Easter Egg Fitness Treasure Hunt

As promised, here is an active Easter activity you can plan for your kids!  This will get them moving, and have fun at the same time. Simple as this:

  1. Write clues on pieces of paper.
  2. Place clues inside plastic eggs.
  3. Place eggs in their specific location to be found by excited children.
  4. Children must do the exercise and then move onto the next location.

Here are my clues! Feel free to add your own, or make them better!

Egg #1

Do 10 pushups, can you do more? 

Look for the next clue, on the front door.


Egg #2

Jump in place for a minute, than a smidge.

If you aren’t too tired, look in the fridge.


Egg #3

Raise your legs high, touch your knee to your nose,

Do this ten times, and then check the garden hose.


Egg #4

Sit down and stretch, you’ve been busy as a bee.

Then get up and run, to the nearest tree!


Egg #5

Do a little dance, you’re almost done

The kitchen table is where we have so much fun.


Egg #6

Doing 5 jumping jacks will make you a star,

Then finish your hunt at the family car!


Then, maybe when you get to the car, you could go somewhere fun like the park!  Maybe you’ll have bubbles in the car they can take to the park!

If you have several kids, fill a bowl with many eggs, and they have to open them all! The child who finds the clue is the winner at that station.

LOVE this idea. My girls like to run so we have put running clothes in their basket, it fits right in with trying to avoid all the chocolate.
Great idea thanks.

Great ideas-posted on the DFM facebook page. We have an Easter Egg hunt every year to help support our children’s programs and use stickers, temporary tattoos, small bottle of bubbles and some chocolate in the eggs. Chocolate, because of the fat, doesn’t cause a rapid elevation of blood glucose unlike hard or gummi candies.
By the way, please check spelling on egg #5-I think you mean “You’re almost done!”

I have been doing this for years for my girls. I started out with easy clues, then made them harder as they got older. I also have done picture clues where the picture of the next egg gave them the clue as to where it was at. They like it better than running to get the most eggs. This way they each got a certain number of eggs and they were happier.

I’ve been doing this for years with my kids, only instead of formal exercises, I send them up to the second floor, then down to the basement, then up to the main floor, then into the backyard – well, you get the picture! I have been recording it as well so we all get the exercise together. My kids are now 14 and 12 and they still request the egg scavenger hunt! Great fun and great exercise. I think I’ll follow your lead this year and include some jumping jacks and bounces on the trampoline. Thanks for the ideas!!

Thanks for the super-fun idea! I did a scavenger hunt for Christmas with great success, and this will fit the bill perfectly! Since my “child” is 20 and a fitness nut, and I m in my 50’s and WAY out of shape, she will enjoy best that I plan to do the fitness exercises with her as we go from clue to clue! Great bonding and just another quiet way to show her I believe in her and honor what’s important to her.

This is so great! I usually leave the baskets on the counter and randomly hide eggs, but I had seen this post a month or so ago on Facebook and decided to try it out. I adapted the clues to work for our house and left a “note from the easter bunny” on the counter and the kids LOVED it. They took it super serious and even made me set a timer for the clue that said hop in place for one minute! So much fun. Thanks!!!
