Easter Egg Hunt Ideas

The secret of a successful Easter Egg Hunt is to tailor it to the ages of the children involved.

Youngest children - Easter Egg Trail:
Give each child a small basket to collect eggs. Lay out a little trail of miniature eggs for each child from a starting point - pacing the eggs at just the right distance so that they can easily find the next one. At the end of the trail, put a larger egg or a small gift. We suggest no more than 10 small eggs in the trail!

All over Easter Egg Hunt:
If you have a large group of children, you may find it easiest to just hide a number of eggs and send the kids out to find them. Obviously this can end up being to the advantage of older children - and pushy children! You might want to set limits of eggs for each child, after which you assign an older child to help a younger child to find their quota.

Easter Egg Hunt Hopalong:
Vary your Easter egg hunt by turning it into a three-legged race! Tie pairs of children loosely together around two ankles and send them off to find their eggs as a couple. They will need to develop some teamwork to be successful!

Scavenger Egg Hunt:
Children will enjoy the excitement of trying to find a particular set of objects rather than just hunting for eggs. Give each child a list of things to look for and bring back. This could include a certain number of blue Easter eggs, a miniature chick, a miniature Easter bonnet, a packet of jelly beans, and so on. Older children might have to hunt for less obvious articles such as a yellow pencil, a green article of clothing, a smile, etc.

Bible Verse Hunt:
This works best with older kids (or at least with pairs of children, one older). Give out a "clue" in the form of a Bible verse. The verse provides a clue to the location of the first treat and the next clue. Allow 5 or 6 clues, and then a bigger treat at the end. Examples of clues could be to use a verse about rocks, pointing to the rock garden, a verse about sleeping pointing to the bed, and so on. For younger children you could highlight portions of the verse to give extra help.

Online Easter Food Scavenger Hunt:
Ask older children to find out the origin and meaning of various Easter food traditions, such as: the dying of Easter eggs, the Easter egg, hot cross buns, pretzels, Greek Easter bread, ham, lamb and so on.

Action Packed Easter Egg Hunt:
Instead of hiding chocolate eggs, hide plastic eggs. Inside each egg hide a clue with some action that has to be performed by the child that finds it. You could include actions like "jump 10 times", "sing a nursery rhyme", sit down on the ground and count to 10", "dance a jig", "hop like the Easter bunny" and so on. When each child has done a certain number of actions, they can be pointed in the direction of a prize!
