Adult Easter Egg Hunt ideas  
 So, last year my friends and I decided to have an "adult" Easter egg hunt. Since it was decided rather last minute, we stuffed the eggs with candy and gag gifts and then just threw them around the yard. It was fun opening them, but we are looking for ideas to kind of kick it up a notch. (Oh dear lord, did I really just quote Emeril?) 

We are pretty open to ideas. Twists on the hunt, contests, contents of eggs, etc. Got any fun ideas? We can be a bit raunchy too, so feel free to offer more naughty ideas if you have them. 

Edit: We are all lame adults who don't drink anymore...so that leaves booze off the table.

alcohol stuffed candy, like my friend brought me some Johnny Walker stuffed chocolates.

Also those ready made margarita pouches (I call them Adult Capri Suns) though you'd need really big eggs.

Man, this idea would have been great a few years ago. We all suck as drinkers now, as in nobody drinks anymore. (I know, I KNOW...lame!) However, some of the guys are really into juice so I'm thinking actual Capri Suns are going on the list. And we do have some big eggs.

Not drinking alcohol doesn't make someone lame ¬_o

Oh I know...I'm just poking fun.

Ready made margarita pouch? *runs to Google*
Bubblesbeezelbubbles on March 15th, 2011 01:14 am (UTC)
I must try these on principle. Mmmm... margarita...
mahasinmahasin on March 15th, 2011 01:14 am (UTC)
I've not tried them, BUT the liquor store here sells them pre-frozen.

You can buy little sample packs of flavored lubes. Maybe some X-rated candies?
Miškamschaos on March 14th, 2011 07:45 pm (UTC)
this plus some novelty condoms
Jen: pic#104686149randomjen on March 14th, 2011 07:47 pm (UTC)
Good idea...we did condoms in a few last year (funny when the pregnant friend got one), but there is a naughty store down the street that has the candies/trinkets.
Aiko Yoshidabonanzajelybean on March 14th, 2011 07:51 pm (UTC)
Sample sizes of alcohol or individual shooters?
Jen: pic#104686149randomjen on March 14th, 2011 07:54 pm (UTC)
Yeah, as I mentioned above none of us drink...but I made an edit to the post. It would have been perfect a few years ago when we were lushier :)
Aiko Yoshidabonanzajelybean on March 14th, 2011 11:06 pm (UTC)
Ah, didn't see the edit :) I don't drink anymore, either. Gives me migraines and I feel disproportionately hung over the next day. I miss red wine and local beer, but really, I can live without it.
Jen: pic#104686149randomjen on March 14th, 2011 11:15 pm (UTC)
No worries...you didn't miss it. I figured you had missed my response to an earlier suggestion and just decided to add that since I know not everyone reads comments. I'm with you on the disproportionate hangovers. Ridic.
sweetest_asylumsweetest_asylum on March 14th, 2011 08:01 pm (UTC)
we had an adult pinata once. i wrestled some girl for butt beads. (obviously back when we used to drink, too) there were also dirty dice and small card games, flavored massage oil, candy etc.
how about an adult truth or dare hunt? you have to do what's in the egg.
Jen: pic#104686149randomjen on March 14th, 2011 08:12 pm (UTC)
I like the truth or dare idea...I'll work on ideas for that. We are pretty silly adults with no shame, but since it's now a mostly married w/ kids crowd, we'll have to make sure nobody gets arrested or has DFACS called on them. Hahah.
Annabelleannastronaut on March 14th, 2011 08:08 pm (UTC)
This reminds me of the Faberge egg Easter egg hunt on Ugly Betty, lol. How about putting some lotto tickets or scratcher tickets in the eggs? My family always did this, and we always fought over those eggs.
Jen: pic#104686149randomjen on March 14th, 2011 08:13 pm (UTC)
Perfect. We do it in stockings, why not eggs? One of those fake ones may be in order, but I'm wondering if anyone would fall for it.
Sarcasticia Nitpickersontisiphone on March 14th, 2011 08:18 pm (UTC)
How adult are we talking? Cuz I think the Tenga egg toys would be fun, at least if there's boys involved in this easter egg hunt.

Those are cool...I'd never heard of them before.
why's everything gotta be so intense with mecoendou on March 14th, 2011 08:27 pm (UTC)
At World Market stores (and probably other places, I'm sure) you can get little sample sizes of fancy foods - chocolates, sausages, cheeses, sauces, marinades, etc. If you have larger eggs those might fit.
Jen: pic#104686149randomjen on March 14th, 2011 08:30 pm (UTC)
Yes! In fact, the other day I found one of those mini-Nutella samples that I thought I had put in a stocking at Xmas...that was a nice surprise.
Ugly Like Her Mamaginky on March 14th, 2011 08:28 pm (UTC)
What about a flashlight hunt, at least the dark will add some thrill to it.
Leeshersleeshers on March 14th, 2011 08:48 pm (UTC)
Funny panties. Like maybe really racy man thongs, or even huge panties with funny sayings or pictures on them

