Hoppy Easter

A traditional game re-invention challenge
How might you re-invent the Easter Egg Hunt?
Could you create an Easter egg hunt without chocolate eggs? Or, perhaps for a family living far away from each other playing over Zoom? What does your new game look like and how will people play?
Hints and tips to get started
  • If you didn't have any chocolate or eggs - what might you hide? Could you make something?
  • What if you only had one room, what would you do? Make a miniature hunt?
  • What if you weren't looking for eggs but tracking the Easter bunny? What clues might you create? Bunny poo? Paw prints?
  • Could you make a hunt for someone to play over Facetime / Houseparty / Zoom?
  • What if you weren't allowed to use your eyes to find the hidden objects? What if you could only use your sense of smell?
  • What if you were looking for pieces of a puzzle?
