Get ready for a fun and festive Easter with this fun and colorful sign. Before you organize an egg hunt and hide all the eggs, download and print our free sign so you can mark the way. The sign reads, "Hop This Way," which will get the kids excited and ready to find those dyed or decorated Easter eggs. The best part is, you can have the whole thing assembled in under 10 minutes. After you’ve printed our template, just tape the sign onto a foam core board and glue a dowel rod onto the back of the board, then place in the yard or wherever the egg hunt will start. It also doubles as a way to welcome guests to Easter brunch on Sunday morning.
How to Make an Easter Egg Hunt Sign
- Free printable "Hop This Way" sign
- 11" x 17" piece of foam core board
- Double-sided tape
- Hot-glue gun
- Dowel rod
Use our free printable sign and easy instructions to make your own Easter egg hunt sign. Once you've printed the sign, you should be able to complete the project in under ten minutes.
Step 1: Print sign
Print the sign at your local office store on 11" x 17" paper. Use double-sided tape to adhere the sign to a large piece of foam core board (such as White Foam Core, $3, Michaels). Tape all around the edges so your sign won't come off (especially if you plan to display it outside). Of couese, you can have the art scaled down to fit a smaller size paper; just be sure to cut your foam core board down to fit the sign as well.
Step 2: Assemble
Once the printed sign has been secured to the foam core, attach a wood dowel rod (such as ArtMinds Wooden Dowel, from $0.49, Michaels) to the back of the foam so you can easily display it. Adhere the dowel rod to the back of board using hot glue and then allow the glue to dry completely. When pushing your sign into the ground, press firmly on the dowel rod, not the poster. Display the sign at the entrance to your Easter egg hunt.
Step 3: Plan your Easter egg hunt
Now that you have the sign finished, it's time to plan the ultimate Easter egg hunt. Use some of our top tips for hosting an egg-stravaganza even the Easter bunny would be proud of.
