Easter is one of our favourite holidays in our house!
I mean, whats not to love, the sun is (sometimes) shining, the kids are off school and theres more chocolate than you can possibly eat!
I’ll confess, my daughters used to get so much chocolate for Easter off all of their relatives we couldn’t possibly eat it all, we would end up giving food away!
These days, we tend to gift them a chocolate egg (of course), a few minis and then other items such as gardening items, seeds, grow your own sets, pyjamas, activity sets that sort of stuff – BUT my kids highlight of Easter (and I think this is why they love it so much) is my Easter egg scavenger hunt!
They have so much fun running around the house and garden, searching for clues, finding little jokes and working out where the next clue could be hidden until they get to their end result – their big eggs and or treats!
This year, we want you all to join us on this fun Easter mission!
You’re kids will love it!
and the best part is, that I have taken all the hard work out for you. All you need to do is download your printables and hit that print button! But fear not my non printing friends, there’s a whole box set option just for you! … and it includes one of my very own handmade easter bunny bags too!
Check out our easter hunt video from 2020 –
The set up – I use the same plastic eggs each year, the ones that pop open, like the kind you find inside a kinder egg. You can pick these up pretty cheap online or at the craft stores, but you don’t have to have these, just hiding the clues is enough.
Each egg gets a clue inside. Along with the clue, I like to add a little something like a mini egg, toy chick or a little joke.. again, you do not need to do this in able to do the scavenger hunt.
Each clue leads on to the next one. and so on and so on until you reach the end of your hunt.
There is no particular order to do this – and I have designed 24 clues to try and cover all basis for all households.
Eg. ‘The next clue is such a breeze, it’s hiding where you put the ice cream to ______!’ FREEZE! Quick, head to the freezer and find your next clue! Inside the freezer, the next clue could say ‘Wow! That was quick, two minutes flat, now go take a look under the door ___!’ MAT! Etc, you get the idea. Just leave your next clue where your clue before ends.
You can choose to do however many clues you like, there is no obligation to do all 24 at all!
Included in the set are 24 clue cards, 12 jokes, an instruction leaflet and an answer sheet (not that I think you will need it).
For non digital downloads, you will receive your set in the post along with a handmade bunny bag to hide your endgame treats in!
TIP: I use two sets of eggs, one for each child. For example, child one gets pink eggs with her clues inside placed around the house and child two gets blue eggs with her own clues to solve. This way theres no squabbling 😉
