Free Printable Christ-Centered Easter Basket Scavenger Hunt

Free printable Christ-Centered Easter basket scavenger hunt for Easter morning - A treasure hunt is a great way to find your Easter basket. This hunt for kids, tweens, or teens uses the main points of the Easter story of Jesus as clues. Awesome Christian fun in riddles. Great for families at home. Religious and Bible-based. Easy clues using both indoor and outdoor spots.

I didn't know what to call this Easter basket scavenger hunt. The clues follow the basic Easter story with Jesus washing the disciples' feet, getting arrested in the garden, being beaten and mocked, and so on. So it is Christ-centered. I debated about calling it religious or Christian but ended up with Christ-centered.

I created this other Easter basket scavenger hunt in 2016 and changed the clues around for my kids in 2017, but I wanted something fresh this year. Even though they're now 7 and 10, they still talk about it and look forward to their Easter morning hunt, so dropping it is definitely not an option.

As with the other clues, you will need to print out these clues the night before Easter, cut them, and put them in the appropriate places after your kids are in bed. For the very last clue, you will also have to write in the location of the Easter baskets so they know where to find them at the end.

How to Create a Christ-Centered Easter Basket Scavenger Hunt

  1. Download and print out the clues I put together.
  2. Cut the clues apart.
  3. Get a bunch of plastic Easter eggs.
  4. Put the first clue in a plastic Easter egg. Leave the clue-filled egg somewhere your kids will find it. I’m thinking we’ll put ours on the couch.
  5. Clue 2 – Under a chair in the kitchen.
  6. Clue 3 – Under a light – An Easter egg wouldn't fit under a lamp, but maybe you could tape it to the lamp shade or just set it next to a lamp.
  7. Clue 4 – In a shoe
  8. Clue 5 – In the freezer
  9. Clue 6 – At the top of the slide
  10. Clue 7 – Outside the front door
  11. Clue 8 – “In the room with the broom” so where ever you keep the broom. Ours is in the kitchen.
  12. Clue 9 – A place where you put your toys away
  13. Clue 10 – Under a kid's bed
  14. Clue 11 – In the clothes dryer
  15. Easter basket clue – In the shower
  16. Easter basket – Where ever you want. I'm putting ours in the basement this year, but I've also put them in the car and in the shower before.

Because this requires only about 15 minutes of prep, you could print these out and have them ready to go even the night before Easter.

You sort of have to wait until the last minute anyway. You couldn’t hardly put the eggs and clues out before the night before!

I’d love to hear if you used these clues and how your kids liked them!

    • You will have to add the file to your cart with the Add to Cart button above and then go through the free checkout process. Then there will be a download link and you will also get an email with the link.

    • Hi Sarah,
      You are welcome to share one image from the post and up to 50 words, but please do not republish my blog post or share my PDF from your own site. Please direct readers to come back here to download the printable.

  2. Thank you Tara. I will simply link this specific blog post in a blog post of mine. When the link is clicked, they will be redirected here. 🙂 I love this idea so much!

  3. Hi! I’m having the same issue as Anna. I tried to refresh the page and add to the cart again but it just keeps on buffering and nothing happens.

  4. Hi Tara! I love this idea, I’ve been looking for a good way to add Christ to our Easter baskets and this will be so fun for the kids. Could you email the files to me please? I can’t figure out how to print them off.
    Thank you!
    Ashley

  5. Hi,
    I’ve tried a few times to have the file emailed to me but no such luck. Can you please send it to me.
    Thank you!

  6. I checked there and it isn’t there either. I was able to download the teen one but was really hoping to get this one as well for my younger one.
    Thank you for trying.

    • Oh, I just had a brainstorm. If you don’t have an email from me, try going into the store and downloading the file from there. You can add it to your cart, and then when the confirmation screen opens, there will be a link in red where you can download right there from that page.
