Candy, the Easter bunny, and the "best" Easter egg hunt; everything a kid loves about Easter.

The last two years, Easter egg hunts were a little different because of the pandemic. Some of these places had a drive-up Easter egg hunt, it just had a different feel. Lots of towns in New Jersey did have this option and it was incredibly awesome to keep some kind of normal for our kids, but there's nothing like a "real" Easter egg hunt.

I still love Easter egg hunts and make sure every year I have one for my 16-year-old. Sorry, that will never change, I don't care how old she gets. It's tough finding an Easter egg hunt for 16-year-olds. So, I make my own up and she has a blast.

We are so lucky to live in Ocean County, especially because of the "giant" East egg hunts on our beaches.

4 of the Biggest Easter Egg Hunts in New Jersey for 2022

If you can't get to one of the Easter egg hunts, check your local town or township. Most towns in Ocean and Monmouth Counties have their own Easter egg hunt. Each town usually does a great job putting together an Easter egg hunt together for the community. This year will be so much better than the last two years, let's get out there and have fun with our kids.

Plastic eggs are the best to hide candy, money, and anything you want to put in there. The golden eggs that the towns have are always nice, they're a little bigger prize. Happy Easter egg hunting.
