How to have an Easter egg treasure hunt


Easter egg treasure hunt

Turn the traditional egg hunt into a treasure hunt by arming them with a list of what to find and a general guide of where. Helps them learn recognition and counting too.

You'll need:

  • Cardboard
  • Coloured pencils


Plan your fun Easter egg treasure hunt, draw a map with picture clues and the number of eggs in each location; leave a hunting pail for each kid with the treasure map - get them hunting.


How to devise a thrilling Easter egg hunt:

1. Think up three places in your house or yard to hide the eggs and do your best drawing of the places - we used a cubby house, tree and the couch. Next to each place, draw the various items you've hidden in each spot and the number of them. Include a box underneath so the child can tick off the box once they've counted the right number.


2. Place the card and a pencil into the hunting pail and send them off! The child can count up their loot and tick the boxes as they go.
