These free printable Indoor Easter Egg Hunt Clues make it easy to set up a fun scavenger hunt for eggs on Easter morning.
Kids will have fun solving the riddles to locate each Easter egg to fill up their baskets.
Why You’ll Love These Indoor Easter Egg Hunt Clues
Sure, you can just randomly hide several eggs around the house and let your child search for them.
Some problems I’ve run into with that approach though are:
- Kids often end up looking anxiously in all sorts of places, often leaving a mess in their wake
- Every once in awhile an egg isn’t found until weeks later because you forget everywhere you hid them
- The hunt is either over too quickly or takes way too long, depending on how well you hid the eggs
An Easter egg scavenger hunt solves all of these problems. The clues will direct kids to very specific locations.
So, you’ll know exactly where to hide them. And your child will know exactly where to look once they crack a clue.
The clues are intentionally written to be fairly easy to solve so that kids won’t get frustrated or confused. They also lead kids to areas that are common in all households.
Finally, since Spring weather can be unpredictable, all of these Easter egg hunt clues keep the fun indoors. That way, if cold or rainy weather prevents an outdoor hunt, you won’t have to change plans.
How to Use These Egg Hunt Clues
Starting the Hunt
The card announcing the hunt isn’t a riddle. It simply tips your child off that the egg hunt will be searching for clues to find the eggs.
Because of this, I recommend placing the first card in a place where your child won’t miss it. Perhaps this will be taped to their bedroom door, on the bathroom mirror, or maybe the refrigerator door.
Depending on your Easter traditions, you may plan to start or end your egg hunt with an Easter basket.
If you start with the basket, it provides the child with an easy way to carry the eggs as the hunt progresses. If you go this route, you can place the first card or the first clue in the basket.
The final clue directs your child to mom or dad to collect a treasure. So, if you start with the basket, plan to have a fun toy, treat, or special announcement (e.g. “we’re going on a picnic” or “we’re going to play a family board game”).
If you end with the basket, the basket of goodies will be the treasure at the end of the Easter treasure hunt.
Egg Hunt Clues
As for the remaining clues, you can either hide these inside eggs at each location. It’s up to you whether or not to include other treats inside the eggs with the clues.
Or, you can tape them to a wall, window, door, or other hard surface at each location, with an egg placed conspicuously nearby.
The point of these printable egg hunt clues is to make Easter morning easier for you. You don’t need a lot of special equipment or supplies to use them.
You will however, need a means to print the clues. So, make sure you have:
And because these are for an egg hunt, you’ll also need some plastic eggs.
These supplies aren’t necessary, but will add some extra fun to your Easter treasure hunt.
