I don’t know why, but my kids are REALLY getting into the Easter fun lately. They keep talking about eggs, their baskets, and asking all sorts of questions about the Easter bunny. With all the jibber-jabber, it’s hard for me to ignore the fact that it’s fast approaching. Ugh! One of the things that’s a long-standing tradition in my family is an Easter Scavenger Hunt. Who doesn’t love searching for eggs or other little surprises, huh?
Every single year in my youth we did a HUGE Easter Scavenger Hunt. I’m not talking each kid had a few eggs to find, I mean we all had DOZENS of candy-or-treat filled eggs to search for. We looked forward to it for months, and there’s many happy (and funny) memories involving those times.
One of the difficult things with scavenger hunts is keeping it simple enough that even my 2 year old can pitch in the search. My sweet sis-in-law put together a few cute poems that are fun-yet-simple enough that all ages can join in! Wonder Woman reads them aloud, then they all assist with figuring it out!

This isn’t exactly how we did it growing up, but for us this is a grand old time! I’m not sure what your household does, but we try to avoid too many treats (I make enough suger-filled snacks already). Instead, I try to nab simple-yet-cute-and-budget-friendly surprises such as toys, games, coloring books, crayons, and things like that. Plus, it keeps them busy AFTER the hunt is over…BONUS!
