The tradition of egg hunts dates back to the 1800's when it became customary in communities to incorporate some activities for children into the religious customs taking place.
Today it is impossible to imagine Easter without hunting for coloured eggs.
Whether you are preparing and decorating your own easter eggs with your children, or planning on using chocolate or plastic eggs, it is important to ensure your children have their decorated baskets to put their eggs in.
If the weather is warm enough hide the eggs outside early in the morning. If not, while your kids are still sleeping or eating breakfast, hide the eggs around your house.
Once they are done eating, pick up their baskets and get the egg hunt celebration started.
