Scavenger hunt ideas for kids at Easter time – where do you start? Thankfully, the occasion of Easter gives us many ideas and themes to work with. Easter bunnies, eggs, chickens, and other related things can provide a good basis to design your scavenger hunt around. And if you are trying to get the kids minds away from the chocolate this Easter, incorporating non-chocolate prizes and clues into the scavenger hunt is a great way to go about it!
One of the best ways to make your scavenger hunt is to draw a map. A copy of the map is given to each participant. It can contain either word based riddles and clues, or pictures (or both), depending upon the age of the children. Try and adhere to an Easter theme as much as possible by making each clue lead to an Easter egg or other related object. The map contains a clue or image that leads to the next clue – for example, if you are holding the hunt outdoors, a drawing of the garden shed or a particular pot plant can work well. Alternatively, short rhymes with subtle hints are great for the old children.
So where can you hold an Easter scavenger hunt? Try in the house, the backyard, at a local park, or even throughout your neighborhood if you live in a close knit community. A scavenger hunt can be organized as a school event in the play yard, or perhaps even in the local shopping mall for the older kids. The only limit is your imagination.
