Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt for Teenagers

*This post contains affiliate link


My youngest, who is twelve, requested to have an Easter Egg hunt this year. We didn’t do one last year. This year, he was too old for the egg hunt at church. Looks like he doesn’t think he’s too old for one. And I’m fine with having another egg hunt for my youngest, since this very well may be the last year he requests one.


Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt for Teens


Easter Egg Scavenger Hunts for Teenagers


I thought it might be fun, and more challenging to have a scavenger hunt instead of a regular Easter egg hunt. Here are a few links I found, then I’ll tell you what I’m going to do.


Christian Scavenger Hunt – Scroll down to find Easter, includes printable worksheet and answer key
Scavenger Hunt Clues
Easter Egg Hunt Clues – includes a printable to write your clues on


Since I want to do an egg hunt outside, I decided to combine it with a scavenger hunt. I’m using the worksheet for the Christian Scavenger Hunt. The kids have to look up the missing word in ten Bible verses. The missing word is the item they find for the scavenger hunt.


I’m going to give the worksheets to my 12, 14, 17 and 18 year olds and have them fill it. I’m going to hide four candy filled eggs at a spot outside that corresponds to the missing word. Example: water. I will put the eggs near the outside faucet. For rock, I will put the eggs by the rocks of our fire pit. Of course, we have rocks as garden edging all around our house, and a gravel driveway. So they will really have to hunt for the eggs. lol


I think it will be fun! It will satisfy my 12 year olds desire to have an egg hunt and include the older teens in a fun, challenging way.


For another fun idea,use glow in the dark Easter eggs for a night time scavenger hunt! See how we used the glow in the dark eggs.


Here are some other fun things for Easter egg hunts!





And here are a couple of scavenger hunt games to play as a family anytime!

  1. When my children got too old, I got black eggs (some I painted black) and put money in each. I did a 1.00 per egg and then have a gold and silver I put 5.00 and 10.00…. Then the Saturday night before Easter Sunday I hid them after dark. Each one of them got a flash light and would hunt them. They really enjoyed it. Don’t know why I’m writing in past tense because even though they are married with children we still have this Easter egg hunt. I added to it though for my grand babies I do two Easter egg hunts….. Saturday night I take glow sticks and put their eggs in those and then Sunday we have the traditional egg hunt. And as far as the golden egg, each of my children put 5.00 in a pot and the one who finds the golden egg wins the pot of money plus my ten (comes out to be the golden egg is now worth about 50.00)…. This is still so much fun to watch my children act like kids again!!!!

  2. What a cool idea. I Pinned this to my Easter board. Several of my grandchildren think they have outgrown the egg hunt. I shall try this!

    my mom did the candy and money for me and my brother when we got too old but still wanted to have some fun(:

  4. We did an Easter egg hunt once as a child; it was so fun.

  5. Laurie Nykaza says:

    The kids did hide the eggs up into their teen who does not like to find candy and $$ in them.

  6. Those are good ideas. I think that the kids are a bit too old but that’s just my opinion.

  7. Michelle C says:

    I love the idea of a scavenger egg hunt as my children get a little older.

  8. What a fun and great idea for the older kids too, love it!

  9. Linda Manns Linneman says:

    This is a great idea for teens. I love that they get to work with Bible verses. Thank you for sharing

  10. My husband and I are 35 and still love doing Easter egg hunts :). These are great ideas for when our kids get older!

  11. Shannon L. Barlow says:

    My kids use to love this when they were little. Now it’s something we can do as a family tradition.

  12. Stephanie Phelps says:

    Oh how creative and awesome to do something that would be great for everyone! I think I will try this! thank you!

    With a teen son. I lover the idea of teen friendly ideas.

  18. Melissa Mazzur says:

    How fun! I have 2 teens and we are always looking for ideas to keep the kid in them!

  19. My oldest is only 10 but already is starting to show signs of being “too old” to do/enjoy the same things as her younger sister. I think creating an egg hunt just for her and her “older cousins” is worth doing, will try it out this coming Easter, thanks for the idea!

