It feels like Spring this week which makes this Easter egg hunt idea very apropos. I’ve partnered with Balloon Time to create this post and it’s truly one of my favorite original ideas to date.
Everyone loves an Easter egg hunt. We have them in our neighborhoods, our back yards, at churches and preschools, even city parks. It’s a fun tradition that children love….except for the toddlers. Lets face facts. We want to include the little ones but they really don’t know what to do, or why they’re doing it. Mom and dad try to coach them and nudge them in the right direction but it’s mostly futile. Well, now I’ve got the BEST solution for you instead!
The secret is helium-filled balloons!
BEST Easter Egg Hunt Idea!

The trick to this Easter egg hunt idea is to tie balloons to the eggs, and scatter them throughout the yard. As you can see from our adorable little model, the floating balloons draw toddlers in like a moth to a flame. It doesn’t take much coaxing from the parents either, because children naturally love balloons.
What You’ll Need:
- Balloon Time helium tank
- 9 inch balloons in a variety of Spring colors
- thin ribbon
- plastic Easter eggs + treats for filling
- clear tape
Fill balloons with helium and tie them off to secure.
Tie long strands of ribbon around treat-filled Easter eggs, securing with a piece of tape.
Place eggs all around the yard.
NOTE: Make sure ribbon isn’t cut too long. Optimal height for the floating balloons should be around toddler height.
This Easter egg hunt idea is so simple but is such a great way to let the smallest hunters be involved. If you have older children who are doing the Easter egg hunt, make sure they know to leave the balloon-tied eggs for the toddlers, or do a separate round of hunting for each age group.
This would also work for large groups; just get a few volunteers to help with blowing up the balloons. The nice thing is that less eggs/balloons are needed for children this small. Sweet Rose was perfectly happy with six treat-filled eggs.
