There are lots of ideas for organizing an Easter treasure hunt.
You can prepare a map of your garden or house. Make a cross in 10 different places on your map that are easily recognizable. One of these crosses represents the location of the treasure. Then hide a piece of paper at these locations with a riddle on it, numbered 1 to 9.
At the beginning, direct the children to the first hidden riddle. They will have to find it and solve it. If it is solved, then they will put a “1” next to the corresponding cross. Solving the puzzle will lead the children to a new hiding place. They will then solve the riddle and that will lead them to the next hiding place and so on. They will always place a number next to the cross for each puzzle they solve. The 9th riddle will give the location of the treasure to the children which represents the 10th cross.
