Home-Made Easter Egg Hunt

Every Easter Sunday, it’s become a bit of a tradition in our house, to have an Easter egg hunt. It started simply, with a few eggs scattered around the garden in obvious places and in plain sight. Now, the whole thing requires planning, preparation and, of course, I have to better it each year! The kids have great fun finding the clues and working as a team to solve them.

Buzymum - Every clue you need for a homemade Easter egg hunt!

I use a mix of the small hollow chocolate eggs and various mini eggs, always putting three of the same in each location (3 identical eggs+ 3 kids= no arguments!). The clues lead to their main Easter egg or present, which I usually don’t put into place until they are 3/4 way through the hunt, so that they can’t come across it accidentally, part way through. The clues can be placed in any order, but it’s best to have one of the last ones outside, so you can put the main eggs in place while they are out of the way. I would suggest numbering the clues (you may want to change my order or omit some of them, if they don’t work within your household) or keep an ordered list so that you can keep them on the right track! Some of the clues are more obvious than others so adjust them to suit your children and remember to add your child’s name where required. As our lot are early risers, I prepare the majority of the hunt the night before, using clip-top plastic boxes for the ones in the garden. The introduction is placed in our bedroom complete with three Easter baskets/ bags or buckets to collect the treats. So please copy, paste, cut, hide and enjoy!!!
