Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt
First, make a Riddle Me puzzle of about 10 clues in length. If there’s a location you want the puzzle to end at such as a closet where you’ve hidden an Easter basket, pick the closet as the ending location. Then print the puzzle out.

Then try one of the following ideas for a fun Easter Scavenger Hunt variation.
Easter Egg Treasure Hunt Clues:
One simple idea is to buy some of those hollow Easter Eggs that you might usually put candy in. Instead of candy, put riddle clues (and possibly candy) inside them at each of the locations instead of taping them up. As your children run to each location they can find the next clue.
As a variation on this for team or individual play, make each color egg unique for each player or team (ie. All green eggs are for one player, blue for another, etc…).
For younger children you could just put an egg at each location near a taped up clue. For older children you could hide the egg near the location of the clues.
Easter scavenger hunt – Cookie sharing:
Again make a riddle hunt using Riddle Me and this time print a list of ingredients to make cookies out of and put 1-2 ingredients inside each egg shell. As the hunters find each egg and pull out the next clue and ingredient, have them go to the kitchen and put that ingredient into the mix, then pick up with the next clue to find the next ingredient. Make the cookies when they’re all done and then take some to a neighbor or someone in need, or someone elderly that you know. Here’s a simple chocolate chip cookie recipe you can use, or of course use one of your own:
Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe (this is a large recipe so you have plenty to share):
1 1/2 c. white sugar
2 c. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. vanilla
6 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 lb. butter or margarine
3 cups chocolate chips (or 3 cups raisins and 1 1/2 cups oatmeal)
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes
Service Project Scavenger Hunt Idea:
Another idea is to print a list of service project items from the Riddle Me Scavenger Hunt feature and insert one into each egg. This would be better in a youth group or at least with adult supervision (never let your young children go door to door unsupervised). Then as they find each egg, they go perform a service for someone in the neighborhood.
