It’s not Easter without an East egg hunt! They’re perfect for entertaining the kids and bring out the competitiveness in the adults! To help with your Easter planning, here’s some fun Easter egg and scavenger hunt ideas.
Chocolate Scavenger Hunt
Whether you’re the one running around trying to find the best hiding places or the one excitingly trying to find the hidden treasures, an Easter egg hunt is great fun for everyone. Sometimes when playing with many generations of the family and many competitive family members it can be tricky trying to make it fair. A great way to do this and add a bit of a twist, is to give the little ones a head start, or creating a map of the garden, or house and popping an Easter egg symbol on the areas that have some of the eggs. You could even write clues for everyone to follow on their hunt for the chocolatey goodness.
Scavenger Hunt clue ideas
If you haven’t created a scavenger hunt before or it’s been a while, here’s some clue ideas that might be helpful!
- If you open me up and take a look, you’ll find a nice cold treat (fridge)
- I have four legs, but I don’t have any feet. You use me when it’s time to eat (kitchen table)
- I’m here for you when it’s time to sleep (bed)
- You’ll find me with my pair ready to wear (a pair of shoes)
- A story, they say, can take you to a place far away. But a book still needs a place to stay. (bookshelf)

Below is an image of these clues ready to go – just save it and print it out.
Reverse Egg Hunt
With Easter Egg hunts its usually the parents and adults who are the ones hiding the eggs or treats, this time flip it and let the kids have a go at hiding the eggs or even coming up with their own clues for a scavenger hunt. They’ll have fun and it would be interesting to see the ideas they come up with.
Puzzle Scavenger Hunt
Easter scavenger hunts don’t always have to be done with chocolate, especially if someone has an allergy, or on the day the weather may be quite warm which could ruin the hidden chocolates. So, pick up some empty plastic eggs and fill each one with a puzzle piece, or even a piece of paper with part of a sentence, and everyone involved has to work together to find all the hidden messages/ puzzle pieces and put them together.
In the lead up to Easter, at participating retailers at TOK H Shopping Centre you’ll receive a free Easter Lindt Chocolate bunny with your purchase. You can read more about it here.
We hope you have a wonderful Easter!
