This clue is tricky, that’s for certain,
Is there something behind the curtain?
I have four legs
But cannot walk.
You sit at me
To use your fork.
I’m the perfect place to snuggle down for the night...
Have a look where you go to sleep tight.
In this drawer is where I sit
Look where your underpants and socks sit.
Where do you sit to watch TV?
Maybe there is where you’ll find me.
Where eggs are hidden, we have a lot
Have a look in the plant _ _ _.
I'm short and green
I'm outside all day
Could the eggs be hiding
Where you like to play?
Your Easter eggs do love to hide
But could you find them on the _ _ _ _ _?
With wheels and seats, we can travel far
Perhaps your eggs are waiting near the _ _ _.
I'm in the garden
and I'm like a small house
But just for the lawnmower
Maybe even a mouse.
Now you have some ready-made Easter riddles, here are a few pointers on how you can make this Easter’s celebrations the best yet.
Shops will start to stock Easter eggs around early February time, so keep an eye out for deals. You’ll do yourself a favour by buying early - that way it won’t be a mad (and expensive) rush come Easter weekend.
Designate a specific area for your hunt. Your home is good enough! Make use of its nooks and crannies - just remember where you’ve hidden them.
Make it known that somewhere there is a ‘special egg’. Maybe it’s much bigger than the others, or there are extra eggs inside it. Whatever it is, make sure that your kids are excited about this bonus prize. Exciting!
Think about the ages of the kids involved and hide according to their age. You can’t expect a group of four-year-olds to reach up high while hiding them in plain sight will be far too easy for the older ones.
To keep it fair, colour code the eggs and tell the kids of varying ages to hunt for the colours that match their abilities. You’ll avoid lots of potential tears!
