2. Create a hub where hunters can regroup to discuss clues and refuel with homemade lemonade or ginger beer and some of these adorable chick cupcakes.

3. Ask guests to come in fancy dress, because who doesn’t love an excuse to reuse that old Harry Potter costume. Those without a costume can make these simple bunny ears.

4. Disguise your clues using invisible ink or hide them in homemade glitter slime.

5. Challenge hunters with a cycling Easter egg hunt to get them racing through the forest or a mountain hike hunt with eggs hidden in stone walls and crags. Feeling super organised? Plan the route on google maps in your shape of choice.

6. Hide the final clue to the main chocolate haul inside a balloon or stick it on the side of one. Then blow up a load more balloons so the clue is even trickier to find among them.
