One of our family traditions is to put on treasure hunts for gifts for our girls. My parents did it for me as a kid and now I’m doing it for my girls. Once you’ve put together your kids’ Easter baskets, use these printable Easter egg hunt clues to send them on an Easter scavenger hunt. It’s fun for all of any age, including tweens and teens! I’ve made new clues for 2019, including a toddler version of clues so even non-readers can have fun hunting for their Easter baskets!
It’s so much fun to create these fun family experiences, and in my opinion scavenger hunts are a low/no cost activity that amplifies the gift joy. One of my love languages is gifts, so giving and receiving them are definitely a heart matter for me.
I’ve created these printable Easter scavenger hunt clues for you to hide in eggs around the house. I’ve also included a blank set of four so you can write your own or add additional clue steps if you want.
Clue #1 (chick in egg) – You might give this clue at breakfast — leads them to bed/pillow.
Clue #2 (eggs) – found on bed/pillow — leads to plate in the kitchen.
Clue #3 (flowers) – found on a plate in the kitchen — leads to a shoe.
Clue #4 (jumping chick) – found in a shoe — leads to a family photo frame. Here you can perhaps use a blank clue to write the location of the basket, or you might hide the basket nearby the picture frame, or you can keep them hunting with more clues!
Clue #5 – found at the family photo – leads to a book (perhaps a favorite one or currently reading).
Clue #6 – found at a book – leads to the computer mouse.
Clue #7 – found at the computer mouse – leads to the shower.
Clue #8 – found in the shower – leads to coat (rack or closet).
4 Blank Clues – use how you want! :)
New Easter egg hunt clues for 2019:
For 2019, I purchased some eggs for hiding around the house. The printable scavenger hunt clues can easily be folded and placed inside. I did purchase larger eggs instead of the smaller standard size to allow the clues to fit. However, with some tight folds, the clues will easily fit inside standardly sized eggs as well.
My girls will love spotting the eggs – we still do chocolate egg hunts for Easter morning!

I hope you enjoy this Easter scavenger hunt, and that the clues work well. Enjoy your family time together this Easter season!