  20. Elizabeth Stacy says:

    Great ideal with ester hut for kids and grown ups

  21. When the kids were young we’d hide real and plastic eggs. The plastic had candy, coins or small toys. I think there was a prize for the person who found the most.

  22. vickie couturier says:

    what good ideal,,i have a tween and a teen grandchild

  23. This is a great idea. I will check it out. Thank

  24. alicia szemon says:

  29. sherry butcher says:

    Some good ideas here. Thanks for sharing.

  30. Lee McKeon says:

  35. Megan Filzen says:

    They would love being included!

  36. Love these ideas, I have one child in his teens & 2 others who are younger, so doing the little kid things aren’t cool for our teen. lol. Love the glow in the dark night Easter scavenger hunt and all the ideas to make it hip for him & the little ones. Thank you for sharing.

  37. Heather Stokes says:

    I love this idea! :)

  38. We never got to do easter egg hunts growing up, but I’m sure that we will do them when we have kids!

  39. Love the idea that the teenagers can also have fun too.

  40. Right now my kids are still young enough for the Easter Egg hunts and our community has one. I feel a little let down after those however since it’s just a candy free for all with bigger kids pushing littler kids or parents filling up their kids baskets. I make my kids share their eggs with kids that haven’t found as much.

  41. Amabelle Wee says:

    WoW! You gave me an idea!

  42. When my kids were little I used to do an Easter egg hunt for allthe SUnday School kids We had so much fun~

  43. I love this idea for older children!!!!!!!!

  44. All my kids are grown up but i have a grandson who is 2 it will be fun to have a easter egg hunt this year.

  45. This is a really great idea! Sounds like fun.

  46. It’s hard to believe that Easter is right around the corner. Especially with all of this cold weather we’re having. It’s something to look forward to.

  47. Cathy Jarolin says:

    I Love our idea of the scavenger Easter Egg Hunt~The older Children don”t get left out~ Every Easter the entire family gets together. We always have an Easter Egg Hunt ..We put change in the plastic eggs and to make it fair for everyone. Every child had the same amount of eggs to find in their own color. So they all ended up with the same ..Now our children are adults and we are having the Hunt for Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren!! Fun Memories..

  48. This is such a great idea. My grand kids are teens now no more egg hunts. I will suggest a scavengers hunt to them for Easter. Thanks.

  49. Linda Manns Linneman says:

    This would be a great activity for the teens at church for Easter. Thank you so much for sharing

  50. We do Easter Egg Hunts every year. Thanks for the Christian Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt ideas.

  51. I like this idea because most older kids and teenagers would enjoy this sort of challenge!

  52. I like this idea of yours! Ours are still small enough that we hide them in the house.

  53. What a Great Idea! We used to go to the city park for egg hunts when we were kids! Then, per my parents, we were just too old to go anymore! I love your idea of the scavenger hunt along with the egg hunt. How Fun! I also love the one comment where she does a night time hunt with a silver and gold egg! Such fun! My kids deemed themselves too old to do any more Easter Egg Hunts a couple years ago, so we don’t have any anymore! Thanks so much for this Egg Hunt information which you’ve shared with all of us! I LOVE IT! Thanks again, Michele :)

  54. I love it

  55. Lisa Newton says:

    Loved easter egg hunts when I was young and loved teaching my children how to color their eggs. A wonderful fun family tradition.

  56. Christanna Tucker says:

    This is a great idea for older kids. I would love to do it myself!

  57. What a great idea for teens.

  58. dawn burzawa says:

    this sounds awesome! my kids are older but we still have to color eggs every year and i still have to hide them and the Easter baskets, so I suggest a really hard clue for the scavenger hunt and put their baskets there. I think I will try the scavenger hunt this year and I think I’ll use a word search puzzle. Thanks

  59. I think a scavenger hunt would be a great idea for the older kids, it kicks thing up a notch. A simple Easter Egg hunt is a good idea for the younger children. Thank you for sharing this post.

