Yes of course! If the weather is bad outside on Halloween, you can take the hunt indoors! Just hide them around the house and let the kids go on a spooky hunt indoors.

Yes! This is actually super fun. All you will need is the same supplies as above and some mini glow sticks that will fit inside the eggs. Then hide the eggs as usual in the dark and take the kids out on a spooky, late-night egg hunt.
