There are games that mark childhood! And the treasure hunt is one of them. So, taking advantage of Easter is coming, we gathered in this post 10 Easter treasure hunt ideas. So, enjoy and get ready to play a lot at Easter and organize the best egg hunt ever!
01 – Riddles
You can make riddles in your Treasure hunt to amuse children. For example, in this game, the freezer clue is “The Cold will never bother me”. For television “I always keep you company when you are alone”. This is an Egg Hunt for children aged 8 to 13 and therefore the tracks are more “difficult”. In fact, to help you we have the “Time Track Collection“. It is a pdf that we have prepared with tips to use inegg hunt. To use them you just need to download, print and cut. Very easy!
02 – Treasure hunt with clues … on the eggs!
Have you seen those plastic eggs sold in party stores, in Elo 7 and even in the free market? So did you know that they can yield a super creative Easter egg hunt? Take a look at the idea released by The Seasoned Mom.
03 – Following the paws
When Patricia Marinho’s daughter Gabi was very young and still didn’t know how to read, Pati decided that, even without knowing how to read, she would have her Easter Egg Hunt. The whole story of these beautiful paws that you can see in the photo is here in this post. It is worth reading, not only to learn how to make footprints, but how to enter the Easter Bunny costume.
04 – Treasure hunt with colorful clues
Look at the cool idea of The Good Housekeeping! Taking advantage of the same colored plastic eggs and still teaching small children about colors. Click here to see how the game is.
05 – Treasure hunt with drawn clues
Another option for the little ones, very simple and easy to do, is the one where you design the tracks. In fact, if you have children of different ages, ask the older ones to draw the clues and the youngest will hunt for eggs. So, everyone plays! This idea is from the Trucos de familia website. The site is all in Spanish, but if you need, there is always a Google translator to help 🙂
06 – Hunting words
In this post here, Patricia Marinho shows how she did a treasure hunt, which could be eggs, using a word search as a clue. The next clue was on the phone, but for kids to find out which clue it was, she did the following: a word search game in which first thing to do and put the letters that make up the word phone. Then, fill in the other spaces with the letters that form the word LOVE and I wrote the following verse
“Cut the letters
of the word LOVE
and make a word
with what is left ”
You can do a little work, but you can set up an Easter hunt with several clues that need to be deciphered with word searches.
07 – Balloon treasure hunt
Lara Jane Townsend’s pinterest is full of good ideas. And one of them is the treasure hunt using balloons. She is super creative and instead of putting each clue in a balloon she proposes a more fun and different way and find the eggs. Click here to see how she did it.
08 – Treasure hunt with string
A lot of people think that you can only play Egg Hunt or Treasure when the kids are big. Only not! In this post Patcamargo tells how to use a string of string as an trail for an adventure. The children, blindfolded, follow the thread, find the clues and perform the tasks. Whoever does everything first, wins (but works for one child, too).
