In fact, we've found that it's actually more fun as a grown-up because the Easter egg prizes for adults are way more fun than quarters and candy. Arrange a fun adult Easter egg hunt for you and your partner, your roommates, or your friends. Use one of these suggestions to organize a casual adults-only Easter egg scavenger hunt, or put together an all-out competition that starts as soon as Easter brunch is over. You could even make and fill adult Easter baskets with fun prizes! This is one holiday celebration you'll be talking about all year.
