Unless your folks go nuts when it comes to hiding Easter
eggs, chances are finding those colorful orbs in the grass doesn’t offer up
much of a challenge. Turn the traditional activity up a notch with a digi-cam
scavenger hunt. We’re gonna break it down step-by-step for you ‘n’ your
1. Suggest the change in plans to your parents. If your fam or neighborhood is hosting a hunt for
younger kids, then their doings don’t have to change and there will be more eggs for the tots.
2. Call up your crew. Depending
on what you normally do for Easter, your bunch might include neighborhood buds,
your besties, older cousins and sibs or a combination.
3. Elect a master of ceremonies. Someone needs to sit out so they can plan the
scavenger list, decide on the hunting area (like your backyard vs. your neighborhood)

4. Break into teams. The
number of people on a team depends upon the number of cameras available for
your use. Digital cameras and cell phone cams are totally fine

5. On your marks…Before
you get huntin’, make sure everyone knows the rules and has each other’s phone
numbers in case you get lost.
6. Get set…go! You
can have everyone go at once, or allow the younger members of your group a
10-second head start. The first one back to the master of ceremonies with
photos of all the items on the list wins! Send a text out to all of the other
scavengers to tell ‘em that the game is over.
