Tips for Printing the Game Boards

- You can print the scavenger hunt game boards on regular computer paper, but I prefer to use heavier card stock paper because it holds up better to the excitement of an Easter Scavenger Hunt game.
- I recommend you consider laminating the game boards so that you can use them again and again. If you’re wondering whether you’d use a home laminating machine in your home, check out this post and see how I use it in my every day life.

- Choose to set a time frame for the scavenger hunt game or let the game go until someone finds all the items. Choose the option that works best for the ages of the children playing and for your Easter schedule.
- The flexibility of this scavenger hunt makes it easy to adapt for a variety of players and for a variety of situations.
- You can choose whether the winner wins bragging rights or a prize. My family goes for bragging rights or the first choice of dyed eggs for lunch or snack.
