Free Printable Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt
Easter egg hunts have become a yearly tradition since I’ve had kids. We started doing it with our neighbors when my oldest and their second were about 2 years old. We’ve gone from three to six kids and it’s gotten bigger and crazier.
With the egg hunt turning into a free for all, we’ve looked for ways to make it fair for all and still have loads of fun. That’s how I came up with this Easter egg hunt printable.
How Do You Play Easter Egg Hunt?
An Easter egg hunt is such a fun activity to do while celebrating Easter.
If you’ve never done an Easter egg hunt, it’s pretty easy to set up. You get a bunch of multi-colored plastic Easter eggs, and find some fun small prizes or candy to fill the eggs up with. Then you hide the eggs around your yard or inside if the weather is bad and let the kids run around finding them!
They are sure to love the hunt and the surprises inside! Because let’s face it, they love prizes!
How Do You Make a Scavenger Hunt?
A scavenger hunt is super easy to put together. You can make it themed or not.
To make a scavenger hunt, you put together a list of items or objects, hand it out and you need to find the most that you can!
So how exactly do you combine an Easter egg hunt and a scavenger hunt?
You can start out the same way as a regular Easter egg hunt, but there are two important things to make note of.
First, make sure you keep a list of what you are putting in the eggs. The second is to make sure you have the same amount of each item for each kid. This makes it fair for each child participating in the Easter egg scavenger hunt.
Once all the items are in the eggs, you can start making your Easter egg scavenger hunt list. Fill out your list and print a copy of the scavenger hunt for each kid.
After you hide the eggs, pass out the Easter egg scavenger hunt printable and get the kids ready!
While they are hunting, they now can check inside the eggs and check off the items from scavenger hunt list to see who can find all their items first!
Adding a scavenger hunt aspect to an Easter egg hunt makes it more fun, likely last longer and also helps you control how much candy kids may get!
