For children it is the biggest thing at Easter: the search for the Easter eggs. On Easter Sunday, many parents are once again faced with the question: where should we hide the Easter eggs this year?
In most families it belongs to Easter like the Christmas tree to Christmas: Easter egg hiding. Every year, children take great pleasure in searching for the colourful eggs. In earlier times, colourful hard-boiled eggs were hidden, but today they are usually made of chocolate.
Why eggs at Easter? The exact origin of this tradition is somewhat lost in the darkness of history. But eggs have been a symbol of new beginnings and, above all, a new start in life since ancient times. And this fits in with many old spring customs as well as with the Christian idea of resurrection at Easter.
Be that as it may, the search for Easter eggs is the highlight of Easter for children, and many an adult has been spotted passionately searching for Easter eggs. (For example, if your partner has hidden some as a romantic Easter surprise).
For all self-proclaimed Easter bunnies and hares, the question still arises as to the best place to hide Easter eggs. The answer to this depends on 3 aspects: the age of the searching children (or adults), the weather (indoors or outdoors) and most importantly: the terrain available.
For pre-school children, overly complicated hiding places are unsuitable and can lead to frustration for the child.
