10. “My husband’s parents would tie the end of a ball of yarn to the basket, then weave the whole ball around the house. Under tables, through rooms and closets, sometimes out windows and through flower beds. Once the ball of yarn was unraveled, they tied the end to a toilet paper tube and gave it to the kid.”

9. “We always hid the kid’s baskets. In the dryer [….] It was always fun. Out of the kids, one would always be very difficult to find. No one could go through their basket until everyone had theirs.”

7. “Around that age, my dad used to draw a very detailed map of a room and draw Xs to mark each spot where easter treasures were hidden. It was super fun! My sibling and I each had a different assigned room/map so we weren’t stepping on each other’s toes. My toddler is too young to understand a map like that this year, so I’m going to ‘hide’ the Easter gifts in colourful tissue paper visible in various places across the lawn & garden, which can then be ‘discovered’ and collected into an Easter basket!”

6. “The basket wasn’t hidden, it was empty and all the chocolate is hidden. So you fill your basket as you find stuff along the hunt. This is what we have continued with our kids. Weather depending, the hunt is outside.”

5. “My mom would hide my half-full basket and leave [an] egg trail. I have much more kids than my mom so we give our kids each [an] Empty basket and hide candy everywhere with a named bunny hiding in various degrees of difficulty depending on how old the kid it’s for is. If you can’t fit anything in the basket [you’re] done and get to enjoy some treats or lunch while the others hunt.”

4. “Our baskets were always hidden and they had our first egg in them for the egg hunt. That way my parents could hide the eggs around the house and we wouldn’t know which color we were getting until we found our basket. We also had a competition for finding the most hard boiled eggs, but that stopped after one went missing for 9 months before we found it. For my wife and I the biggest difference was my family always hid eggs inside, while her family always did their hunts outside.”

3. “When I was a kid, eggs hidden, basket was left in front of bedroom door so that we would wake up, find it and play with the toys and let mom and dad sleep in or prepare breakfast.”

2. “Our baskets were [homemade] and on the kitchen table. My mom is super extra with the crafts so she made ours out of melted chocolate that she wove around a bowl to make a basket and filled it with treats.”

1. “My family [organizes] an egg hunt, it’s very fun! We hide the eggs/chocolates in the garden (or the living room if it’s raining) while the kids are distracted somewhere else in the house…When all the eggs are hidden, we use a bell as a warning that the Easter Bells came and left something. Every kid [takes] a basket, a bag, any container and [goes on to] hunt those delicious candies. When the basket is full, they take it to the table and go look for more. The trick for the adults is to steal [the baskets] discreetly from the table or directly in the baskets the eggs to hide them again, or the hunt would last only 5 minutes (and to convince the older kids to play along and don’t ruin the fun for the youngest, that’s pretty hard sometimes with those pre-teens!) Finally, when every piece of candy is found and brought back to the table, we [divide] the loot evenly between the kids. There’s chocolate for the adults too! It’s fun for the kids, and it’s way more fun when you grow up and are allowed to hide the eggs.”