  60. Linda Manns Linneman says:

    I love the idea of the kids having to fill in the missing word from the bible verse and then that is one of their clues. What a fun game to play with the teens

  61. The church right across the street from us has a yearly egg hunt. It’s cute to see all of the kids dressed up in their Easter dress.

  62. clues for a scavenger hunt is a great idea. o up the ante with bigger treats/rewards inside

  63. elizabeth p says:

    We have been doing Easter hunts for a few years and they love them. My babies are now 17.15.& 14, I hate how fast they grow up. We got a step grandmom a couple of years ago and now have to travel for Easter, so we incorporated stops. One is at a gas station where we stop to use the bathroom. The first year while everyone was waiting to use the potty husband hid things in the store. We called ahead and made sure they would be cool with this. They know us so well we call up and tell them what time we will be there and they have already placed stickers on a few treats. We “pay” for the bathroom usage or so the kids all think. (We are paying for the treats). Its good fun for everyone.

  64. This is a great idea. I have a few older nieces and nephews and I bad having them hunt for eggs with the lil kids. Thanks for sharing!

  65. This is really cute idea. We may have to do something like that.

  66. I would like to print out the clues I think that’d be cool for the kids.

  67. Connie Tillman says:

    This is super cute and a great idea for my 13 and 16 year old.

  68. What a great idea and so much fun! We’ve always had Easter egg hunts because there’s always kids.First my daughter,now my two nieces and my granddaughter.She’ll be a year old,so my daughter can show her where they are.Im going to tell my sister your great idea.Thank you for sharing :)

  69. awesome idea!

  70. We have 5 kids ages 2, 6, 7, 19 & 20. We still have an egg hunt every year. We pick 1 color for our oldest 2 & hide them in the house in really tough places. We put their favorite candies, dollar bills, change, beauty products, etc in them. The littles get candy & treats & theirs are down low on their level, easy out in the open.

  71. robyn donnelly says:

    I think it is a great idea to have older kids help with hiding eggs and hiding them plus do the artwork for the little ones.

  72. I wonder how that whole egg tradition started in the first place?It seems like kind of an odd thing.

  73. The older kids I think would really love to do this. Thanks for sharing.

  74. Dawn Wright says:

    Great ideas my kids love interactive things to do this would be perfect for easter!

  75. Linda Manns Linneman says:

    I can’t wait to try out the Christian Egg Hunt I am sure this will go over big. I appreciate you sharing

  76. barbara langley says:

    Never had one outside before,great idea

  77. Linda Manns Linneman says:

    I am going to try printing the printable worksheets today. I really appreciate you sharing this

  78. I think that teenagers could help set up and supervise an egg hunt for the younger children

  79. Michelle S says:

    I love your idea! Fortunately, my 15-year old still thinks the egg hunt is fun.

  80. What a great idea for those tween years

  81. kerri hughes says:

    I think my older kids would like something like this.

  82. Linda Manns Linneman says:

    I love the idea of finding these colorful eggs for the teen age children. Thank you for sharing

  83. That is a great idea. All the “kids” in my family are grown up so we haven’t had the egg hunt in a long time.

  84. Spring is right around the corner, I hope. It’s hard to believe it’s almost easter with all this cold weather that were having.

  85. What a nice idea. Thank you for sharing

  86. I think this is a great idea. Thanks for sharing.

    13 year old teenager easter egg hunt

  92. One Easter we put the kids names on the egg then instructed them to find their egg only and not to tell the other players because the first one to find all their eggs, wins. I only had 5 eggs per child (3) and out took over an hour. One clue, keep a map of where you hid them.

      Our church does baptism on Easter sunday every year and has an Easter egg hunt afterwards for the newly baptized kids and teens.The boys have to wear a suit and tie and the girls have to wear a poofy,white,short sleeve,top of the knees baptism dress and bonnet with the lace socks and white shoes.It is really cute and special seeing the preteen and teen girls in their white outfits hunting for the easter eggs!
