I don’t know how Easter has been for most of you but growing up in Texas, every Easter of my childhood had at least a few hours of torrential rain. But even if the rain makes it impossible to venture outside this Easter, there is still no reason you can’t have an Easter egg hunt. You just have to get a little creative and have one indoors. I have to say I was pretty impressed with some of what they came up with and I figured I would share the list with you, just in case you were having trouble figuring out where to hide all those eggs.

25 Indoor Hiding Places

Before we continue, I’d like to remind you it is also a good idea to keep an inventory of all the eggs hidden. You don’t want to move a piece of furniture six months from now and accidentally crack open a wayward egg.

Remember, when choosing spots to conceal eggs, always think of safety first, as well as personal privacy. Don’t place Easter eggs in an area that could be hazardous to children, and do your best not to violate anyone’s personal space – especially if children outside of the family are involved in the hunt.

Easter is many things for many people. But did you ever think that it was also a way to shore up your own preparations and also a good way to get your children involved? Here are 3 reasons why you should join a survival group.

Think about it for a minute. Easter is the one holiday out of the year where you spend your time trying to find THE BEST hiding places for those brightly colored eggs. I don’t know about you but I have seen some very creative hiding places. Survival is all about being prepared and being creative, just like the ones below.

1. Inside An Actual Egg Carton In The Fridge

So while your creative brain is active this Sunday, take advantage of it and see if you can figure out new ways to do things!

Here’s an idea to help gauge the interest your children have in preparedness as well as test their skills a bit:

Instead of simply hiding the Easter eggs, create a map of the area you are hiding them in and mark the general location of each egg. Then give your children the map to see if they can find all of them. This will help them learn how to follow a map, but more importantly, it will engage their creativity and deductive reasoning in trying to figure out exactly where the eggs are.

(If you really want to mess with them, keep one of the eggs held back and watch them go nuts trying to find that last egg)

Whatever you do this weekend, have fun and enjoy the time you have! Happy Easter!
