Who doesn’t love a scavenger hunt, especially one that rhymes? Add some fun to Easter morning with this short and easy scavenger hunt to find baskets!
I am making very modest, dollar store baskets for my kids and I wanted to spice it up with a short scavenger hunt to find them. There are only so many more years when they will enjoy this type of thing and not just humor me. The excitement of small children is such a joy.
My clues are below and you can download and print the file, if you want to use it in your home…just click here – Easter Basket Scavenger Hunt
I added instructions on where to put all the clues. Hopefully the clues can be used in most homes. Below is an outline of the clues and instructions to preview, but if you click on the file I added some Easter bunny clipart.

Happy Basket Hunting!
The Easter Bunny came to say, “Have a Happy Easter Day!”
We celebrate the day that Jesus is risen,
With a basket of treats the Bunny has given,
Use the clues to see if you can find
The basket he left with treats of all kind
Start by going out of your room
To a place where we often use a broom
It’s where we have good things to eat
The next clue will be right in a seat.
You’ve found clue one!
So far a good job is done!
The next clue will be,
In a comfy spot where you watch TV
You may have to check in every nook
To find the clue for which you look
Here you are at clue number three,
Now the clues may not be easy!
The next clue is in something you put on your feet,
Better check in them all to find the next clue and get your treat!
Good job finding clue number four,
Three more to go that won’t be a bore!
Your next clue will take you to a place,
Where you wash your dirty face,
And you brush your pearly whites
Try to find it and you might!
You’re doing great!
Easter treats are your fate!
The next clue is where we wash your clothes
You’ll find it there, look just above your nose.
You made it to the very last clue,
The final thing that you must do!
The Easter basket is hidden inside
A small space in your room where clothes reside
Find it there and you will enjoy
lots of treats and goodies galore!
