This Easter I wanted something different, something that we had never done before. We’d done Easter crafts, Easter cooking, Easter egg hunt… but I was really glad to accidentally come across some Easter scavenger hunt on the net. I thought I could tailor it to the girls. So I did.
As they are still young and found Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection too frightening (we read some simple books about it), I stayed with the bunny theme this year.
Some presents (very few sweets and no chocolate treats at all) were hidden by the Easter bunny around the flat and the rabbit also made sure that the girls have some challenge. He left rhyming notes everywhere to give directions to the girls where they could find the next gift location.
Early in the morning we heard some bunny sounds (thanks Daddy and youtube). The kids jumped out of bed and started searching for the goodies.
E. read out the little poems and helped her little sister to find the places of presents.
They both enjoyed it a lot and were excited about the findings and the whole game. It was more fun that I’d thought.
You can download our Easter Scavenger Hunt Rhymes here. (It’s editable so you can alter it as you wish)
Thanks, Easter Bunny!
