Easter Scavenger Hunt – Free Printables

The girls have requested a treasure/scavenger hunt style egg hunt this Easter, so because I’d rather design something myself than pay for a ‘kit’ at the shops, and I didn’t want to just use blank bits of paper, I decided to make my own clue sheets to make it a bit more fun.
