A New Twist on Easter Egg Hunts in Clarksville TN.

If you are tired or bored with the traditional egg hunt you have each Easter time, let me share an idea that I have used with my grandchildren. It is an Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt.

Easter Egg Hunt in ClarksvilleThis is very adaptable to very young ages and to older children too as each child has their own hunt tailored to their skill level. The children that don't read yet must have an accompanying adult. You start all the children at the same time (we start by giving them the first egg (the clue is inside the egg) while on the front porch. They tend to finish just the hunt about the same time. Here is how to do it the Egg Scavenger Hunt.

  1. For each year of age of the child you have a clue hidden in an egg. For instance a 3-yr-old will have a total of three eggs with the last egg sending them to their prize box. A 10-yr-old would have 10 eggs.
  2. Each egg has simple instructions to lead them to the next egg such as go look for the yellow egg under the tree near the front porch. That egg has instructions inside leading them to the next colored egg and so on.
  3. I like to send the kids all over the yard. Since they are looking for their specific color of egg in a specific location, any other eggs they see on the way don't matter to them.
  4. The older children find this exciting and not babyish because their clues are harder and the eggs are well concealed. 
  5. The final egg takes each child to their hidden prize box. I use plastic shoe boxes and fill them with all kinds of fun stuff from the dollar store, money, a DVD or two, Easter candy and such. Each child gets some of the same things but they also have things unique and appropriate to their ages. 

It takes a bit of time to write all the clues and hide all the eggs but to make it easier I make a list for the parents with each child's eggs and let the parents go hide them in the right spots before the hunt begins. Give it a try and if you have questions contact me for clarification.

This is the most exciting Egg Hunt my grandkids have every been to. I even use camouflaged eggs for the older kids to make it more challenging. It is a new twist on Easter Egg Hunts in Clarksville TN.

I did this a few times with my own kids, but haven't tried it yet with the grandbabies.  Since there is still so much snow here, our hunt will be indoors this year.  It may be just the right time to try it!

That would be more fun for all as it makes them do more than just try and find as many eggs as they can while keeping the younger ones from getting many

Debbie- I love this idea, and I'd bet it is as much fun for the adults as well.  I'm passing this idea on to my nieces.

Delightful, Debbie. It reminds me of the Thanksgiving treasure hunts my mother would plan for my brothers and me.

Debbie, when I used to babysit I had one family with four young kids and to keep them entertained (and kill LOTS of time til bedtime) I did scavenger hunts all of the time! They loved it! Yes, it takes some time and creativity, but so worth it and you are teaching them problem-solving skills at the same time!

This is a wonderful idea Debbie Reynolds !!! I love the skill level by age. Often the little one's lose out to the experienced older kids on a traditional Easter Egg Hunt. Scavenger hunts are so much fun and the prize being a box full of goodies is such a cool idea. Thanks!

How cool!  I don't think we ever outgrow the thrill of an Easter Egg hunt!  With the right prize at the end (and some of that Easter candy) I'd join the search myself!

Funny Joan Whitebook. It could be a fun adult game too though we haven't approached that yet.
