Are you looking to plan an exciting Easter egg treasure hunt your kids will love? Look no further, with these free printable Easter treasure hunt clues for kids.

My kids’ favorite Easter activity is of course the Easter egg hunt. It doesn’t matter what is inside the eggs, they just love searching for them. They enjoy it so much so, that even after they’ve found all their eggs, my kids will play “Easter Bunny.” They’ll pretend to be the Easter bunny and go back and forth hiding one another’s empty eggs just for them to find again. It’s a game they can seriously play for hours. 

Because they love it so much, this year I’ve decided to add to the egg hunt fun. I’ve created and am sharing with you an Easter egg treasure hunt complete with 16 fun clues.

All 16 clues are fairly simple. They each lead to an indoor item most households have such as a toaster, keys, refrigerator and more!

After your kids complete this Easter egg treasure hunt, don’t be surprised if they beg you to do more!

This post is all about creating an Easter egg treasure hunt your kids will love.

What I love about this Easter egg treasure hunt is that it makes my kids have to think and solve the riddle in order to find their prize.

I made these clues fairly easy and best suited for the younger ages because my three kids are 6 and under. Seeing the teamwork and brainstorming they do while solving these riddles is really great. 

Supplies Needed for the Easter Treasure Hunt

  • Printer
  • 8.5 x 11 Printer Paper
  • Scissors
  • Plastic Easter Eggs
  • Prize


The first thing you’ll need to do is download and print off the free printable Easter egg treasure hunt clues below. Afterwards, cut out each individual clue. Then, gather 15 plastic Easter eggs for your clues.

After that, set aside the first clue that reads “Let’s go on a treasure hunt! Can you find all the clues? I’ve hidden your first one in one of your shoes.”

This is the clue you will give to your kids in order to start the treasure hunt. The first clue will not be going in an egg.

The first and last clue are the only two that have to go in a specific order. Otherwise, the rest of the clues you can decide the order you want to place them.

Next, lay out all of the clues and organize them into the order you want them to go. You can always number the back of the clues so your kids know they’ve found the right one.

Once you’ve organized and numbered the clues, you are then going to put your second clue in a plastic egg and hide it in your child’s shoe (location from the first). Before you hide it, make sure to read the second clue so you know where the next clue should be hidden. 

Basically, your second clue will go in the location from the first clue and the third clue will go in the location from the second clue. You keep doing this pattern until you get to the last clue.

The last card reads “you’ve followed the clues and now it’s time for your prize. Go look in your closet for your Easter surprise!”. You would then place the prize or treat in their closet.

I specifically chose the closet for the last clue so that if you have more than one child they can do the hunt together but then each child can get their own prize.

If you do the hunt in the order I have them listed below, then it may be helpful to just pull this up while you hide the eggs. This way you don’t have to try and remember where the next one goes because I have it listed along with the location.
