The Easter egg hunt doesn’t have to just be chocolate eggs quickly hidden around the yard, we have some great ideas to spice up the hunt and make it extra fun.

1. Write clues for older children to find the hiding spots

2. Draw a treasure map – on a puzzle that they have to find all the pieces and put together to find the treats.

  • I just hide them inside and outside with an egg map in case they miss them


  • we had to put the kids in their rooms while we hid eggs around the house, we have cats and dogs so couldn’t set it up the night before, we had an awesome time!


  • I love those clues


  • Wonderful- so clever!


  • Love all the ideas thank you for sharing


  • Fantastic ideas to keep in mind for future years. Thanks for sharing.


  • Unfortunately I won’t be doing any of these this year. Won’t get to see my grandchildren so won’t see the delight on their faces when the Easter Bunny comes calling.


  • print off or draw waster egg images and hide them around the house or yard. Have a sheet with a copy of all the eggs that are hidden and then they race to find them and mark them off.


  • I love the clue sheet. As we will be home this Easter, I think we will put in a little extra effort to make Easter special. Thank you.


  • I’ve done the clues the past few years, and the kids love drawing treasure map. But I’m def going to try doing the puzzle as that looks amazing and fun!


  • I went to one at a friend’s house. As some of the little ones hadn’t started walking the older kids were allowed to pick up as many as they found but they had to be shared out evenly.We as adults just sat back and laughed and the kids hadn’t been told they had to share them.


  • So many lovely idea. I like in particular the one with puzzle pieces hidden inside plastic eggs!


  • These look great and very creative.


  • We’ll have to be creative this year and possibly do a treasure hunt and we usually do a big easter egg hunt with the local community.


  • We have a Body Shop beauty hunt organised for Easter Sunday morning for our girls.
