Top 3 tips to throw an engaging Easter egg hunt for the little ones. If you have a large family and regularly get together for the Easter holiday, you probably know just how difficult it can be to keep your extended family's children happy while you're trying to socialize. With an especially big group of little ones, an Easter egg hunt is one of the many party themes that can keep them busy and it's surprisingly easy to set up. If you don't know the first place to start, use the following tips to help your Easter party come together without a hitch.

1. Decorate the yard. There are myriad party decorations that you can use to make your backyard more engaging for small children, and you don't have to break the bank to do so. Hanging a few mylar balloons from trees, adding colorful streamers and even renting an Easter-themed standing decoration for the day can make the experience feel more authentic for the little ones. When you're hiding Easter eggs, be sure to keep the area limited to the lawn and away from heavily-wooded areas - you don't want a sudden mishap to ruin anyone's good time.

2. Custom baskets. Before the kids set off on their hunt for Easter eggs, you can give them an engaging craft project to complete. Pick up a few inexpensive baskets at a crafting store and put out a selection of curling ribbon, paints and other art supplies to let them personalize their baskets. This will ensure that no one's stash of chocolates will be confused with one another at the end of the celebration and it will give the parents a great new decorative accent to use during the spring. Best of all, you won't have to worry about providing any additional party favors!

3. Prizes. Since the kids will have plenty of treats to enjoy long after your Easter party, present a gift to the parents of the child who collects the most eggs. A food or wine basket on the line is a great way to get the parents involved and get them to cheer their children on!

Easter is fast approaching, so if you're having your entire extended family over to your home, creating an Easter egg hunt will be a wonderful way to keep the children busy while you catch up with your relatives.
