Easter Egg Hunt 1     Treasure Hunt

1.   Reverse Easter Egg Hunt

Have your children make at least five eggs each and hide them around the house. When they are done hiding them, the parents look for them and the child whose egg is found last wins a prize.  Image Source: Shelterness

2.   Treasure Hunt

Keep things interesting by setting up a treasure hunt for kids. Give each child a map using pictures for those who can't read yet. Cut out a picture of a chair, for instance, or draw a coffee table to show them where the eggs are. Make the clues more tricky for older kids, for instance a specific novel on the book shelf or a certain herb growing in the garden.  Image Source: Childhood 101

5.   Alphabet Egg Hunt

Write letters on the eggs and set the kids loose on their egg hunt. Offer extra Easter prizes for the kid who makes the most words from their egg stash.  Image Source: See Vanessa Craft 

6.   Hunt By Colour

Colour code the eggs you hide according to age so that means the younger kids can hunt for the easier to find red eggs, while the older kids go for gold. It means little kids have an equal chance to find the eggs while also fostering a co-operative spirit amongst the kids who will try to help the others gather the eggs they aren't entitled to.

8.   Follow the Bunny

Make bunny footprints near each hidden Easter egg to give the kids some easy hints as to where the eggs are hidden.   You can also try making the footprints out of plain paper or even sprinkle some talcum powder and put a bunny paw print in it with your fingers.  Image Source: Kidspot

Checklist Egg Hunt

 11.   Checklist Egg Hunt

For large Easter Egg Hunts, make checklists for each child for them to complete. Give each child a basket with a checklist and pencil in it and instruct the kids to find ONLY what is on their checklist and no more, otherwise someone else would be without enough. Make all of the checklists the same for each child and make sure you have enough eggs hidden so that everyone can complete theirs. You can have a grand prize too, for whichever child completes his checklist first by finding all of the items the fastest!  Image Source: MzTeachuh
