    Default Easter egg hunt help!

    This year I'd like to extend our egg hunt from 00.478seconds to at least a few minutes. I like the idea of making clue cards, something like this

    The problem is I majorly suck at writing poems.
    Can any clever hubbers please help by writing a short poem to include these areas-
    Bathroom
    Trampoline
    Swings
    Veggie garden
    Desk
    Fish pond

    Bless your cotton socks 😀

    We've always done a type of treasure map for DD. When she was little it was really well drawn and the "x" was in each place on the map where the eggs actually were. As she got older, we make it quite hard. We have the hunt inside (because of the wildlife) and we hide them in really obscure places (ie under one of the coffee mugs in the kitchen - she has to life a few to find it) and just put the number of "x"s in each room where the eggs are. We now get a good 30-60 mins of sleep-in while she hunts. (She's 10)

    Maybe need a bit more info to be completely accurate, but..,

    The first place you should look
    I really think
    Is where you find
    The shower and sink

    From there you need
    To search the place
    Where you jump up and down
    (Don't fall on your face!)

    Speaking of up and
    Speaking of down
    You can push yourself
    To where the next eggs are found

    Where to now?
    Oh where should you go?
    How about to the place
    Where the vegetables grow?

    Look for a table
    That's next to a chair
    In the office
    For your next eggs are there

    And last but not least
    You'll get your chocolate wish
    Just travel to where
    You might see some fish.

    Meh. It's a start anyway :-)
