Not hating the good old-fashioned candy-filled Easter egg hunt. Candies are fun and for kids. But for kids-at-heart, how about gummy bears to give it an adult twist?

Give participants hints or clues to help them find the Easter eggs while hiding gummy bears inside of them. Use pastel-colored Easter gummy bears in that you can find at Sugarfine in various flavors, such as Rainbow bears, sparkling rose bears, Mrs. Bubbly bears, etc.

There's no winner or loser here.

If you want to crown a winner, you can choose the one who ends up finding the highest number Easter eggs.

4. Do Or Die Easter Egg Hunt

Fill Easter eggs with various challenges written on scraps of paper. If a contestant finds an Easter egg, he or she must perform the challenge inside the egg or face punishment.

The winner is the contestant who completes the most tasks.

Want to plan some belly-laughs for the Easter egg hunt? Then there’s Egg Roulette, which will have everyone cracking up and rolling on the floor.

You only need a dozen hard-boiled eggs, hide them for the participants, and dye six of them a bright color while leaving the other six uncolored. Anyone who hunts an egg must crack it open with their forehead. The players who find the dyed eggs will be splashed with dyed water, whereas the players who find the plain eggs will be clean.

The hunt winner is the one who survives with a clean face.

6. Wine Bottles Egg Hunt

Instead of stuffing plastic Easter eggs with candy or toys, fill them with miniature wine or liquor bottles. First, you stuff them with miniature wine bottles and hide them around the house or in the backyard. Give the hunt a fun and unique twist by including a puzzle game or riddle that participants must solve before they can find the hidden egg and unlock it to enjoy a glass of wine.

The person who gathers the most bottles is the winner.

7. Mystery Numbers Easter Egg Hunt

This is a fun and challenging activity in which some people become wealthy. The idea is to hide Easter eggs in a specific spot with numbers written on them. Each egg has a different number on it, but there’s a catch: participants must solve a clue or riddle to find all the eggs and figure out the sequence of the numbers.

For example, the eggs could bear the numbers 1,9, 25, 49, 81 and 121, etc. Participants must deduce that the correct sequence is the square of 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11.

The participant who figures out the sequence first receives the sequence’s total in cash, while the others must pay up for the prize.

8. Boozy Jelly Shots Easter Egg Hunt

Instead of typical chocolate eggs, participants will look for plastic eggs filled with alcohol-infused jelly shots.

Soak regular jelly shots or beans in alcohol for a few hours or overnight to make boozy jelly beans. It will taste stronger the longer you soak them. To create the best flavors, mix and match any alcohol you want, such as vodka, rum, or tequila. Hide them throughout your home or yard, and keep track of where you put them all. Participants will then go on a hunt for the eggs and enjoy the fun treat of the boozy jelly beans hidden inside. To add a twist, before eating the jelly beans inside the egg, participants must take a shot of the matched alcohol.

Well, I don't think anyone care for a winner in the end!

9. “Never Have I ever” Easter egg hunt

This age-old Easter egg hunt game can be given a new spin by including a “Never Have I Ever” factor. First, make some Easter eggs and fill them with a variety of difficulties. For example, one egg could say, “Never have I ever gotten drunk at work” or “Never have I ever had a one-night stand,” or a more lighthearted challenge, “Never have I ever worn mismatched socks.”

Once every egg has been located, assemble everyone and take turns cracking the eggs. If someone has previously done the thing mentioned in the challenge, they must drink a shot or perform some other penalty. The egg is theirs to keep as a point if they haven’t done it.

When the game is over, the player with the most points, i.e. eggs, wins!

10. Easter Egg Race

An Easter egg race is a festive and fun game for both kids and adults.

Set up a starting and finishing line with cones and chalk to mark the lines. Give an egg and a spoon to each participant. The race’s goal is to be the first to cross the finish line without dropping the egg. Participants should start the race by placing the egg on the spoon and holding it in their hands or mouths. With the egg perched atop the spoon, the competitors should begin running or walking toward the finish line. The participant must halt and pick up any dropped egg before moving on.

The first one to finish without slipping the egg, the least times, wins.

Bottom Line

No matter which type of egg hunt you go on—glow-in-the-dark, drunken, or photo—the most important thing is to enjoy yourself and share the joy with your friends and loved ones.
