Easter egg hunts are a childhood rite of passage for most kids, but sometimes the littlest ones need a bit of help with the activity. For the just-walking set, the easy Easter egg hunt ideas for toddlers are sure to be a hit. They can enjoy the thrill of the hunt without getting super frustrated (hopefully).
When you hide Easter eggs for your toddler to find, your family is participating in an old tradition. Although its exact origins are unknown, Easter egg hunts have likely been around for hundreds of years in some cultures. In 1800s Scotland, for instance, it was tradition for children to venture out early on Easter morning to collect the eggs of wild birds for breakfast, according to CBS News. Although you probably won't put your toddler in charge of breakfast duty on Easter morning, it's still fun to keep such an old tradition alive.
With that in mind, you can put your own spin on the egg hunt according to your kid's individual interests and abilities. Maybe all the eggs have a Paw Patrol theme, or they're all filled with your kid's favorite snack. Whatever the case, feel free to put your own, modern spin on this springtime tradition.
