How to Create an Easter Basket Scavenger Hunt

  1. Download and print out the clues I put together using clipart from Stockberry Studio.
  2. Cut the clues apart.
  3. Get a bunch of plastic Easter eggs.
  4. Put the first clue in a plastic Easter egg. Leave several jelly beans in eggs with the clue-filled egg somewhere your kids will find it. I'm thinking we'll put ours in a basket on the dining room table.
  5. Clue 2 - Repeat the jelly bean eggs with clue-filled egg thing in your refrigerator or freezer. If you don't have any of these, skip this one.
  6. Clue 3 - In the mailbox
  7. Clue 4 - In the campfire pit
  8. Clue 5 - Under a tree
  9. Clue 6 - Next to a computer
  10. Clue 7 - In the pet food
  11. Clue 8 - In the washing machine
  12. Clue 9 - By her toothbrush
  13. Clue 10 - A place where you exercise or in someone's sneakers
  14. Clue 11 - Dishwasher or sink
  15. Clue 12 - On the tv
  16. Easter basket - In a closet

The beauty of this particular scavenger hunt is that you can very easily leave one or more out. I numbered them to make it easier for you to know what to put where, but if you are cooking on Easter morning and need to leave out the dishwasher, go ahead! Just put the next clue in that spot and keep going. Or if you don't have a treadmill or a campfire pit. Or even if you want to make the hunt much shorter. Cut it down as you see fit.

Because this requires only about 15 minutes of prep, you could print these out and have them ready to go even the night before Easter.

You sort of have to wait until the last minute anyway. You couldn't hardly put the eggs and clues out before the night before!

I'd love to hear if you used these clues and how your kids liked them!
