The Easter stakes are getting higher in the Foy household, gang. Henry’s first Easter, he was about 6 months old. So we put some ears on him and called it a day. The next Easter, we spread a bunch of eggs out on the lawn in clear sight and he just ran around and threw them in a basket. (Or threw them at us.) Last year he was finally old enough to hunt around with friends in the backyard for eggs, and we added Maggie to the mix too. So this year?! I think I can finally challenge ol’ Hank to a bit of an Easter egg scavenger hunt.
I was thinking and thinking of a way to put it together, and couldn’t quite decide. Then we partnered with Brother for a few fun Easter projects and it hit me — their P-touch Embellish printer prints on ribbon! Easter game on. So we’ll be filling some eggs with some of his favorite tiny toys (erasers, finger puppets, and more), and printing clues on the ribbon to direct him to the next egg. The ribbon gets wrapped up in some pretty crepe paper around the surprise egg. So with each one he finds, he gets the fun of opening it and a little riddle that will eventually lead him to his Easter basket. He is gonna love it. Read on for instructions on how to make your own scavenger hunt!

Make Time: 5 Minutes per egg
Step 1: Print out all of your clues on the P-touch Embellish. As you’re getting to know your machine, check out all of the different fonts and sizes that are available. It’s fun to experiment. We chose to print ours on the pink ribbon with gold lettering, but there are tons of options in both ribbon and tape form. (Come back later this month to see a couple of our other favorite ways to use the P-touch Embellish!) Choose your font size and style, type in your lettering, press print, and out comes your custom ribbon (super-fast, I might add).
Step 2: Fill your egg with a small toy. Cut a long strip of crepe paper that’s about 1/2″ wide. Tape one end of the paper to the egg and start wrapping the paper to cover the egg.
Step 3: Once you’ve wrapped a few times, lay your printed ribbon on the crepe paper so that it starts getting wrapped around the egg as well. Continue wrapping until the clue ribbon is entirely covered.
Step 4: When your egg is wrapped sufficiently, use another small piece of tape to tape down the end of the ribbon.
That’s it! Make sure you know which clue is hidden in which egg and hide them accordingly. Our scavenger hunt will take Henry from the living room, to his closet, to the bathtub, to our backyard. Can’t wait to see him figure it all out. And I’d love to know how else you’d use your P-touch Embellish! There are so many possibilities it almost makes my head spin. If you’re on the hunt for one, you can find the printer and cartridges at Michaels. We’re planning a couple of other fun spring projects with it so stay tuned! xoxo
