Easter Scavenger Hunt Printables
My original Easter Egg Hunt Kit had lots of different printables to set up a scavenger hunt at home and included:
- Easter Egg Hunt Poster
- Easter Egg Hunt This Way Poster
- Easter Egg Hunt That Way Poster
- Easter Egg Hunt Right Arrow
- Easter Egg Hunt Left Arrow
- Set of 4 ‘Here’s A Clue’ Cards
- Set of 4 Bunny Pawprints
- Easter Bunnies – Six Colours
- Easter Egg Banner – Letter Eggs
What it didn’t include were pre-written clues. That all changes today, as I’ve got a set of 12 Easter hunt clues for you to download and print at home! Remember to go and print off the original kit too as it matches the clue cards in this post.
I have included links to some of the products that I used in this project. If you purchase via the links I may earn a small commission.
I’m going to be honest here and confess that I have never done an Easter scavenger hunt with clues before. I’ve hidden Easter eggs for the kids to find, but that’s about it. So I’m not sure if the way I’ve written out these clues is the right way, but regardless of that, I hope you and your kiddos have FUN!
How to use the Easter Scavenger Hunt Clues
I am really hoping that my explanation makes sense… It’s kinda easier just to do, rather than explain. Although I’m pretty sure I’m making this sound a lot more difficult than it is because I use too many words when explaining how to do things as I wan’t to be as clear as I possibly can!
So, the idea with this set of clues is that you hide cards 2 to 12, and give card 1 to your child/ren to start their scavenger hunt. Clue card 1 leads to clue card 2, which leads to clue card 3, and so on, until they get to clue card 12 which will lead them to their final prize – Easter basket/eggs/chocolate bunny/candy/other treats.*
*delete as appropriate!
Just to confuse – you hide clue card 2 in the place that is the answer to clue card 1, then clue card 3 in the place that is the answer to clue card 2, clue card 4 in the place that is the answer to clue card 3, and so on. I’ve included the answers/hiding locations in the printable – the download is further down the page.
A quick example: The answer to clue number 1 is curtains (or drapes, or blinds). That is where you will hide clue card 2 (and where the kids will find #2) . The answer to clue number 2 is slippers, so that is where you hide clue card 3 (and where the kids will find #3), and so on.
The last clue card is number 12. The answer is actually named within the clue: “found beneath a table” – I’ve left it generic so that you could use any table in your house. It might help that it is a table in a room that hasn’t been explored yet in this Easter scavenger hunt!
You can fold or roll up the clues and place them inside plastic eggs and hide the eggs. If more than one child is playing, maybe have different colours for each one so that they don’t squabble over their clues. And don’t forget an Easter basket, or bucket/pail for them to keep their eggs safe as the scavenge for more. You could also leave smaller treats along with each clue – it doesn’t have to be candy or chocolate. Depending on the size of the plastic eggs you could pop other fillers like stickers, erasers, hair ties, squishies, Minifigs, finger puppets… or just have the one big prize at the end.
Ultimately the idea of a scavenger hunt is to have fun, and solve the clues! Just make sure you set everything up before the children wake up, or be very stealthy otherwise!
Even though I’m British and live in the UK, I do have a worldwide audience, with readers from lots of different countries. I have tried my best to keep the answers/locations for each clue to be commonplace in most homes. If you really can’t use one of my clues, I’ve also included blanks so that you can write out your own.
