I remember Easter being a pretty great holiday when I was growing up. Coloring Easter eggs with those Paas tablets was really fun, and the Easter bunny always provided us with a really decent selection of chocolate, Peeps, and jelly beans. Then, of course, there was the main event: the Easter egg hunt. Ours were always indoors — northern Illinois in March or April is too chilly to be going outside that early in the morning. And, it turns out, there are plenty of ways to spice up an indoor Easter egg hunt, whether you're in the same boat weather-wise or just looking for a rain contingency plan.
My family's version of "spicing things up" was not one I'd necessarily recommend. Rather than plastic eggs, we hunted for the very real hardboiled eggs that we'd colored a few days before. That definitely heightened the sense of anticipation for an indoor hunt, because there was at least one occasion when not every egg was found (at least, not until we sniffed it out a couple of weeks later).
A couple of tips: Depending on how patient you are, you might want to limit the hunt to one room or one part of the house. We always stuck to just the living room and the dining room, which were right next to each other. More than that, and you may find the search dragging on well past breakfast time. Also: if you're going to use real eggs, maybe don't wing it like my parents did. Make a list of all your hiding places so that you don't end up discovering any forgotten eggs — by smell — well after Easter is over.
