More Ideas for Easter Scavenger Hunt
Here is a great idea for celebrating Easter differently this year! Ask several neighbors to join you in creating a walking scavenger hunt in your neighborhood. Included in this scavenger hunt are two main items, cute Easter riddles/jokes and Bible verses highlighting the Passion Week. On the attached printable forms are eight cards for each. Ideally you would ask eight neighbors to join you (adapt accordingly). Assign one joke and one verse to each of your eight neighbors. On Easter morning, each neighbor would post the joke and the Bible verse with a symbol inside the Easter basket, along with either a plastic figure of the item listed or a creative alternative.
On Easter, families go around your neighborhood looking for the Easter baskets that have these cards. The scavenger hunt sheet shows them what to look for on these specific cards and check them off. This is a fun way for us to celebrate #EasterTogetherApart.
More ideas: Choose a time for the scavenger hunt to begin. (If everyone begins from their homes at the same time they can be spaced out.) Have the children dress up in their Sunday best and walk around looking for these cards. Encourage neighbors in their driveways to wave to the children and greet one another on Easter morning.
Alternate idea: You can plan this yourself with these cards. Ask several neighbors if you can use their driveways for this scavenger hunt. Clean up when finished.
Older children: Make this more challenging as they hop on bikes and ask parents to time them to as they find all eight items. Parents post the kid’s times on the neighborhood Facebook page or neighborhood app, etc.
Adapt this for your neighborhood. We would love to see your ideas and your photos. Please tag us at #EasterTogetherApart.
