How do you do the Easter egg treasure hunt?
There are a couple of different ways to tackle an Easter egg hunt and they are both fun for younger and older children.
The first option is to simply hide Easter eggs around the garden for children to find. You can hide multicolored plastic eggs with small treats inside them or even small easter eggs.
This is a good option for kids who may get frustrated easily and just want some simple fun. I’ve created some cute tokens that you can hide inside the eggs that children will love.
There are pre-written tokens and blank ones for you to use.

Another option is to use clues to lead the participants around the home or garden to find the eggs.
You can print the clues out and follow them to the surprise at the end or put the clues in small plastic eggs with a treat. You will follow the clues to find the next egg until the end.
Depending on how many children are playing, I would recommend having an equal amount of eggs to find per child.
It would be a good idea to choose one egg color for each child or if you are hiding chocolate easter eggs, you could add a colored sticker or name tag on the egg.
This makes the game fair for every child and avoids any tears and tantrums if one child collects more eggs than another. Just make the kids aware that they must only take their own eggs.
Setting up your egg hunt
It’s easy to set up an Easter egg hunt and it’s also fun! You can use our free Easter egg printables to help make the setup so much easier too.
Our clues can be used in any order, so it’s up to you whether the children go room to room or you randomize the clues so the kids have to run around and get tons of exercise!
Either way, use our free printable easter egg hunt signs to help direct children the right way. There are two sizes, large and small with a written set and a blank set.
You can simply cut out the signs and stick them around the house or create signs for the garden! I think the smaller ones look cute stuck in a flower pot or attached to a bird feeder.
Easter egg hunt signs
Why not make some cute baskets for the children to collect their eggs. You can make an easter basket beforehand with the children as a fun easter activity or simply buy some.
Dollar Tree has so many cute Easter baskets that are really affordable and there are so many different styles. You can actually get all sorts of Easter goodies from Dollar Tree, including super cute speckled eggs.

Printable Easter Scavenger Hunt Clues
Want to get straight to it and print our free printable clues? You will find three different sets of clues – written clues, visual clues, and blank clue templates.
You can hide the clues inside a small plastic egg or simply cut them out and place them down.
Pre-written Easter egg clues
The written easter egg clues are perfect for children who can read and understand rhymes to figure out and follow the clues.
Visual Easter egg clues
These visual clues follow the same structure as the written clues but are perfect for kids who are younger or can’t read. Rather than a rhyme or riddle, the clue simply has a picture of where the clue is hidden. Little kids might need some guidance with their hunt.
Blank Easter egg clue templates
If you need more clues for your egg hunt then you can use our blank easter egg clue templates to write your own!
