Planning an Easter Egg hunt in Queensland generally ends up with a basket full of melted and smooshed choccy eggs but there are plenty of other ways to get the kids eggs-cited, outside and active with these eggs-cellant Choc-free Easter ideas:

1. Easter Egg Puzzle 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.
