Staff Easter Egg Hunt Idea

Easter egg hunts are for kids/adults of all ages! Below is a post from my staff memo about this time last year. I may have shared this last year but it's pretty timely with Easter right around the corner.

And now for the Easter Egg Hunt: This idea is from a Springfield principal. This is just a fun faculty activity so we will see how it goes. I think I thought of everything but you never know. I also had two little helpers and you never know how much “help” they really were.
  • There are 30 plastic eggs hidden around the building. NONE are in classrooms. They are numbered so we make sure we find them all. (I did not write down where I hid them and I am sure I will forget.)
  • Inside each egg is a QR code for you to scan to see how to claim your prize.
  • Once you have scanned and completed your assignment bring your egg with code to the office for your prize.
  • If your code does not work or the assignment doesn’t apply to you then just bring the egg up for your prize.
  • ONE EGG LIMIT! Once you find your egg you are done. If you find more and want to help a friend out then feel free. Or you can just leave the rest hiding:)
  • Students might find the eggs. If they bring them to you and you don’t have one yet, by all means…… claim the egg! If you have already found an egg tell the student to put it back where he/she found it.
  • I think all the clues/assignments are student friendly so you are welcome to share with them if you would like.
  • Other than an Easter Egg Hunt, how could you use this in your classroom???? See me if you need help. (I created the codes and printed copy of codes on my phone. I did not use a QR code website. I can show you how to do that if you would like.)
  • HAVE FUN!!!
