Easter is right around the corner which means Peeps, Cadbury Eggs, jelly-bean sweets… and Easter Egg hunting! While many families resort to the clever hunts in the comfort of their own backyards, more ambitious egg-hunters take to the large hunts that are offered across our city. Check out the following list of the most egg-celent Easter egg hunts in our spring-struck city, but remember to try and not eat all your sugary-goodness at once!
Spring Hunts at Seattle Children’s Museum
Seattle. For children ages 1 to 10, this unique egg hunt gives kids the exciting pursuit of finding thousands of eggs hidden among the exhibits in the Seattle Children’s Museum. Egg hunters are then invited to turn in their collected eggs for special non-candy prize bags. This egg hunt is by reservation only, and is further divided by age groups. The event sells out quickly, so reserve your spot soon and give your children a fun challenge on this exciting day. Price includes admission to the museum for the day!
Beat the Bunny 5k Run & Walk
Redmond. What better way to bring the family together than a “fun-k”! Grab your tennis shoes and head to Marymoor Park for an Easter-themed 5k! All participants who beat the bunny to the finish line win a prize, and all participants receive a t-shirt, finish line food and a donation made to Redmond Kiwanis in their name. All children under the age of 12 are invited to participate in an early Kids Dash for the chance to find an egg with a special prize! Register your family for this fun race today!

Woodland Park Zoo’s Bunny Bounce & Easter Baskets for the Animals
North Seattle. What better way to celebrate Easter than sharing it with the animals? Head to the zoo and watch the animals enjoying their own Easter baskets filled with flowers, berries and their favorite treats. Among the normal exhibits, this annual Easter event features crafts, bunny encounters and many activity booths for children of all ages. Kids ages 1-8 have the opportunity to enjoy a first-come-first-serve egg hunt… so get there early!
Lil’ Ones Egg Hunt at Mercerdale Park
Mercer Island.While most egg hunts are scheduled for the early morning hours, this sweet little egg hunt was made for the littlest ones in our family who need a few extra hours of sleep!