Beef Jerkey, or jerkey of other random animals
Jen: pic#104686149randomjen on March 14th, 2011 08:52 pm (UTC)
Hahaha, "jerky of other random animals" killed me. That's something one would give Andrew Zimmern...just a bag of jerky labeled "random animals". He'd eat it. I like the panties idea too.
Leeshersleeshers on March 14th, 2011 08:56 pm (UTC)
Haha, hadn't though about that. I have had gater jerky and it was...interesting
Jen: pic#104686149randomjen on March 14th, 2011 09:09 pm (UTC)
A restaurant near me serves cajun style gator. It is amazingly tender and yes, it tastes a lot like chicken.
mahasinmahasin on March 15th, 2011 01:05 am (UTC)
He'd not only eat them, he'd identify them.
Arrow In A Streamjabber on March 14th, 2011 09:09 pm (UTC)
Jerky off animals is a bit more than a "bit" raunchy... But I want pictures of your next party.
Leeshersleeshers on March 14th, 2011 09:23 pm (UTC)
~snickers~ Oh someone has a dirty mind!
Arrow In A Streamjabber on March 14th, 2011 09:08 pm (UTC)
Get those plastic eggs you can put things inside, then stuff them with condoms, then have the guests hide them in the orifice of their choice... Then the hunt begins!
msbynmsbyn on March 14th, 2011 09:21 pm (UTC)
For my kids I do something that you could edit to your own tastes. A C&P from my lj

A lot LOT of our clues are inside family jokes, so they may not make sense:)
Wow! We had a blast this year:) Each year we do an easter hunt with each child getting 10 clues. Generally, each clue leads to the next clue, which eventually leads to their gift. (We don't do a basket o' candy, we do a little candy treat and an actual gift ~ this year most of the kids got new shoes:)

Sprite had to write a poem using only her toes, that had her and Patrick cracking up for a nice long period of time. Then she had a clue that said something like, "If not for this gushing, our lives would be so much easier". I was referring to the dishwasher that has developed a huge gushing leak, and makes us have to wash everything by hand. She struggled for a long time, looked up "gushing" in case she was missing something, and found "A sudden flow" or something... and she asks, "Is it in the tampons??" LOL!! I guess if we didn't have that ~ life would be a bit easier at times:) I bought her an ipod arm carrier thingy and another ipod gel cover thingy and a Kutless backpack.

Paris had to paint a picture using her mouth, Jaedin and Kainan had to find a particular clue using measurements, but they couldn't carry a ruler with them. Abyni had all sorts of clues that were scavenger hunts, silly clues, etc.

Jaedin got a bunch of gardening stuff, and was so happy, he was almost near tears! He actually even gave me a hug and a huge teary thank you... it was so sweet:)

oh, this is so cute! I might just steal this to do my boyfriend's Easter this year. I feel Easter is so much fun with a hunt.
Jen: pic#104686149randomjen on March 14th, 2011 10:03 pm (UTC)
Very cool and easily modified. Plus, we can use the same concept for the kiddos in the group when they are older. Thank you!
msbynmsbyn on March 14th, 2011 10:04 pm (UTC)
Thanks. We started this tradition when my youngest was 2. We just glued/drew photos on cards for him.

Each card has a particular child's "logo" or is a certain color, so they know at a glance when they've found "Their" clue so there is no misunderstandings.

My sister and brother in law do this with their kids for the really big gift each year at Christmas. The kids love it and can't wait for it...and they're in their teens now. My niece has a blast telling me all about the clue hunt each time.
Jen: pic#104686149randomjen on March 15th, 2011 01:05 am (UTC)
Shoot, I'm about to turn 35 and I would love to have someone do this for me! I'm going to speak to my friends that I spend Christmas with each year.
Storm's ramblingsstormkitty on March 15th, 2011 01:07 am (UTC)
I know! I keep telling her that I want to be a part of it each year, but she doesn't let me. Apparently as the kids have gotten older, the "hunt" takes longer. I think this past year my niece said it took each of them almost an hour before they got to their gift.
Jen: pic#104686149randomjen on March 15th, 2011 01:13 am (UTC)
It reminds of these brothers I heard about years ago that would give each other gifts, but there was always a catch to get to it. Like it would be buried in cement or something. I'm not that hardcore, but I like the hunt!
Storm's ramblingsstormkitty on March 15th, 2011 01:17 am (UTC)
The last couple of years they've had teaser gifts found in the middle of the hunt, which stops the kids for a minute but then they see a clue attached to the gift. And it's usually something that goes with the larger gift. My niece got typewriter ribbon as her teaser because her big gift was a vintage typewriter that my sister found (my niece is in to all things vintage).

We did something like this for my kid (and now, for the grandkid). We had a regular egg hunt, but inside one of the eggs would be a clue, leading to a series of clues, riddles and puzzles that would eventually lead to the Easter basket.
The favorites were the treasure maps - each clue would point to one piece of the map (and the next clue) and the map had to be assembled and then followed.

You could maybe put one of those "raunchy" dice (only one-probably should have said "die") in one egg, and another one in another egg, and then at the end of the hunt, the two people who have them, have to roll them and do what they say....

Like these:

Or you could write some "dirty" madlibs, and fold them up (you know, madlibs on one side, clues on the other) and put that as well as a golf pencil in an egg...

One year, we decorated beer bottles like Easter Eggs and hid them all over the yard. People had a blast looking for them. You could do the same with chi-chi sodas, perhaps? Honestly, the decorating party the night before was almost as much fun as the beer hunt.

Perhaps small-denomination gift certificates to a local ice cream store? Tiny kitchen things, like chip clips or corn holders? Stickers? If your friends like boardgaming, your local game store will have all kinds of interesting dice or mini-games and puzzles.
