  • Need some more ideas? Ridgedale Center has a few egg-dying videos, plus fun crafts and activities to do at home.

If you blow out the eggs beforehand, they can be keepsakes for years to come. Follow these tips to blow out an egg and make it hollow before dyeing.

Where to Hide Your Easter Eggs

From experience, I recommend creating a map or a list of hiding places so you know you’ve gotten all the eggs at the end. This is particularly important if you are hiding real eggs indoors.

  • If you want to be fancy, you could give the map to your kids and let them use their map-following skills to find each egg.
  • You could also do it scavenger hunt style with clues to the next egg hidden with each egg – maybe end with an Easter basket full of candy?

Around the net: Mum’s Grapevine offers these 50 hiding spot ideas, sorted by difficulty. The Plumed Nest has 20 Ideas for Easter egg hunts that go beyond the basic.

The Best Custom Easter baskets in the Twin Cities

    1. You are so right, Leo! Egg hunts would aid in cognitive development of children in the same way scavenger hunts do. But also they are just fun and usually come with candy.

    Is there anywhere that does adult easter egg hunts? My mother passed away on March 16th this year and she wanted to do an easter egg hunt for adults since in Missouri that past 2 years she participated. Our family would love to continue on this tradition, just wondering if Minnesota has one??

  4. Hi, I can’t seem to locate the event MARCH 27, 2021: ROSEMOUNT LIONS CLUB SPRING EGG HUNT | AMES SOCCER COMPLEX, ROSEMOUNT, not on the Rosemount link, their facebook pg or website. Do you have a direct link to the event, thank you!

    1. Hi Diane:
      It is in the “Parks and Recreation Activities and Information Brochure” PDF that is at the link we provided. There does not appear to be pre-registration available. You just need to show up during your alphabetical time slot.

  5. Would love to add the Easter Eggstravaganza at Colonial Church in Edina. April 16, 10am-12pm. Celebrate Easter weekend with this festive outdoor gathering full of activities for all ages, featuring the Easter bunny, egg hunts, a giant inflatable slide, a petting zoo, crafts, games, and an Egg Roll Food Truck! This event is free for everybody, so invite your friends + family!

    Thank you.

  6. What a great list! Resurrection City Church is hosting a Community Easter Egg Hunt in Newell Park in Saint Paul (900 Fairview Ave N, St Paul, MN 55104). Kids aged 1-12 can join us for an open house style egg hunt. Come anytime between 10am-12pm, check-in when you arrive, decorate a bag for your eggs, and then search for a specific color of egg based on age. Ages 1-3 will be in a smaller, blocked off area, and there will be allergy-friendly eggs as well.

      1. Thank you for letting us know you are looking for allergy-friendly eggs, Amy. If you are looking, it is likely others are, too. Now, we can know to look for them to share.


    Easter Drive Thru in Excelsior

    Families from around the west-metro area are invited to an Easter Drive Thru in the Our Savior Lutheran Church & School parking lot (23290 Highway 7 in Excelsior) on Saturday, April 16 between 9:00-12:00pm. This event has replaced the Community Easter Egg Hunt that used to be held at the Excelsior Commons.

    Please pre-register at Excelsior Egg Hunt dot com and choose a 30 minute period to arrive. This is a free event with pre-registration, and is sponsored by Our Savior Lutheran Church & School.

    Kids should bring their Easter baskets along to hold eggs and other special treats while remaining in their vehicle. See the Easter story unfold with colorful scenes from Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and the resurrection of Jesus on Easter Sunday. Your child will receive additional eggs for an at-home Easter egg hunt and extra eggs to share the Easter joy with others.

    The event also features special guests, including the bunnies from Peacebunny Island and Sparky and the Excelsior Fire Department.
