How it works

  1. Download the clues you want by clicking the links below
  2. Print them on an A4 sheet of paper and cut them out
  3. Plan the order of your hunt – eg, under bed, in a drawer, in a bookcase, etc
  4. Hold on to the 1st clue
  5. Plant the 2nd clue in the hiding place shown on the first clue – eg, if your 1st clue is ‘bed’, hide the next clue (eg ‘drawers’) in the bed hiding place. Hide the 1st egg here too if you want to include eggs along the way.
  6. Plant the 3rd clue in the hiding place shown on the 2nd clue – eg  if your 2nd clue is ‘drawers’, hide the next clue (eg ‘bookcase’) in the drawers hiding place, and so on until you’ve hidden all the clues (and eggs)
  7. Give your child the 1st clue and let them start following the trail to their eggs

Of course, they don’t have to be chocolate eggs, either. You can choose whatever you’d like ?

Have fun! ?
