Below are some Easter Egg Hunt Clues found on the internet or are made up by me from previous hunts I have organised. I know just how hard it can be to come up with fun clues for the family Easter Egg Hunts or even just finding them on the internet. Some of the ones below are easy, some are hard, have a look and fit them into your own hunt according to the ages and abilities of the players.
If you want to try and come up with your own the most easiest way to do so is to make 2 to 4 sentences making sure the last word in each sentence rhymes. Also by working out the locations of where you will hide the eggs and write down the list on a separate piece of paper so that you can remember where you put the eggs on the day.
Last year I made my hunt more personal by including names of my family and kept it significant to what has been happening in the family for example, I had just had my baby so included this in one of the clues.
Last tip is to imagine you are the Easter Bunny, no matter how old everyone is nothing beats being able to feel like you've gone back to your childhood

To get it here on time, For this year’s rhyme!
You best make a start, on my work of art,
As clue number one, is done
And hiding under your bums
(place clue number one under the sofa cushions)
Clue number one,
Is lots of fun,
It shows a pic,
But people tend to flick,
Which is very annoying,
When it is something that you are enjoying. (TV)
Time for number three,
Will you be as clever as me,
You may be left waiting,
At the giant type of gating. (door)
You made it to four,
No the next one is not at the door,
That had been done already,
The next one can be found with a teddy. (Teddy on a bed)
Now its time for number eight,
I hope you don’t take the bait,
And go to the wrong place,
In case you forgot it is a race,
You’ll find the next one in a sack,
The one in which my child puts on their back. (school backpack)
Clue number ten,
Who said “hallelujah and amen!”
This one is the hardest yet,
You will be sure to work up a sweat,

And to a witch and a lion that roars. (Wardrobe)
