The Groupon Guide to Egg Hunting The Easter egg hunt is a fixture in family calendars nationwide – a time to remember the key values that keep us together in times of need: love, affection, and a willingness to exclude the little one if it means everyone else gets more chocolate. Here’s how to do it well:
Know your enemy The Easter Bunny is a wily beast, and it takes a lot to outsmart her. Put yourself in her shoes and try really hard to imagine where you’d hide eggs if you were a rabbit. After that, head straight to a burrow.
Don’t be picky Eggers can’t be choosers, so round up everything from Scotch eggs and eggnog, to the poor people whose parents thought Egbert was a good name.
Know where to look Never mind scrabbling around under ornaments and plant pots at home, for a really successful hunt be a little more canny. Raid the nearest Easter arts and crafts fair, or check the faces of recently disgraced politicians.
Ask permissionbefore hunting on someone else’s land. Poaching an egg is an offence in some counties. Trust no one Especially children. If someone tells you they’ve already checked the bathroom and there’s nothing in there, it almost certainly means they’re guarding a secret hoard of eggs.
