What kid doesn’t love brightly dyed eggs, pastel colored jelly beans, and hippity hopping bunnies!? Easter is such a fun time to encourage friendship and plan EGGciting treats and activities for our kids. As a mom I LOVE hiding plastic eggs in the back yard and rereading our favorite Easter stories. Traditions are everything in my house. That’s why I am so excited to share these adorable and engaging holiday scavenger hunt lists for your little bunnies!
Learning About Observational Skills:

GOING ON A SCAVENGER HUNT CAN BOOST CHILDREN’S OBSERVATIONAL SKILLS AND HELP RECOGNIZE HOW TO USE THEIR SENSES.
When your child is looking for specific items on the list they will have to classify objects by colors, sizes, shapes and even textures.
As your child finds each item, have them cross off the picture and then draw the object on the second page. Encourage them to use descriptive words including positions and locations.
This activity can be completed indoors if rainy or outside in the beautiful spring weather.
The Easter scavenger hunt items that are included in this printable are: carrot, bunny, flowers, jelly beans, chick, hidden eggs, eggs, chocolate bunny, Easter bunny, and cracked egg.
In addition to learning about observational skills for kindergarten here are some more ideas for what you can teach using the Easter Scavenger Hunt:
- What object was the easiest to find?
- What object was the hardest to find?
- What other objects did you find that are not on the sheet?
- What do you think was inside of the cracked egg?

Why Is It Important For Kids To Participate In Scavenger Hunts?
Besides the fact that kids love running wild and free, there are so many other reasons you should ask your children to find specific objects in a hunt.

This activity is so simple to make and to ‘stage’ if necessary. If some of the objects are not found in your hunting space, feel free to add these items for your kiddos to find.
Print out a copy of the printable for each child.
A clipboard or something hard to set the paper on could help with tears or tiny holes in their papers.
Provide each child with a crayon, pen or pencil (and please remind them not to run with a sharp writing tool!).
Let them run free and explore their surroundings, with proper supervision of course.

Create a Clue
If you feel like your child may have a difficult time finding the objects, create fun clues for them to help them feel successful.
Take a Picture
Instead of, or along with, your child drawing a picture of the object, take their picture beside or close to what they have found.
