Scavenger Hunt – Day 6 of Resurrection Crafts

Scavenger Hunt Eggs

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. John3-16 & egg scavenger huntWe have a dog, and the 2nd clue mentions the dogs bed.  You may need to change that if you don’t have one.

The list of things I used was:items needed - Page 001

  • 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 eggsitems needed - Page 002

 

  • 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:

found Day 6 egg in the basket and read the noteMy oldest found the Day 6 egg in the big basket and read the first clue.

The second egg  at the dog bedThe second egg was at the dog bed in plain view and he read the next clue.

the third clue with the pots & pansThe third clue was hidden with the pots and pans, and that one they had to find in a pot.

what my son was doing the entire timeThis is what my youngest son was doing the entire time.  This is in front of the TV, where they found the next clue.  He was just happy to get chocolate!

Found the prize!The last clue to the kids to the bathroom near their shampoo.

opening up the prizeThis 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.



Making Stick Crosses – Day 5 of Resurrection Crafts

Posted on

Resurrection Garden with CrossesThis is the fifth day of my 12 Days of Resurrection Crafts series.

Day five from the Resurrection Eggs Easter craft comes from Matthew 27:2, and is represented by rope.

For this craft, we tied the stick crosses together for our Empty Tomb Garden.

We found the sticks outside. found our sticks outsideWe used beading twine (similar to this: )to tie the sticks into crosses. beading twine and sticks

I first broke the sticks into smaller pieces to make the cross. broken sticks

My oldest child understood how to hold the sticks together so that we could tie them, but the 4-year old and 3-year old did not know how to do this.  Thankfully, I was able to tie them together myself.

finished crossI had my kiddos place the crosses where they wanted to in our little garden.  The whole project took less than fifteen minutes.

As always, I hope you’re having fun!
