7. Create An Easter Treasure Hunt

Replace the "traditional" with a "treasure". Give each child a map. Use pictures for those younger ones unable to read as yet (e.g. cut out a picture of a chair or draw a coffee table to show them where the eggs are). Then, for an added bit of fun hide another map at one of the clues. For those over 8 years of age the map can contain riddles and word clues (e.g. a specific novel on the bookshelf).
