Adult Eggstravaganza

It’s April 1st!  Well, it was when I’d planned to publish this post.  Where did the time go?  Happy April Fool’s Day, but there ain’t no fooling going on around here.  Nope, I don’t play that!  🙂  

I’m sure at some point in life, we have all participated in an Easter egg hunt.  I can remember the joy of finding those colorful eggs and some plastic ones filled with prizes.  As a parent, I was able to see the joy on my children’s faces as they went on their search for the hidden eggs.  

Well who says the fun has to only be for kids?  Why can’t we adults have some fun, too? How many of you would like to participate in an egg hunt? I have put together some fun ideas that I think we will all enjoy!

Paper Egg Hunt:  Last year at work, our faculty participated in an egg hunt and it was so much fun.  Paper eggs were conspicuously placed around the school with numbers on them.  Once you turned your egg in and they found the one with the matching number, there were so many wonderful prizes awaiting you.  You may get to wear jeans for a week.  You may get to leave school early.  You may even get to win some cash.  It was a fun time seeing everyone searching for the eggs and the excitement to see exactly what you had won!


Spirited Egg Hunt:  There’s nothing like a little “spirit” to lift your spirits.  Mini bottle filled eggs.  Make sure you are at least 21 years old to participate in this egg hunt.  


Scavenger Hunt:  Grab your friends, and follow the egg-shaped clues to land yourself some awesome treats!  Create a list of items for teams to collect and the first team to make it to the finishing point gets rewarded!  The hunt could include retrieving the take-out menu to a local restaurant, the business card of a local realtor, a photo in front of a famous landmark, and the list goes on!  Create a list that relates to your city and just have some fun!

Amazing Race Hunt:  This is very similar to a scavenger hunt, but it’s based off the hit show.  So, there will be some roadblocks and pit stops along the way.  Don’t watch the show? You can learn more about it here.

Exercise Hunt:  If your city is like mine, there are health clubs/gyms popping up everywhere.  Speak with the managers of several centers within a 5 mile radius (trust me you can find at least 10 within this span)  and ask them if they will allow participants to come in to complete the task that awaits them on their list.  They must show proof by having someone video tape or snap a picture of them completing the task at each site.


Landmark Selfie Hunt:  Everyone loves taking selfies.  Make it more challenging by having everyone compete to complete their task within a certain time frame.  They must take a selfie of themselves at a certain designated location.  Make sure the clues are a little tricky to figure out, but the locations are close in range.

  1. These are such fun ideas! Love the sprited egg hunt, ha! And the paper egg hunt! I was at a wedding this weekend at a country club, and a group of people came rushing in and asked if the bride was there yet. We said yes and they said, “Okay, we are doing an Easter scavenger hunt and have to get a picture with the bride!” Too funny!


    1. We did the same this year with much smaller eggs. I had to improvise, due to rain, and did a paper hunt for my 2nd group of students. Hid them among 3 halls and they loved trading them in for prizes. Happy Easter!


  2. Ha ha ha ha ha! How fun! I’ve been trying to do a “non sentimental, fun, and unique” Easter post — lots of ideas in yours I wish I had thought of!! 🙂


  3. I love these ideas!! I want to go on one of your hunts!!
    Isn’t it amazing how kids can hunt down eggs, but they can’t find socks? 😀
    My kids found 42 eggs (some with money, so I guess that was a motivator) in less than 5 minutes.


    1. I have only done the ones at work, but want to talk to someone here in Charleston and ask them to sponsor one of the hunts I mentioned. I think it would be so much fun! I do believe that money is a big motivator for anyone!
