Handy tip! - With an indoor hunt, hide the eggs in a different room than your main entertaining area so that your eggs aren't discovered before the hunt begins.

Let the Hunt Begin
Once everyone has had a chance to nibble on some food, and the children are bouncing off the walls like baby bunnies, it's time to set them loose on the hunt. If there's a wide disparity in the children's ages, let the youngest ones have the first crack at finding the eggs. If you know that some of your little guests will be very young, 'hide' some eggs out in the open so that they can have the thrill of finding them before they lose interest in the activity. Once the little bunnies have had a couple of minutes to look around, you can set the bigger ones loose.
