8 Kids You Meet At Every Easter Egg Hunt

By  | 

Every parent has that idyllic vision of taking their kids to an Easter egg hunt all clad in their adorable outfits and them stooping gracefully to pluck eggs from tender, green grass as they smile for our perfectly timed Instagram shots. Unfortunately, that’s rarely how it goes. There are messes, spills, fights, and tears. More often than not, egg hunts turn into a comedy of errors with a complete cast of interesting characters. Here are eight kids you meet at every Easter egg hunt:

1. The Elite Competitive Egg Hunter.

This kid has been groomed for perfection. They’re at the starting line fastening their special egg hunting gloves and they’re off before the gun goes off. If there’s a prize involved in this outing, you should just go ahead and give it to them.

2. The Bully.

What this kid lacks in speed and agility, he makes up for by knocking smaller kids over and stealing their eggs. What a jerk.

3. The Sneaky Thief.

Like the bully, this kid prefers to do their hunting in other children’s baskets, but they’re less forceful about it. Your toddler bends down to grab an egg, they bend down to slip three out of his basket. It’s like taking candy from a baby. No, really, it is.

4. The Kid Who Wants All The Eggs. Now.

This is a polite way of saying ‘the spoiled brat.’ This kid wants all the spoils with none of the effort. They’ll probably team up with the bully at some point.
