Whether you’re hiding treats, dolls, or both, a little mystery always adds excitement to the experience! Before hiding the treasures, we suggest creating clues that will lead children to each mini-gift or an ultimate prize. If the participating child is very young, then you could go with straightforward clues such as “Look in the red bin!” or “Go out the front door.” If they’re a bit older, you can tease their brains a lil’ by writing fun riddles for them to solve.
Once you have the hiding spots and clues ready to go, it’s time to bring the game to life – and there are a few ways to go about it! To fully dive into the theme, you can cut out heart-shaped cards and use them for clues. You can hide existing dolls holding colorful ‘egg shells’ with the clues inside. Or to make things easy-peasy for children, you can place the gifts all around the house and attach balloons to them so that the clues stay visible. Then put the treasures in their respective spots on the big day and let children have tons of Easter fun!
