Hunt to Music
Put on your favorite easter themed music and crank up the volume to increase the festive fun.
Got a few hunters?
Print and cut out multiple PDFs to increase the size and scope of the hunting grounds. Create teams to tackle the hunt. If you have a mixed-age group of children, it’s a good idea to balance out each team with older and younger children. Younger kids will love hunting with their big buddies and older kids will enjoy helping their younger counterparts discover the clues!
Add a time Limit and Prizes!
Increase the excitement and the challenge by adding a time limit. If you’ve printed and hidden multiple images, have kids put an additional check by each picture they find. Count the checks at the end. First, see who found the most of each image, then see who found the most images overall. Prizes add another layer of enjoyment. Offer a treat or special privilege to the winners in each category and to the overall winner.
Take advantage of the educational opportunities
Make sure younger children practice saying the names of the items represented in the pictures several times. For older children, write the name of the item on the back of the picture and hide face down. Encourage their reading skills by having them read the word out loud before they turn over the picture. They’ll love flipping the cut-out over and having their reading reinforced!
