1. Checklist Easter Egg Hunt
Provide each child with a list of the type of eggs he or she must find. As the child finds the items, he can check them off of the list. The child who completes his or her checklist first wins a prize. Here is a sample Easter egg checklist:
2. Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt:
Use plastic eggs with notes inside to create a backyard scavenger hunt. Give each child a different clue to start on. You can use a combination of regular eggs and clue eggs, or just clue eggs. You can also have the clues pertain to where they can find a prize. Possible clues are:
3. Even and Odd Easter Egg Hunt
For a fun variation of an Easter egg hunt, write odd or even numbers on each Easter egg. A decorative way to do this is to make Easter Crayon Eggs. Assign each child to hunt for odd or even numbered eggs. Children can only gather the eggs they are assigned (only even or odd numbered eggs).
4. Easter Prize Egg Hunt
This Easter egg hunt makes use of plastic Easter eggs. Inside each plastic egg, add prizes such as chocolate candies, stickers, tattoos, and small toys. To a few of the eggs, add larger prizes in them such as money, gift certificates or movie tickets.
5. Find Your Name Egg Hunt:
6. Easter Egg Treasure Hunt
Hide eggs and then draw a map indicating where each egg is hidden for future reference. Inside each plastic egg, insert a clue to where the next egg is hidden. If you plan to use real eggs, tape the clues to the outside of each egg. Provide the clue to where the first egg and then children continue finding eggs until the last egg is found. Insert a special prize inside the final egg if using plastic eggs or hide the prize with the final egg if using real eggs.
