This is the sixth day of my 12 Days of Resurrection Crafts series.
Day six from the Resurrection Eggs Easter craft comes from Matthew 26:34, and is represented by a feather.
I created my own printable, based off of this blog post from the Dating Divas, for an Easter egg hunt for the hubby. We have a dog, and the 2nd clue mentions the dogs bed. You may need to change that if you don’t have one.
- 6-large plastic eggs
- one bag of bunny shaped chocolates
- one bag of coin shaped chocolates
- one bag of chocolate Easter eggs (gold)
- one box of Cadbury eggs
- one box of marshmallow Peeps
- bunny and chick shaped plastic eggs
- A big prize, namely a bubble gum dispensing chicken
I did this scavenger hunt based off of trying to match the clue with the candy given. The last prize was a chicken that “pooped out” gumballs – a big hit with my three kids – and subsequently, it’s a gift that includes a bird with feathers. (A stretch, I know, but that’s what I went with today!)
My 8-year old is the only one who can read at this point, and I could see that made the 4-year old sad. The three-year old followed the older two everywhere, but the hunt wasn’t the fun part for him – he stopped and opened up a piece of candy every moment he could get.
The scavenger hunt looked something like this:
This hunt took me at least 30-minutes to prep, with the printing, not including going to Walgreens and buying the candy, and then placing all the candy with the respective eggs. The hiding was only 5-minutes of my day, and I had to send my kids outside to do it.
It was fun for them, and it made me realize that they didn’t do scavenger hunts very often, so it was a big deal that they even had to follow directions and look for things. Hmmm….
It looks like I will be doing stuff like this in the future.
