One of the best ways to celebrate Easter is to plan an Easter Egg hunt in your back garden or in home. It's always a good idea to set a few ground rules before the start of your Easter hunt to make sure that everything is fair, for example; how many eggs they can eat, how many in total they can find - this makes it more even if you have children of mixed ages.

Here are a few ideas on how you can add a twist to this year's Easter Egg hunt:

If you have a group of children with different ages, how about setting a coloured egg, such as orange for young children and green for older children.

Print off an Easter hunt check-list for each child for example; 2 orange, 3 purple and 5 gold.

Set out clues for your Easter Egg hunt, here are some rhyming ones from the Netmum's website, here are some examples of an Easter Egg hunt you can do in the comfort of your own home:

We put these on to jump in mud
It's hidden in a .........................

Clue hidden in someone's bed:
This clue's snug and cosy
Go and take a peep
It's underneath a pillow
Where Daisy likes to sleep
