On Sunday the 9th of April 2017 we had our first Easter Hunt at Madrid Rio with the single parents group. The weather was just fine, not too hot not too cold. I was a bit worried if the sun would melt all the chocolate eggs and rabbits before the kids found them… but let’s explain first what an Easter Hunt is.
For those who don’t know what an Easter Hunt is: it’s a tradition in many countries in Europe (Germany, Switzerland, France, England, etc.) where the kids look out for Easter eggs (chocolate or hard-boiled) and chocolate bunnies which have been hidden by the “Easter Bunny”. The more Easter eggs the kids collect the better. Normally it’s played outdoors, but it can also be done inside.
The Easter eggs (hard-boiled) are normally painted by hand or dyed and are used in the “egg fight”. The rule of the egg fight is simple. One holds a hard-boiled egg and taps the egg of another participant with one’s own egg intending to break the other’s, without breaking one’s own. As with any other game cheating is normal and there are several techniques how to break the other egg without breaking your own or how to save your egg from breaking.
Here some impressions from our Easter Hunt:
