Behind Christmas, which is also my birthday, Easter Sunday is my second favorite holiday. I always loved having eggs hunts and finding baskets fully of brightly colored toys and candies! I have put together some easy and affordable Easter basket ideas that your kids or grand-kids will love!
Did you always have to hunt for your Easter basket? Oh we did! and IT. WAS. FUN!!! The Easter Bunny always put together these funny clues that would take us all over the house on this big treasure hunt for out baskets. Well I say Easter Bunny, but really my parents. Seriously it was the most fun way to look for them. I like it better than just going on a hunt for the basket, I mean we already do that with eggs. Anyway, we have done this same things with the girls the last couple of years. Of course Amelia is really just now big enough to sort of participate, but we always included her because Aria would have asked.
Just like when we were little I had them go from room to room to garage and back inside and finally they get to their basket full of goodies. I also love this ideas because it’s great to start reading. Have your child look at the clue card as you are reading it to them. So not only fun, but includes some learning too! Below are a couple of clue ideas we have used to give you some ideas on how we make this work!
Easter Basket Hunt Clues
- Aria – The Easter bunny has come and the first place to look is to go where you love to cook and read a book.
- Aria – you found your next clue on the book that is blue. Now go look where you keep your shoes
- Aria – you are doing a great job and are right on pace, to find your basket go look where you keep your suitcase
So that just gives you a little idea of how you can create your own clues for basket hunt. I LOVED this as a kid, my brother and sister did too, and the last year Aria had a ball doing it. We have generally kept them to 3 or 4 clues because even though they love it, the attention span is pretty short. As they get older we’ll add a couple of clues and of course make them harder, requiring them to really think about the riddle.
What is your favorite Easter Tradition? I’d love to hear about it in the comments sections below!!
