There are a ton of different hunts at Easter time. I love the typical Easter hunt with the line of children and the candy and eggs just thrown all over the place, then you blow the whistle or say go and the kids go running and its all over in about 1 minute because there is a stampede of children grabbing everything in sight. It’s never much of a hunt as much as it is a blood bath. That’s why I like the idea of having an Easter scavenger hunt instead, we are doing this on Easter morning. My kid’s baskets are going to have a few larger candy items and a few fun things to kick off the warm weather like bubbles, chalk and squirt guns and then we are doing this scavenger hunt.
At each location of the Easter scavenger hunt there is going to be a bag of candy for the kids to share and divide with each other. I like to see them working together and putting a little effort into their hunt. I made these poems from the Easter Bunny. The idea is that you put the letter from the Easter Bunny at the first location along with the first clue; I am going to have the letter printed out and sitting in an envelope on the couch along with the clue in a plastic egg. Just plan out the order you want the clues to go, and put a clue and a prize at each. There is a final message from the Easter Bunny that you place in the last location. This is a fun way to give your kids a Easter hunt without just tossing eggs and candy all over the place. We always end up going to 3 or 4 hunts anyway, so I like to have something different in the mix. I made cute pdf printables of the poems for the scavenger so you can print them out, cut them up and place them in the locations along with a treat or prize. Also at the end of this post, I just typed the text of the poems so you can copy and paste them onto your own cute papers if you want.
