An Easter Scavenger Hunt is the perfect way to spend a spring afternoon. This free printable scavenger hunt will keep kids of all ages busy.
WHAT IS AN EASTER SCAVENGER HUNT?
An Easter Scavenger Hunt is all about finding specific items related to Easter.
Each item on the list is something commonly seen or found around homes during the Easter season. Scavenger hunts are traditionally played outside, but can be played indoors if the weather is bad.
ITEMS TO LOOK FOR ON AN EASTER SCAVENGER HUNT
When you are putting together a scavenger hunt geared for children it helps to make sure the items they will be searching for are fairly easy to locate.
The items on this Easter Scavenger Hunt should be simple for kids to locate. It is also a good idea to look over the list ahead of time and buy any items you don’t already have at home.
- Easter Basket
- Jelly Beans
- Plastic Eggs
- Candy Bars
- Easter Grass
- Stuffed Bunny
- Egg Dye
- Baby Chick
- Hard Boiled Egg
- Bonnet or Hat
- Chocolate Bunny
HOW TO HAVE AN EASTER SCAVENGER HUNT
There are a couple of different ways to have an Easter Scavenger Hunt. It will depend on how many people are participating and the ages of the participants.
Each person playing can be on their own and have their own scavenger hunt list. It is a race to see who can find all of the items first.
You can also play with teams. Divide the people playing up into teams and each team will race to be the first to find all the items.
People can physically get each item as they find them or you can play with phones and the people or teams will take a picture of each item as they find it.
It is fun to have prizes available for the winners, but not necessary.
EASTER SCAVENGER HUNT PRIZE IDEAS
If you decide to give out prizes you will probably have even more people want to play! Here are a few ideas of fun prizes that you can give out to the winners.
Trophies are always a fun prize and I have found some really funny trophies. I love these Thumbs Up Trophies that are perfect for any age group. High Five Trophies are also a fun way to congratulate the winners.
Since this is an Easter Scavenger Hunt the prize could always be Easter related. Almost anyone would love to get an Easter basket stuffed full of candy and toys.
If you want something simple that people would work hard to win try giving out the huge One Pound Candy Bars! You may have adults trying to beat kids for a one pound candy bar.
