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.
Dyeing & Decorating Easter eggs
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:
- 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.
- Need some more ideas? Ridgedale Center has a few egg-dying videos, plus crafts and activities to do at home.
- Buy ceramic eggs from Color Me Mine (Eagan, Woodbury or Maple Grove): Choose your colors and return your finished pieces for glazing. ($60/dozen; $35/half-dozen)
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?
The Best Custom Easter baskets
Help support local small businesses during this tough season by ordering your own custom Easter baskets.
- GoodThings (White Bear Lake): Choose a colorful basket and stuff it with goodies. They’ll ship or deliver right to the trunk of your car.
- kiddywampus (Hopkins/Chanhassen): Find stuffed bunnies and Easter books.
- Soderberg’s Floral & Gift (Minneapolis): Offers treat-and-trinket filled baskets for kids & adults.
- Color Me Mine (Eagan or Woodbury): Bunny-shaped basket with ceramic bunnies and peeps and unfired paints to decorate them.
- Mischief Toy Store (St. Paul): Customized baskets with free local delivery.
- Pacifier (Multiple Twin Cities locations): Cute baskets and fun kids toys, books & clothes to stuff in them.
- The Textile Center is offering beautiful handmade pieces by local artists – felted spring animal stuffies, handmade bunny ornaments and DIY kits for making your own textile art.
Longfellow Park’s Spring Break Eggsperiment Kit: A take home kit that will include supplies and instructions for a variety of science and egg activities.. Register to pick up a kit on Friday, April 2nd between 4 and 6 pm. $5 Minneapolis residents, $7.50 non-residents.
