A signature Cap Cana event is the Easter Egg Hunt. Since we all are in a stay home motto, we decided to share with you how to make an egg hunt from home in this article.
Mrs. Francheska Fernandez, from the Heritage School made a great do it yourself tutorial on how to make egg hunt bunny bags so that kids can put their findings in it.
The tutorial will be aired on Saturday, April 11, at 11 AM. For this you will need:
-Paper plates or normal paper
Now, on how to do the Easter Egg Hunt at home we recomend:

With these indoor Easter egg hunt ideas, you might not want to bother venturing outside at all. Lots of them try to make the hunt just a teeny bit harder, either with clues to follow, puzzles to solve, or challenges to overcome to find the eggs. Others involve indoor activities that you can also use as Easter basket goodies even if you do have an outdoor hunt. There are even some ideas for different prizes, so you’re not constrained by the size of a plastic egg. Happy hunting!
Make it interactive
They might not be able to run around in the grass, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get them to expend some of their boundless energy during their egg search. Print out these directions, slip them inside the eggs, and, every time a hunter finds one, they have to do the action inside. After all the mooing and hopping, they’ll be ready for a nap.
Instead of leaving a ton of eggs all over every nook and cranny of your apartment, you can carefully hide a few of them, and then offer a trail of clues that’ll help kids find them. It combines the fun of a an egg hunt with the thrill of a scavenger hunt.
Include word search
Hunting for the right letters can be just as thrilling as hunting for eggs, right? If you really want to go the extra mile, you can make your own word search that somehow contains clues to the locations of the hidden eggs. Or, you can download this one and make it one of the found prizes.
Turn it into a letter hunt
If you want to take the word search idea a step further, you can combine the two and make the eggs into the words themselves — a message that can only be “unscrambled” if you find them all and place them in the right order.
Add an extra puzzle
To add a second layer of challenge, conceal a puzzle piece inside each plastic egg — kids have to find them all to solve the puzzle. Use a blank, draw-on jigsaw puzzle to write the final clue to where the Easter baskets are hiding.
Do it blindfolded
Make the festivities even harder by adding a blindfold; you can either direct the kids to the eggs “hotter/colder” style, or, if they’re younger, fill them with coins or other noise-making prizes and shake them until your toddlers find you.
Switch up prizes
It’s hard to fit good prizes in the small, plastic eggs — and keeping prizes with real eggs is even harder. If you don’t want to use candy or a small piece of junk, consider hiding “points” or raffle tickets with each egg — the harder the hiding spot, the more points or tickets — that can be combined for a larger Easter gift. Or get even more creative, and hide “privilege cards” that can be used to get out of chores or get extra treats like more screen-time.
Once they’ve found all the eggs, let them grab a few and hide them on you. They can use the “hotter/colder” method to direct you to their hiding spots. Just promise not to peek!
