Whether you have a 3-month-old or a 12-month-old, these are some fun Easter hunt ideas that even your baby will love.

First, fill plastic Easter eggs with some of your baby’s favorite treats might it be cereal puffs or even yogurt melts. After you fill your Easter eggs you can then fill a kiddie pool with Easter basket grass along with tons of plastic eggs they can easily grab for.

Another idea is to tie balloons to each of the eggs and put them in the grass. This will help your little one easily find the eggs and they will definitely enjoy seeing all the colors.
