They started because a king lost his egg on Easter day and he had to hunt for it. ____________________________ Yeah, that's right... the KING lost hi…s egg and HE had to hunt for it.... hum. Egg hunting was introduced by the pagan's who turned Christian.
well someone hides the eggs... and then you get a basket and collect them, there usually plastic filled with candy.
we hunt Easter eggs for fun and so we can remember Jesus
if its for young children like 3-6 yr olds then put them in obvious places (if the kids are 5-6 then make it a little harder7-10yr olds = Harder13+ = HARDER TO FIND PLACES - S…OMEWHERE NOT OBVIOUS.
get a bunch of eggs and paint them, or get plastic ones that open and put like candy or money in 'em, and hide them around the yard or whatever, then have whoever is playing g…o find them
There is no meaningful message or metaphor for doing an Easter egg hunt on Easter. It is simply a Western idea that rakes in the money for supermarkets, and provides some fun …for the children.
For Catholics, Jesus died in Easter so the egg symbol represents new life, just as Jesus rose 3 days later!
Look for all the bunny tracks.... that's a good clue...
This will depend on where you are hiding the eggs. Fun ideas for clues would be having them rhyme or creating a scavenger hunt where one clue leads to the next. This chick i…s chilly... If you are hiding something in the fridge. This egg is growing... If you are hiding it with a plant Spot wants to play. I hope I don't break.. If you are hiding it near a dog toy. It's a good thing I will be able to swim one day... If you are hiding it in a bathtub Round and round I go. Will I break? Nobody knows!... If you are hiding it in a washer/dryer. Get creative with it. It's all about where the best hiding spots are available for use and coming up with something fun to help your players get to the eggs.
In many cultures, the egg symbolizes new life, fertility, and rebirth. This certainly fits in the spirit and meaning of Easter.
It is not exactly certain how Easter egg hunting originated. In Northern Europe the egg was symbol of fertility and the rabbit was an animal that represented rebirth. The Godd…ess of Ostara, according to folklore, turned a bird into a rabbit (The reason is not known. It could have been done to amuse some children.) and gave it the ability to lay eggs so that it could still feel like it was a bird. That is why there is the Easter Bunny. But soon the rabbit angered the goddess and she said the rabbit had to give away the eggs. Maybe that is why people hide eggs and hold egg hunts. They want to keep the folklore alive. Or, the Christians created the game of an egg hunt during the "Burning Times" because they wanted 'shun' the "Old Religion" by hiding eggs from kids instead of giving eggs to the adults.
What are really really hard Easter egg hunt clues i need really challenging clues for adults and young adults ones you have to think about?
hide them in a place that blends in with the place you put them in.
Easter egg hunts take place on Easter which land on a Sunday between March 22 and April 25. In 2013, it will be on March 31st.
