Easter egg hunts are a great opportunity for families to enjoy the outdoors while scrambling in an open field for plastic eggs, some of which may be filled with treats or which may lead to prizes. Some hunts are also combined with breakfasts featuring that seasonal celebrity, the Easter Bunny.

Just make sure you show up on time, because once the hunt begins, those eggs don’t stay on the ground long.
