Easter Scavenger Hunt Clues for Hiding Kids Easter Baskets!

This post has updated for 2020 with new clues at the end of this post.

One of our family traditions is a Christmas Scavenger Hunt, it’s fun for all of any age! We also like to hide our daughters’ Easter baskets, so I decided to create some Easter Scavenger Hunt Clues to make this year extra fun and keep up with our scavenger hunt tradition.

Easter Scavenger Hunt Clues - family fun for your kids to find their Easter Basket Gifts |

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 recieving them are definitely a heart matter for me.

I’ve created four eight clues, but also included a blank set of clues so you can write your own or add additional clue steps if you want.

Clue #1 (chick in egg) – perhaps you could hide this in an egg, or give it at breakfast — leads them to bed/pillow.

Clue #2 (eggs) – found on bed/pillow — leads to plate in kitchen.

Clue #3 (flowers) – found on plate in kitchen — leads to shoe.

Clue #4 (jumping chick) – found in shoe — leads to 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.

Clues #5-8 (added on) – use how you want! :)

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

Such a great idea! And perfect for us in Maine since there is still 2 feet of snow on the ground :-/

Great! My, the east coast has had quite a winter. Here in Seattle we didn't have enough snow to open some ski hills, and others closed in February. One relay event locally that has a ski portion is having to restructure the event because there isn't enough snow to ski, which is a first.

I LOVE this! I just blogged about my Easter Morning Memories-- all about how my parents had us go on a scavenger hunt to find our Easter baskets. I love having these memories and can't wait to have kids to pass the tradition on. Thank you for sharing this! I'm so glad I found your blog on the Showlicious Link Party! :-) Dawn @ 730 Moments

This sounds like a fun tradition! We usually have several egg hunts throughout the day, but a scavenger hunt sounds even better! :)
