(BPT) - From the White House lawn to the family living room, children of all ages will soon be searching behind bushes and couches to find that last treasured egg. If you don’t have an Easter egg hunt to attend in your community this year, consider planning your own and inviting all the neighbors to participate. Here are some tips for planning the perfect Easter egg hunt:

Find out what kids want

Kids each have their favorite items they’re hoping they’ll find in their baskets. To deliver the best gifts from the Easter Bunny, you have to think like the kids. See what kids think about the Easter Bunny and the goodies he’s going to bring this year in this adorable video by Personal Creations.

Pick the right eggs

Load up on eggs of all shapes and sizes. Plastic eggs are the best for hiding, because if an egg isn’t found, it won’t spoil and cause a mess later. Plastic eggs are very colorful, making them easier to spot by both little children and older kids alike. If you’re inviting a lot of younger children to the egg hunt, consider placing several eggs in a soft Easter basket like the Large Plush Bunny Basket and placing it under a tree to make it faster and easier for kids to find.

Invite the Easter Bunny

Rent an Easter Bunny costume and ask someone to wear it to welcome guests of all sizes to your Easter egg hunt. Ask someone else to be a digital photographer who can email your guests photos taken of their kids posing with the Easter bunny – parents will appreciate the opportunity to have their kids take a picture with the Easter Bunny without having to make a special visit to the local mall. Hang a personalized Egg Hunt Banner in the yard and decorate the area with streamers and balloons to give your backyard a festive feel.

Prepare for rain

April showers aren’t outside of the scope of possibilities, so prepare for a rainy day situation. You don’t want a handful of disappointed children at the party. Utilize furniture and the garage to hide eggs throughout the house. Prepare a map of the house and how many eggs are in each room so kids who aren’t familiar with the layout of the home can still find their fair share of hidden eggs.

Consider treats that aren’t candy

Don’t limit your Easter party treats to just sweets. Stuffed bunnies make the perfect companion for young kids, and are a great gift to hide along with the eggs. Parents will appreciate that there are options to take home other than candy, and kids will have something to keep for years to come. To give it that extra special touch, personalize a stuffed animal with each kid’s name at www.PersonalCreations.com.

With these tips, you’ll have a successful Easter egg hunt that your friends and neighbors – and their children – will be talking about for weeks to come.
