The 5 most inventive Easter Egg hunt ideas for lockdown

Easter has come around again, and we’re still in lockdown. If you and your family, or you and your friends want to make this Easter Sunday entertaining, we have some inventive Easter Egg hunt ideas for you to try, without breaking lockdown!

1. Indoor Scavenger Hunt

This relies on you knowing whats in the house or flat very well. Make a checklist for each player of things they need to collect, and where those things are, hide eggs (mini, plastic, paper… we wouldn’t recommend normal eggs though… what if you forget about one!?). The first player to get all the eggs wins the Easter Egg, or gets first choice. Some of our checklist ideas include:

  • Collect the yellowest item
  • Find the bottle opener
  • Make a sandwich
  • Find the toothpaste

For extra fun, give everyone the same checklist and watch them race to the eggs!

2. Riddles

This one is for the intellectuals among us. Throughout your home (and garden if you have one), place some riddles. These can be in little plastic eggs, sellotape them to walls, however you fancy. Each participant gets given a riddle, which will direct them to the next one, and so on. The first one to reach the end of their riddle trail wins, and will find their egg.

Our favourite riddles are:

  • What has two hands and a face, but no arms and legs?
  • Cows swallow this blade, but it’s not sharp or metal.
  • Can you find something which has keys that open no locks, with space but no room and allows you to enter but not go in?

3. Would I rather?

Now, do this hunt with precaution. Prepare to possibly be offended! Think up a list of questions related to your home which all start with ‘Would I Rather…’. Then, ask your friends or family the questions. The two answers must correspond with places in your home, and whoever goes to the right one, gets the egg. If they both do, they both get the egg. The person with the most eggs wins. Some questions you could ask:

  • Would I rather clean the bathroom or wash up? (bathroom versus kitchen sink)
  • Would I rather wear socks or slippers? (sock drawer versus slipper location)
  • Would I rather shower or watch television? (shower versus TV)

4. Sweet map

This idea relies on some creative talent, but not too much. Create a very minimal drawing of your flat, the more simplistic the better. On it, for each person, mark a few Xs. Each X corresponds to a place where you’ll hide their favourite sweeties or chocolate. Each person must rush around to find all of their favourites (make sure each of them knows which sweets are for which player!), and the first to collect all of their goodies gets first dibs on an egg.

5. Boozy egg hunt

With this hunt, you need to fill some glasses or plastic cups with drinks (works best with dark drinks, like beer or something and coke!), and in the bottom of them, tape the hint to the next location. Players must down the drink to get to the next location, and, as per usual, first to the end wins!
