One of our favourite parts of Easter is the Easter Egg Hunt. Seeing the kids eyes light up when they find their eggs left by the Easter Bunny is always a treat. Whether this your first time organising one or if you need some new inspiration, we are here to help with our tips and ideas to plan and carry out the magic of this Easter tradition.
The preparation and decorations are one of the most important parts in making the hunt come alive. Let your creativity run wild and help the Easter Bunny out with going all out.
Easter Bunny Ears
This one is for all those sewing fans. All you need is a headband, clothes hanger, material and your trusty Brother sewing machine.

DIY Hunt Signs
Sometimes the Easter Bunny can get a little lost, so it is always helpful to put up signs to guild everyone to the hunt. You can also show off your ScanNCut skills with these cute signs.
All of the ScanNCut Machines from the CM350, CM700 to the CM900 have features that make crafting simple projects like this even easier and quicker. Like choosing your machine, you can choose to make rabbits, eggs or even both as the shapes for your signs. Glue or tape them to a stake or a paddle-pop stick and let them lead the way to the hunt.

You never know what the traffic will be like on Easter Day. So, to ensure the Easter Bunny gets to each home on time, we recommend setting up a Bunny Crossing to help them on their way.
Get inspired by this simple tutorial by Confessions of a Serial Do-It-Your-Selfer. You don’t need many materials to make this sign; only wood, paint and some stencils- which you could make using your ScanNCut Machine. It is also the perfect decoration to get the Dads involved, plus it is a lot of fun.

Now the fun part – The hiding of the eggs! If you have different age groups or a more competitive group, you can split the area up to mix up the difficultly. With the younger children or those that aren’t as talented with the finding, hide the eggs in easier places such as open spaces. For the older and more advanced hunters, hide them in difficult places like under leaves, in corners or even just out of reach, etc…
Note: this is also a great photo opportunity to add to those photo albums or scrapbooks – you can find some at Brother Creative Center.
If you have children that will squabble over the chocolate eggs or you just want to make sure no one takes your carefully collected Easter eggs, use your P-Touch labeller to label the containers to let everyone know whose eggs are whose.
Happy egg hunting!
