Easter Treasure Hunt

Easter comes at such a beautiful time of year with lambs, bunnies, lovely spring flowers and warmer weather to enjoy. If weather permits, it’s great fun to bring your Easter Egg hunt outside, and re-brand it with a treasure hunt twist, if unfortunately, the weather isn’t nice, you can make the treasure hunt indoors.


We have a family tradition of an Easter Treasure Hunt in the afternoon. All the cousins get together to search for chocolate treasure. Before that can occur, the Moms get together to draw up the clues (and enjoy a glass of wine). We come up with around ten clues & each clue points the children to a different location.


The Hunt begins at home, when the kids are handed the first clue. If you have young kids, stick with easy clues so that they can figure out where they are meant to go. For older kids, it’s fun to make the clues into riddles or rhymes that are more challenging so that they have to think through where they need to go. For example, for younger children, you could hide a clue in the mailbox and write, “find your first clue where the postman makes his delivery.”
