Tips On Planning For An Easter Themed Scavenger Hunt.
Scavenger hunts are a great way to bring people together and learn new things. With the Easter festivities around the corner, there are various ideas on activities for children to take part in to do and a scavenger hunt is top of this list. Easter eggs and bunnies are often the main thing Easter scavenger hunts are about although there are many other things the hunt can be about. Thinking out of the box when coming up with ideas for the Easter scavenger hunt will make children look forward to it.
You can change the venue for your Easter scavenger hunt. More children will be eager to participate in the hut if you change the venue of the hunt from indoors to outdoors and vice versa. You can make the hunt feel different by changing the time it usually happens. Give the children flashlights to look for the items with or substitue the eggs with glow sticks in case you have the hunt at night.
The children can learn more if you leave them clues that are riddled whose answers are the items they are looking for. The eggs can be substituted with items that will teach them a bit more about Easter. Have a short discussion with the children after the hunt is over to see what the learned from the hunt. Clues like bible verses is a great way to jog the children’s memories.
Instead of having the children look for items, have them look for more specific items. Roles can be reversed so that it’s the parents that go for the hunt while children are in charge of hiding the items. Children can learn teamwork if you use puzzle pieces instead of Easter eggs and have them working together to solve the puzzle. Having a reward for all participants makes everyone look forward to playing. Use simpler hints when dealing with the younger children so they do not have a hard time trying to understand what you mean and if possible use pictures for them to understand. Many children love to play dress up and having them all dressed up in Easter-themed clothes for the scavenger hunt is a fun activity to add to the entire scavenger hunt idea.
There are various things you need to consider before organizing a scavenger hunt. How the hint is organized will be greatly influenced by the age of the children. The younger ones might view what the old ones like as boring or vice versa. As you organize the scavenger hunt, ensure it is full of fun activities. Organize for activities that everyone can participate in and ensure that everyone can participate in the activities organized. When organizing the hunt have a time set so it does not take to long or it is not so fast.
