Easter Egg Treasure Hunt

I (on behalf of the Easter Bunny, of course!) put together a treasure hunt for the boys' baskets on Easter morning and it was a huge hit. Logan even proclaimed it to be the "best Easter ever!"

I made up several clues and hid them in plastic eggs throughout the house.

When they woke up, there was a note taped to the banister that they would see as they came to our room:

Good Morning, AIDAN and LOGAN!

Are you ready for an Easter Egg Treasure Hunt? Well get to hoppin'!

Look for your first clue in the place where you scrub-a-dub-dub and get all clean. Don't go alone, work as a team ☺

 Here are the clues I came up with:

 Clue #1: Brrr, it's cold in here, but not freezing! Look for your second clue where we store food. {hidden in the fridge}

Clue #2: Right foot, left foot. March, March! Look for your third clue where you get ready before going outside. {hidden in a shoe in the front closet}

Clue #3: Want to be in a Rock Band? Or would you rather play tennis, golf, basketball or bowling instead? Find your fourth clue there. {hidden on top of the Wii}

Clue #4: Look where Mommy puts your clothes when they are clean but still wet. You'll find your fifth clue there, I bet! {hidden in the dryer}

Clue #5: If guests like Grandma and Grandpa come to stay, this is where they'd put their clothes away. {the baskets were hidden in the guest bedroom closet}

They easily found most clues, but they were inexplicably stumped by the final clue. I guess it's because we keep all of their clothes in drawers and we rarely have overnight guests (Grandma and Grandpa don't ever spend the night so I think that confused them). After looking in every single one of their drawers and some of ours, they finally thought to open the guest bedroom closet. Adam and I were cracking up listening to them try to figure everything out. It was awesome how excited they were!

This was their treasure:

The baskets were pretty simple. The boys got the mini Nerf blaster they ask for every.single.time we're in the checkout line at Target, some cotton candy, marshmallow sticks and juice from the Dollar Store, and some jelly beans and tattoos in plastic eggs.

Aidan is showing off the Nerf blaster
and Logan is practicing his silly face.

 Lorelai's basket had a pink UNC onesie, some jammies, sippy cups and Gerber puffs in plastic eggs. Conveniently, all things she needed anyway! How smart of the Easter bunny ;)

Logan was so excited to feed Lorelai her puffs.

I've got a ton more Easter photos to share as soon as up finish uploading and editing. Stay tuned...

  1. Your Easter Bunny for Lorelei sounds just as smart as my Santa was for Logan at Christmas! ;) Such a cute idea with their treasure hunt, Becky! Stealing it for sure when my little guy is old enough!


I love comments! Thanks for taking the time to leave one.
