I like upcycling, repurposing and crafting with my kids

Easter Egg Hunt (without chocolate!)

Upcycled greetings cards into game

Fun Easter Egg hunt game using upcycled birthday cards!

This is a fun game you can play with the kids over Easter – an Easter Egg hunt without the chocolates!

I took some of the children’s birthday cards and used the back of one to draw an oval to use as the template.

I then chose some brightly coloured cards and traced the egg shape onto them (checking there was no text or other markings on the back).

I then created two larger egg shapes for them to use as answer cards as they went round hunting for the little eggs.

Numbered lines on the answer card “eggs” for the mystery word

On the back of the little eggs they found a number and a letter, which they had to write on the corresponding numbered line on their answer card eggs.

Recycled cards as Easter egg game

Eggs have numbers and letters for the children to find and decode the Mystery Word…!

I stuck the little eggs around the house (it was a bit chilly outside for this game) and they had fun hunting for them and filling in their cards.

Best of all, the eggs make a sweet Easter decoration after the game is finished. We will definitely be doing this again 🙂
