4 Keys to a Safe and Successful Easter Egg Hunt

planning ahead // Ellen Wade on Thursday March 26, 2015

In just 10 short days, many people will be celebrating Easter.  As the unofficial start of Spring, this holiday can be a great way for your organization to reach out to the community.

One traditional Easter activity to host is an Easter egg hunt.  This type of event allows the community to come together in a safe and fun environment, as well as allows your organization to do some outreach in a non-threatening atmosphere. 

While this type of event is fun for the participants, proper planning is key to help ensure a safe event.  Consider these four main factors when planning an Easter egg hunt to help avoid potential safety concerns:

  1. Event Location – Whether you’re hosting the event on site at your facility or at an off-site location, make sure you pre-inspect the area for any concerns.  Check for spots that are uneven, holes in the ground or any other safety issues.
  2. Hiding Locations – While there’s a desire to make egg hiding spots difficult and challenging, make sure safety is the number one concern.  Hide eggs in locations that could not pose any danger to a child and are away from electrical outlets or breakable items.
  3. Use of Employees and Volunteers – Egg hunts can become chaotic with so much excitement among children. Utilize employees and volunteers to supervise the egg hunt and ensure that children remain in safe areas during the activity.
  4. Egg Contents – If your organization is using plastic eggs in your hunt, consider food allergies and choking hazards when selecting the egg contents.  And, while candy inside the eggs is always a crowd pleaser, if you’re looking for a few inexpensive non-candy items to use in the eggs, here is a great list.

Have fun with the community this Easter holiday by planning a great, and safe, event.
