Planning an Easter Egg hunt in Queensland generally ends up with a basket full of melted and smooshed choccy eggs and with everyone holed up at home we've outlined some great ways to get the kids eggs-cited and outside in the backyard (off devices!) with these eggs-cellant Choc-free Easter ideas:

1. Easter Egg Puzzle or Lego Hunt

Instead of hiding chocolate eggs, opt for plastic reusable fillable eggs and place a puzzle piece of two in each of them. You kids will have to search high and low to find all the puzzle pieces which will mean plenty of time in the garden, and then figuring out how the pieces fit together. This also works well for Lego.

2. DIY Kinder Surprise

Create your own little Easter Kinder Surprise eggs by filling plastic reusable eggs with little toys and treats. Mix it up with a few chocolate-free treats like hair ties, temporary tattoos, a picture to colour, fluffy little chicks, fun erasers, an Easter joke and just about anything small and fun that fits inside an egg. Need some eggs & fillers? We've created a pack of 12 Eggs and 12 fun things to put inside that the kids will love!

3. Egg-citing Easter Treasure Hunt

Write out clues to lead them from one egg to another, all over the garden and inside the house. The clues can lead them to a room or a place where they will have to hunt for the next little clue hidden inside an egg. The end prize can be anything you like!

4. Egg-cellant Nature Scavenger Hunt

Similar to the treasure hunt, this fun game will have your little ones scrambling around to fill their Easter baskets with lots of different items from around the garden or around the home. This is lovely activity to do on a nature walk as a family and will even keep the older kids engaged.
