Spring is almost here, & it’s the perfect time of year to head out on a Scavenger Hunt. Our special Easter version is perfect to take with you on a family walk & allows all ages to easily explore the events of Holy Week. From puddle splashing to building mini shelters, there’s something for everyone.
Holy Week is a real rollercoaster of emotions & sometimes a little tricky to explore with younger children, but this multi-sensory Scavenger Hunt allows them to discover the Easter Story in a simple, age-appropriate way, with plenty of opportunity for play & wonder.
You’ll find our free printable Easter Scavenger Hunt here.
4 Different Ways to Use the Easter Scavenger Hunt
:: Tick off all the items that you find on your sheet.
:: Take a storybook that tells the Easter Story & stop off en route to read it while you enjoy a hot cross bun or snack. A perfect place to stop for a snack would be just after you’ve explored the puddle splashing. You could talk about Jesus not only washing his disciples’ feet but sharing a special meal with them too.
:: Whilst on your walk look up the Bible references on your phone & share them together.
:: Take photos of the items you find & the things you create. When you get home you could use them to make a Holy Week collage.
Whether you explore the Scavenger Hunt around your neighbourhood or on a woodland walk, I hope you & your family enjoy discovering something new about the Easter Story.
