How to Make a Scavenger Hunt for Easter
- Decide if you are going to have the treasure hunt indoors or outdoors or both indoors and outdoors.
- Download the printable Easter egg hunt scavenger clues. Each card is available as an image or a PDF file.
- Print the clues for indoor and/or outdoors on paper or card stock. There is a color version and a black and white version for each. The black and white version is useful if you don’t have a color printer or want to save ink.
- Cut out each clue.
- Hide the clues in the relevant places. We have made an effort to use scavenger hunt clues that will be applicable to everyone. In the unlikely event you cannot use any of the different clues then either skip that clue or create a new clue using the blank clue cards. You can also use the blank cards when you want to create an egg hunt in a different place such as an Easter scavenger hunt for Kindergarteners. Some of the ready-made clues won’t be appropriate but you can type more appropriate clues on the blank typeable clue cards to complete your egg hunt.
- You can mix the order of the cards besides the first card and last card. The first card starts your little scavenger hunt and the last card with the last clue is the end of the hunt.
- At the end of the treasure hunt, you might want to hide small prizes for all participants (such as chocolate eggs) and a bigger prize for the person who found the treasure or small prizes for everyone. For younger kids, it is best to give everyone the same prize even if they didn’t find the treasure.
- When you are ready to start the activity, give the participants the first clue.
