Send the kids on an oogly Easter Egg Hunt!

A Scavenger Hunt That Will Delight All!

How about putting a twist on the traditional Easter Egg hunt this year?   Children love to search for treasures so why not make the hunt for ‘special’ eggs more than just a mad dash!   Instead of racing to find the most eggs, send your children on a search for the hidden Easter basket of treats.

Start by numbering the plastic eggs that will hold your clues (you can use stickers or a sharpie pen and 6 eggs).   If you have some clay, have your child make an oogly bunny.    Tell your child that oogly is going to hide an Easter surprise and to find that surprise they must first go on an egg hunt to find the oogly bunny.

Hide the basket of treats, then write the clue to its location and place it inside egg number 6.  

Next, find a spot for this egg, placing the oogly bunny right next to it.  Write a clue to its hiding place, and put that in egg number 5.  Continue in this fashion until you’ve hidden all but the number 1 egg, then hand this egg to your child to begin the hunt.

Happy Hunting and Happy Easter!
