The Easter egg hunt

An Easter egg hunt is where you hide Easter eggs around your home and garden so your kids can hunt around and find them all. Your egg hunt can be as long, short or challenging as you like but you should tailor it so it's suitable for the age range at your party. For example, you can provide Easter egg hunt clues for older kids or you can go without clues and let younger children find the Easter eggs in easier hiding places.

There's nothing more exciting to kids than finding a pile of treasure, so make sure you get lots of different Easter treats that all your guests will enjoy, it doesn't just have to be chocolate eggs, you can hide little Easter toys too.

If you haven't got time to do all the clues, don't worry, as the kids will have just as much fun hunting down the Easter treats without clues - but if you have got time, then we've provided some easy Easter egg hunt clue ideas that will make your egg hunt even more exciting.

Write down the following clues on some coloured card and give them out to your little guests so they can get hunting for their treats. You can also try hiding some extra 'getting closer' or 'red hot' clues near the Easter eggs for younger kids.

My children are a bit older 11 and 13. We usually set clues but this year we are trying a wordsearch with locations hidden in the grid. It was so easy to do. Lots of online wordsearch creators to choose from. My quicker than trying to think of clever clues! I will let you know how it goes.
