The annual Easter egg hunt is one of the highlights of childhood. To ramp up the fun and make the search for hidden treats last a little longer and be a bit more challenging, we have some suggestions for chocolate hunt clues to print out.
You could mount the clues on egg-shaped cards, or wrap them round each egg to lead children on the chase to the next discovery.
Easy clues for little ones
Toddlers and children who aren’t confident readers will love picture cards. You could print out pictures, leave photos (perhaps with Mummy or Daddy pointing at the hiding place) or do your own drawing.
Alternatively you can read simple clues like these out loud before they rush off to find their treats:
- Where you brush your teeth
- Where you sleep
- Next to (favourite toy)....
- Where we wash our clothes
- Inside Daddy’s shoes.
