Best Easter Egg Hunts in Greater Cincinnati

It is that time of year! With spring comes outdoor activities, like the annual Easter egg hunt.

Where does this charming scavenger game come from? Historians point to Germany and the 16th century. It is said that when German settlers came to the United States they brought with them the “Easter Hare”, which the Americans later adopted. The story also tells of the Protestant reformer Martin Luther, who organized an egg hunt for his congregation; the men hid the eggs for the women and children to find. Nonetheless, today’s Easter egg hunt is a family favorite springtime event. They are a light-hearted occasion where children can run, play and mystically have fun while using their critical thinking skills. Plus, it’s pretty easy to find plenty of opportunities to participate in an Easter Egg Hunt near you this April!
