Instead of blown out hollow eggs, write the Bible reference on the egg or use plastic eggs.

What to do
Hide the eggs out of sight in the locations indicated by the clues.
Give the youth one clue to start that leads to one of the hidden eggs.
Each egg then reveals the clue to the next egg. You can also use teams of youth and color the eggs by team or have completely different sets of clues and locations. You can add additional slips of paper as vouchers for a prize or mark some of the eggs as special prizes for youth.

Take it to the Next Level
In many ways the Bible is like a treasure hunt. Found within its verses are many clues to live life to its greatest potential both in our relationship with God and with others. Unlike this hunt, youth need to read the verses in context to get a better understand of what it is talking about.

The Bible, God’s Wisdom or righteous living is often referred to as treasure
Proverbs 2:4; Proverbs 10:2; Proverbs 15:6; Matthew 6:20-22; Matthew 13:43-45; Matthew 13:52; 2 Corinthians 4:7; Colossians 2:3
