With Easter coming up in a couple of weeks, what better way to go on the hunt for chocolate than through a fun-filled scavenger hunt? Instead of aimlessly looking for chocolate, you can create a scavenger hunt that will lead your kids/friends/family/neighbours/co-workers from one clue or goodie to the next. This can all be done through a program like TextClues, which allows you to send clues through your phone!
You just need to decide:
1) Whether you want to leave mini treats throughout the hunt or if the hunt will just end in one big surprise
2) The various clues during the hunt to make the scavenger hunter know where to go from place to place
Let’s get started with an example!
Clue: Welcome to the annual Easter hunt! Can’t wait for you to see what we have in store for you :) Head on over to the jar where the cookies are stored. What picture is on the front?
Answer: A sun
Clue: That’s right. And what is behind the cookie jar?
Clue: Yes, some kisses for you to get started. Head to the area in the backyard where you may find some spring flowers. Reply with “Done” when you’re there and have found your treat.
Clue: Head on over to the area in the kitchen where you would find a bunnie’s favorite treat. Reply with “Done” when you are there and have found your treat.
Clue: Somewhere in the house is a photo that was taken last Spring 2012. Remember where it is? Go find it and look for the treat. Reply with “Done” when you’re there and have found your treat.
Winning message: Go find Aunt Susie now for the big surprise!
