(Family Activities) Easter Scavenger Hunt


You could just hand your kids their Easter baskets….or you could send them on a scavenger hunt for them!

Write clues on a small slip of paper and put them into plastic Easter eggs. The difficulty of this activity can be tailored to kids of all ages. For really small kids, you might tell them exactly where to look next (i.e. “Under the couch”) whereas you might make it a more challenging for the older kids (i.e. “Look under a place where you sit.”). If you are the creative type, then you might have fun making them into a poem format. Each clue should give them a hint on where to find the next clue, until they reach the final “prize”.

There are a couple of optional twists you can put on the activity:

First of all, you can give them an empty Easter basket at the beginning of the hunt and each clue can lead them to a treat that they can add to their basket.

A second idea is to have an Easter Bible verse on each clue. As they work their way through the clues, they will read the whole Easter story. The “Resurrection Rolls” can be the treasure at the of the hunt, thus making the empty tomb the final celebration point!
