ALTERNATIVES To The Typical Egg Hunts
** Pirate treasure hunt
If you have a child who dreams of finding buried treasure, a pirate-themed scavenger hunt is a slam dunk and surprisingly easy to organize. Begin by creating a series of clues that kick off the treasure hunt. The clues can be personalized to familiar things in your child’s life, for instance, “Ahoy, matey, go to the place where we keep your toothbrush.” If you prefer to follow in another captain’s footsteps, the Lil’ Luna blog has excellent ideas for creating clues and shares a free printable treasure map:
** Super eggs!
Here's an idea that can be tailored for both older and younger kids. For smaller superheroes, hide figurines inside Easter eggs and turn them loose. Once they discover what’s inside the eggs, they will have a new collection of toys to play with. For kids who are a little older, use the free superhero Bingo printable from the Big D and Me blog and print out the superhero game cards and tuck them into the eggs. Whoever gets a superhero Bingo first wins!
** Obstacle course egg hunt
Sugar and children can often lead to a hairy holiday, so why not get them moving while they find their treats? In each egg, include a physical activity to be completed. Ideas such as “bunny hops” and “pencil rolls” come from The Seasoned Mom blog, but feel free to add in Easter-centric ideas such as “carrot kicks” or “crack the egg” rolls. Once the children complete every activity you’ve hidden in the eggs, you’ll have tired-out kids who’ve earned every bit of that Easter candy.
** Top-secret mission hunt
If we get a rainy Easter Sunday this year, here's a fun indoor option. Fill an Easter basket with secret agent props like those found on the Shim & Sons blog (link below) and include a manila envelope labeled “top secret.” Inside the envelope is a list of evidence to find. Hide items such as a water gun, stolen loot (pennies), and precious stones (plastic beads) around the house and let the hunt begin. For added fun, set a timer and see who can find the most items the quickest.
