How To Play
Now it is time to hide the eggs and play. Begin by hiding the eggs in places they cannot be seen. Try hiding them in drawers, under couches, and other areas that make it hard and interesting to have to find. Once all the eggs are hidden, kids can then begin searching for the eggs. Each time they find an egg that is one clue closer to the big surprise.
Once all of the eggs have been found they should be given to the party game host who can then ensure all 12 clues have been found. Once all 12 clues have been found kids can now have the top prize. The prize often consists of candy or some other great item such as a toy.
If there are a large amount of kids it may be better to break it down into groups. To play with groups simply make two different sets of Easter eggs and fill them both with clues. Make one team one color, and the other team another color and kids are only allowed to find their team’s color eggs. Once the team completes all of their eggs they may bring it to the game host to see if they won their prize.
Although many people play scavenger hunts in different ways this is a fun way to play a resurrection Easter egg scavenger hunt. Not only is it fun for kids but it is also fun for the whole family. It is a great way to get the whole family to interact and a great way to teach kids about the different stories in the Bible.
