Toddler treasure hunt
These clues are ideal for simple Easter egg hunts with your toddlers. Print the sheet and cut out each colour – you’ll keep hold of all of these. Hide a treat (or the next clue) near/in/on something that matches each colour. Bring out one colour clue at a time, saying, “Our treat will be hiding with something red. What can we see that’s red in this room? Is it behind that red cushion? Is it in our red fruit bowl?” Repeat with each colour.
Preschooler treasure hunt
Get your preschoolers thinking about the objects they see around the home. Print off and cut out these six clues. Hang on to the first clue – this is the one you’ll hand your child to get the hunt started. You need to hide the second clue in the trail underneath/inside/near the object shown in clue 1. Clue 3 goes underneath/inside/near the object shown in clue 2, and so on. Choose a simple Easter treat to hide under the last object.
