Liven Up Your Egg Hunts...Farm Critters

One of the highlights of Easter for our family is the annual Easter egg hunt the Legion Auxiliary holds in the park.  I grew up in "the trenches" of Legion and Auxiliary functions always helping my parents and the ladies organizing events.  The egg hunt was the best!

Back in my day, we actually used real eggs.  The ladies boiled and boiled eggs, while the girls rushed to the Legion Hall after school and dyed the multitude of eggs.  We always had our choice of colors.  There was never a shortage of old butter dishes filled with vinegar, dye, and hot water spread on the tables. 

After all the eggs were colored and labeled, we were sent home. Then on Saturday morning, bright and early, we would head to the city park and hide all those eggs!  The hiding part wasn't bad, but then we had to sit and guard those little ovals until the hunt started.

If you are tired of the same kind of egg hunt, try these little guys out.  We made these farm critters out of simple items and I plan on filling them with special treats for the kids.  They look really cute nestled in the grass!

Here is what you need:

  • pictures of farm animals-  I printed them off my computer.  I used some real photos and a few black and white coloring pages so the children could help personalize them.
  • small boxes-  You could use yogurt cups or soap boxes.
  • glue
  • scissors
  • crayons, markers, etc.
Here is what you do:
  • Choose your favorite animals, print, color, and cut the animals out.  You will want to cut around the head, but leave a base wide enough to cover the edge of the box.  We decorated it like grass and added rocks, flowers, worms, and leaves.  My son insisted on using a frog-  Get creative! 

  • Glue your animal to a box. 

  • When they are dry, fill with candy or small treats!  The nice thing about this size of a box is the variety of items that will fit inside. 



  • Hide your little critters among the grass and surprise the children with realistic looking animals!  It was raining here, so I displayed them on our piano.  These are a big hit around our house.


Finally, have fun!
