Burn Off That Easter Candy Energy!

If there’s one thing I love, it’s messing with and keeping my kids on their toes! Last Easter, I put these printable calisthenics in their plastic easter eggs. Grandparents, aunts and uncles spoil them with Easter baskets full of sugar, sugar, sugar! So instead of buying even more sugar to put in the Easter egg hunt, I did this instead! My 3 daughters and my niece and nephew were opening their eggs, like whaaaaat is going on?!

All the adults at Easter brunch were laughing their butts off and the kids were giggling as they were doing burpees, jumping jacks and bunny hops! They were wincing in anticipation as they cracked open the next egg, ohhh no what’s this one going to be?! I knew at that point, this would definitely be happening again next year. We all enjoyed it so much, I wanted to share it with you all. So here it is…

Easter Egg Hunt

I’m providing this freebie, printable Un’egg’spected Easter Egg Hunt in two versions. I’ll send you both.

The first, I have pre-printed intervals to make it super easy for you. However, if your kids are much younger or older and you’d like to adjust the intervals down or up, print out the blank version (without the intervals). For the second version, just hand write on each square the quantities. That leads me to my next tip, which I’m excited to be trying out this year!

For Families with Varying Kids’ Ages

Because I know you’ve experienced this. You open up the backdoor to have the kids run out to find their eggs and the big kids steal all of the easy-to-find ones from the littles, before they even know what’s going on! You have to holler at the bigger kids to put some back and go find the harder-to-find ones.

And so, I saw this idea to assign a different color Easter egg to each kid. Genius! Not only does it solve that problem but I think it brings a whole different element to the bigger kids’ strategy!

Of course, there are additional benefits, too. Such as, all of these calisthenics will be evenly distributed. Also, based on the physical abilities of each kid, you can customize the intervals they need to do.

To make this easier, here are some color coordinated baskets and eggs to assign each kid. Each freebie, printable Easter egg hunt has 25 squares so if you want to print one page for each kid, be sure to get a pack with 25 of each color Easter eggs.

Already have Easter baskets to reuse? Instead, opt for color coordinated grasses to differentiate their assigned colors. Collect these baskets and eggs back from all kids, so you can reuse for the following year.

More Tips for Your Easter Egg Hunt

I like to give the uncles, dads and grandpas the eggs to go hide in the backyard, while everyone’s arriving and enjoying their first mimosa before my Easter brunch buffet is set out. (If you haven’t seen my post on The Best Juices for Mimosa Bar and recipe to our family’s famous Espi’mosa, definitely check that out next!) This is a super fun way to get the whole family involved and it’s one less thing I need to remember; where did I put those last 2 missing eggs? Lastly, don’t forget to have them count the eggs too before they hide them, so your dog doesn’t go Easter egg hunting the next day!

Secondly, do not pass up my post, the 4 Part Guide to Host Easter Brunch Stress Free Every Year! There are tons of must see brunch party ides to make your life easier, year after year, after year. Inside, you’ll also find the most CRAZY delicious brunch recipe that only takes 10 minutes! I guarantee you and your guests will make it from here on out.

If you live in the Chicagoland area or the Midwest, you will appreciate this one… It’s so nice to have the hunt outdoors, even if it’s chilly! Appreciate the first signs of Spring! Worst case, have a back-up plan for where you want the guys to hide the Easter eggs indoors.

Finally, bonus points for extra laughs: did your pack of color coordinated Easter eggs leaves you with an extra color? (Mine does! Shhhh!) Throw one of the adults under the bus! Add another printout to a few eggs for them, or here are a few ideas for adult Easter egg fillers.

The Golden Egg Prize Ideas

It’s up to you, and likely dependent on if you opted to color coordinate eggs with each kid, whether or not you want to stuff 1 Golden Egg, or if each kid gets their own Golden Egg. Or, skip it entirely! If you do include it, here are some different ideas for prizes that take no preparation and a few that you’ll need to grab in advance! To make it even easier, I’ve included links to the golden egg, cute yard stake signs, and prizes so you can just click and add it to your cart.
