Easter scavenger hunt clues
Share the story

The Easter bunny is a welcome guest after Santa has come and gone. 

In our household, the scavenger hunt is something the whole family looks forward to every year. 

Once your kids are old enough, instead of handing them a basket so they can gather eggs placed in plain sight, why not make your scavenger hunt more exciting by making the eggs a little harder to find and adding some fun clues? You can help younger children read the clues, or if they have older siblings they can solve the clues together. 

If you are looking for some ideas for scavenger hunt clues to give your kids an extra challenge this Easter, here are some fun clues you can print out for free.

Remember to choose clues that are age-appropriate to tailor the difficulty level to your kids’ ages and skill levels. 

Also, here are some extra clues you can incorporate to create your own family Easter Scavenger Hunt clues.
