From toddlers to teens, most kids love Easter Egg hunts. But the traditional Easter game can be a bit challenging for small ones and those with disabilities—especially kids with mobility disabilities or children who struggle with social interactions. Sadly, as much as you try to nudge them in the right direction, your efforts are often in vain.
Thankfully, there’s a brilliant hack that helps kids of all ages find the colorful eggs without the stress. The best part? It’s also great for parents and hosts that can’t remember where they hid the eggs (yup, been there, done that!)
We’re thankful Facebook page Noah’s Miracle had moms in mind when he shared an image of helium-filled, colored balloons adhered to plastic eggs to give attention to the location of each egg. The post was first shared about three years ago and has been a resource for mamas ever since.
“Great idea for children with mobility challenges so that they can participate in Easter egg hunts easier and remain in wheelchairs & gait trainers & walkers,” says the caption in the post that’s garnered thousands of Facebook comments and shares since its posting two years ago.
Now we can’t control if April showers will put a damper on your hunt, but this hack is a surefire way to get the whole crowd involved.
