Then try one of the following ideas for a fun Easter Egg Hunt variation.
Christian scripture based Easter egg hunt idea:
Use those hollow eggs again and inside each egg put a piece of candy along with the next clue as well as one of the scriptures below (in order). Make the puzzle length for 10 clues and insert the scriptures below in each egg location in that order (copy/paste the list into your own word processor to print them out). On the 9th clue, don’t put a piece of candy inside the egg. When your children ask why it’s empty, you can have them read the scripture inside the egg (#9 below) and explain that the tomb was empty and the true gift of Easter is the gift of Christ. Then have them find the last egg with their Easter basket or with a piece of candy in it.
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.
30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.
36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?
16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.
(9) (no candy–the tomb was empty)
4 And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great.
5 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted.
6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
36 And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.
37 But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit.
38 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?
39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
40 And when he had thus spoken, he shewed them his hands and his feet.

Easter Egg Hunt Clues (user contributed):
“I purchased Riddle Me to use as an activity for the Spring Party for my daughter’s 5th grade class. We played “Riddle Hunt” on the playground, where there were 50 “riddle” eggs hidden all over the playground (the field is very large). There are 18 kids in the class, so we grouped them into teams of 3-4, and the kids had to work as a team to solve the riddle, and they had pencils to write their answer on the riddle sheet … they also had to solve the riddle for the egg they had found before they could look for another egg. I printed answer sheets (in alphabetical order, by the first letter in the riddle, using Excel as an easy source for alphabetizing), which were distributed to the teacher and the two other parents helping with the party … and we spread out over the field. At the beginning of the hunt, each team was given two “hint vouchers”, which they could use in exchange for a hint to help them solve the riddle … but they had to obviously use their hints wisely, because each team only received two … and they could go to any one of the adults with the answer key to exchange their hint vouchers. At the end, the team with the most correctly solved riddles won (although we gave all teams the same prize for participation).
The kids had a BALL!! They even asked if they could do another one for their end-of-year party. And we did an official “Easter” egg riddle hunt on Easter Sunday for my daughter and niece, where we put their Easter Egg baskets at the last riddle location … they wanted to do it again once they were finished! *smile* So, this is a fantastic product, and I am looking forward to having more fun with it.”
