Here’s how a typical holiday goes: the adults do all the planning, buy all the goodies, set up all the surprises, and the kids get to have all the fun. (Holler if that sounds familiar.) But there’s nothing that says grownups can’t get in on the action, too! Check out our list of adult Easter egg hunt ideas for inspiration and make it happen this year.
Most of these ideas are fun for all ages so the whole family can get involved. (Just a few — involving booze, lottery tickets, or naughty innuendo — are for the grown folks only.) Share them with a partner, family, or friends — even if you’re celebrating virtually — and get to making forever memories at any age.
Switch out the traditional Easter egg hunt with a grownup-friendly alternative: Roll those plastic eggs to get as close to a target as possible. Whoever’s eggs land the closest wins a prize. (Mimosas during play encouraged, but not required.)
Customize this game for the number, ages, and type of participants, but it’s especially fun for couples: Fill plastic eggs with coupons the finder can redeem: one extra-tight hug, one extra-long kiss… and any other prizes, from nice to naughty!
April Fool’s Eggs
