Surprise your Kids: Memorable Easter Egg Hunt Ideas
The Scavenger Hunt with a Twist
It is the classic scavenger hunt but with a twist. The kids will not just collect every egg they find but for specific eggs and gifts. Give each kid a list of different items such as two golden eggs, three eggs filled with a coin, a chocolate bunny, etc. When they find everything on the list, give a final clue that leads them to their Easter baskets. Use photos or drawings for kids who can’t read yet.
Fill Eggs with Non-Candy Surprises
Easter egg hunts don’t have to be all about the sweets and candy! This year make it a memorable one by filling eggs with toys and fun dollar store treats! They will love being able to play with the surprises.. and they will last longer than any candy will 🙂

Assign Everyone Separate Colors for their Easter Egg Hunt
If kids of different ages are going to participate in the hunt, make the game fair to all by asking each kid to look for only specific types of eggs and prizes. For example, assign separate color to each player and tell them to look for the eggs of only that color. Plus, tell them to take only those prizes that have their initial on them.
Easter Egg Hunt Ideas: Solve the Clues
If the participating children are a bit older, incite their imagination by involving them in treasure hunts. Create rhyming or puzzle clues and number them to keep the kids on track. Each clue will take them a step closer to the hiding place where the Easter Bunny left its basket. Don’t make the clues too difficult to figure out, as it may spoil the fun.
Map for Treasure Hunts
Draw a treasure map that leads the way to the hidden bounty. Cut the map in pieces and scatter them around the house. When all the pieces are found, kids will have to figure out where the Easter basket is hidden. Number each piece so kids face no problem to assemble it. Give them eye patches and pirate outfits (if possible) to make the hunting more interesting.
