Easter Egg Hunt Game

Easter might still seem like a distant dream but you just know with the days getting a little longer and with the bulbs starting to rise above ground, that it will be here quicker than we think and then we’ll all be running around in an attempt to make sure that everything is ready for the Easter Bunny! So let’s look at a bit for forward planning that you can complete at any time.

For this year’s Easter egg hunt, why not do something a little different to make the hunt a little more exciting? Normally on an egg hunt, it’s the eggs that are found directly and there is little co-operation between the chasers.  Usually it’s everyone for them self and this can lead to friction between siblings.  With this idea, they need to work as a team to find the ultimate prize, the Easter Bunny’s stash! The idea is to take the scavenger hunt staple of creating a map, but create it using a blank jigsaw puzzle.  It can be as decorative as you like and when it’s finished, and the individual pieces hidden, the kids search for the puzzle pieces, and then following the reconstructed map to the final prize.
The blank puzzle doesn't need to have too many pieces and they are available from most craft stores and toy shops. And if you don’t want to purchase a puzzle, you could even look at making your own either creating it straight onto stiff craft paper Easter Bunny Fancy Dress Costume Ref:AS03100Pand then cutting it out or by using your computer so that you can include readily available clip-art images.  Once printed out, this can either be laminated and then cut into interlocking shapes or stuck onto card to make it thicker. As the pieces are being collected, you can either assemble the jigsaw as you go – which risks the older children trying to pre-guess the final destination, or you could leave solving it until all of the pieces have been found! And if the Easter Bunny is planning to attend your celebrations, check out our range of Easter costumes here!
And why use this only at Easter? This type of activity provides the perfect party game for any group of children, although with larger groups the more jigsaw pieces will be required to be hidden so that there is some time for the excitement to grow!  Although children appear to become less interested in these games as they grow older, in my opinion, they remember things like this from their childhood forever. At some point in the future they’ll look back on games like this and thank you for taking the time to create them. And the Easter Bunny will be happy too!
