How to Make the Hunt Easier or More Difficult


Alexandra Hedin Easter Egg DesignsAlexandra Hedin Easter Egg DesignsHiding eggs for a range of ages can be challenging. Where a twelve-year-old can easily find almost anything, a three year old needs them a bit more obvious. If you have a range of ages all at the same place for Easter then the challenge really starts. How do you make sure the youngest guests get eggs but that the oldest ones still have a challenge? This year I created two different egg "disguises" to make sure everyone had fun. This takes a little more effort, but is a fun project for everyone to help with.

Very Obvious Eggs

You'll need:

12 plastic eggs

Assorted colors of glitter

Thick white glue (such as Martha Stewart Glittering Glue)

Small paint brush

Bowl

Spoon

Step 1: Separate one egg and coat with glue using the paint brush.

Step 2: Pour 1/4 cup of glitter into a bowl and dip egg into glitter. Use spoon to ensure an even coat of glitter

Step 3: Let dry with pieces apart

Camouflage Eggs

You'll need:

12 plastic eggs

Thick white glue (such as Martha Stewart Glittering Glue)

Small paint brush

Dirt, sheet moss, leaves

Directions:

Step 1: Separate one egg and coat with glue using the paint brush.

Step 2: If using dirt, roll egg in dirt coating completely. Push dirt on with your fingers to ensure the entire egg is coated.

If using moss, cut sheet moss to fit the egg and press firmly onto glue. Hold 30 seconds to create a bond.

If using leaves, coat the back of each leaf with glue using the paint brush. Press each leaf individually on the egg and hold to create a bond. Coat the tops of the leaves with glue too.

Step 3: Let dry with pieces apart

Happy hunting!
