Ah those Easter treasure hunts...a great way to get the family together like some social glue during Easter, and they hone some important life skills for all of us.

We love hunting for those chocolate Easter eggs. For children and adults alike, there seems to be more life satisfaction in hunting than simply picking such treats up from the supermarket market shelves, and then simply paying for him.

Hunting is part of the fun. It is great to source a few easy finds, just to increase one's self confidence in hunting for more. On this, if you're planning any Easter hunts for your child/children this Easter; give them a few easy ones, as well as a few more complex hunts for the larger eggs.

"The greater the risk, the greater the reward."

As per the above. The harder hunts are worth hunting for. Why? More chocolate. More treats. More critical thinking skills are required, as well as the ability to concentrate and not lose focus. These are valuable life skills that you can teach your little ones. These skills will serve them well in life. The earlier they learn, the better. Also your little ones will learn the art of persistence, a much needed skill in today's world.

"Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day, teach him how to fish, you feed him for a lifetime."

It is ok to give a couple of fish away at first, and that way it keeps your child/children interested and engaged in the Easter hunt exercise. In saying this, you're not giving the Easter eggs away on a whim. By setting up an Easter egg hunt for their Easter eggs; the little ones are expected to gain a greater appreciation that rewards come with effort, and that you're encouraging them to hunt for their own fish, rather than just giving them some. The latter is true for the more difficult hunts. As the chocolate eggs are more valuable, they will (hopefully) ensure that they leave enough room for their dinner/for the foods they're meant to eat more of. Fishing is more enjoyable than just being handed some fish on a silver platter.

People appreciate things that require effort, than if something was given to them on a silver platter with hardly any effort in retrospect.

Easter egg hunts are heaps of fun too, and they only need to be done once a year. Enjoy.
