When kids are very young, hiding Easter eggs is easy: Behind a chair, under a bush — basically, wherever your tot will spot them without getting frustrated and having a major meltdown (little kids = little patience). For more experienced egg hunters, however, parents have to get a bit more creative when it comes to finding areas that aren't super obvious. So what are some genius places to hide Easter eggs?
Whether you're planning on holding your hunt indoors, outdoors, or a combination of both, there are plenty of nooks and crannies where your kids will never expect to find colored eggs. Don't limit yourself to areas of the house or yard that your kid is most familiar with (but at the same time, remember that sometimes the trickiest things to find are those that are more or less hiding in plain sight). In other words, try to think of all the places your kids are most likely to investigate, like the spaces between the couch cushions or the flower planter on the front porch, and then avoid those places like the plague. Remember, the Easter Bunny is a sneaky creature (not like Santa, who predictably leaves all his goodies behind in stockings and under the tree). If kids are going to fill their baskets, they've got to do a little detective work, but that's okay — all that searching will just make those jelly beans taste even sweeter.
