This year, try a fun Easter Egg Hunt Clues game with your kids or grandkids and print out the free printable clues below! It’s the perfect way to play and celebrate Easter.
Find hidden Easter Eggs, read clues and uncover fun facts about the holiday.
Setting up an Easter Egg Hunt
A garden Easter egg hunt is so much fun for kids of all ages. Here’s how ours went, and you can download the printable PDF Easter egg hunt clues at the end of this post.
Easter egg hunts are so much fun for kids of all ages!
The Waitrose woodland friends eggs are so pretty with brightly coloured foil, I knew they would look great glittering in the grass for the children to find. This package comes with press out sign posts, and you can use the cardboard pack as an Easter basket. We hid a few of the other sweets around the place too for some variety.
We used an Easter egg hunt map with clues, and 10 Spring themed questions and answers. The full pack is available to download as a printable pdf at the end of the post if you would like to use it with your kids.
The boys tried their best to study the map and then raced off to see what clues and Easter eggs they could find. Mr T especially is really interested in maps at the moment, and has been drawing me some amazing maps! I remember enjoying Easter egg hunts with clues as a child too, it just makes it all the more fun!
It took a while for them to find all the eggs!
The first few were found easily but some proved a little trickier! They easily found the eggs on the climbing frame, but not the ones hiding in the long grass or near the sand pit. It was cute to see them sliding down the slide victorious with the Easter eggs they found!
Lots of questions were found along the way too, and they worked together to answer them. The questions are a good mix of easy and not too easy.
One of the easier clues: “What do you do to a plant to help it grow“?
Finally, once the kids have solved the clues and found all of the Easter eggs it is time to eat the chocolate!
The boys all loved the Waitrose eggs. They are perfect for an Easter egg hunt as they are not too big so it’s okay for them to eat a couple. They are just the right size for little hands.
Don’t forget to have baby wipes ready at the end for all the little chocolatey hands and faces! 🙂

How to use these Easter egg hunt clues for an Easter Game
There are several ways this game can be played – in the garden, park, local farm or even in the house if it rains, and very little planning is needed:
- Choose a trail with stopping points and, at the first point, ask the children the first question and hide the answer and an Easter treat nearby.
- Move on to the next point and question once they have found the answer.
- Hide both the question and answer, ask the children to find them, and then ask them to match the correct question with the answer. Each correct match gets an Easter treat.
Ideas for Easter treats to hide
- Small foil wrapped Easter eggs
- Small packets of Easter sweets
- Small traditional Easter toys such as yellow chicks
- Other Easter related things they could do later in the day such as crafts, colouring pens and book.
This game is recommended for children aged 3+

- It’s time to find the eggs, left by the Easter bunny. Grab your basket, hurry hurry hurry! To begin your search here is your first clue, go to the kitchen and check your shoe! (Hide the next clue in a shoe in the kitchen)
- The next clue is hiding where you sleep at night, the place where you come and turn off the light. Getting a move on, off you go. Please don’t run, take it slow (Hide by the bedside lamp)
- You’re doing a great job, but we’re not done yet. This clue is hidden well, but please don’t fret. Check the place you store your favourite book. This one is tricky so take a good look. (Hide in the bookshelf)
- Now it’s time to go back down the stairs, off to the dinner table, check the chairs. This clue doesn’t want to be found, so tiptoe don’t make a sound. (Hide in the dining chair cushions, or on the chair seat)
- Let the bunny footprints be your guide, as we take you to where the eggs might hide. This one is hiding where the plants grow. Have a good dig, this one is not on show (hide in the flower bed)
- This is the place birds like to perch, up in the sky, have a search. Look up high and you will see, something hanging from that tree (hide in the tree)
- One to go we are nearly there! Time to go back inside, the end is near. Surrounded by food, this place is never hot. Find the final clue in this chilly spot. (Hide in the fridge)
- Congratulations, you’ve found your last clue! Easter goodies are now waiting for you. Go to the sofa and look all around, see all the eggs that couldn’t be found!
