Remember how much fun you had hunting for Easter eggs? You can recreate the magic with Red Noses by hosting a Red Nose Treasure Hunt. For a low tech version, hide Red Noses around your house or backyard, and whoever finds the most Noses wins. Or up your adventure game with a homemade treasure map or mobile apps like GooseChase or Scavify that send your friends all over town for a good cause.

Red-Themed BBQ

Gingham, BBQ sauce, and sangria. What’s not to love about a backyard BBQ themed around the color red? Invite your friends to arrive dressed in red and set up a backdrop where they can pose going Nose-to-Nose. Play Nose-themed games like pin the Nose on the donkey and corn Nose (like corn hole, but with Red Noses). Enjoy a gorgeous afternoon while helping to save and change the lives of children in your community and around the world.

Red Nose Day Fitness Class
