Easter egg hunts are perfect for bringing people together. Just about any kid, regardless of age, can participate in the simple game of collecting eggs. And just about any adult, regardless of disposition, can enjoy the unbridled cuteness of children squealing with delight as they hunt for those colorful little “treasures.”
Planning an Easter egg hunt is also fun – mainly because you get to be the one to hide the eggs. But before you get to that point, you’ll need to send out the invitations. Whether you’re sending your Easter invites in the mail or electronically, this short guide will help you come up with the right wording.
Easter Egg Invite Tips
Compared to other types of invitations, egg hunt invites are relatively straightforward. Unless the people on your list come from a different culture, the words “Easter Egg Hunt” should tell them pretty much exactly what to expect. There are just a few recommendations particular to this type of invite:
1. Sprinkle in some egg-quisite puns. Easter Bunny? Try Easter Punny. Puns are always popular on invitations, and when it comes to crafting groan-inducing puns, you can’t ask for a better subject than an Easter egg hunt. Some of the best puns use the word egg: egg-cellent, egg-citing, egg-trvaganza… egg-cetera…
2. Tell people if it’s BYOE (Bring Your Own Eggs). If you’re hosting a large Easter egg hunt, it’s acceptable to ask parents to contribute to the egg supply. The invitation should say how many eggs they should bring, and what type (real colored eggs or plastic shells with trinkets inside). For that matter, the invite should tell guests about anything else they should bring (food for a potluck, drinks, etc).
3. Send invites early. Whether you’re having your egg hunt on Easter Sunday or on some other date around that time, don’t procrastinate too much on sending out the invitations. If you send your invites out at the last minute, many of your invitees will likely have made different plans for the holiday.
Aside from those specific pointers, make sure you include all the basic information on your invitation. If you have any questions, hop on over to our party invite primer.
Here are some egg-samples to help you out. Use them as-is, or as inspiration to come up with your own unique wording.
Note that some of these wording samples are abbreviated to save space. For an actual invitation, make sure you include all the important details.
