Easter Egg Hunt Clues
Name of Game: Decipher the Code

See clues for Easter Clue Hunt and Easter Treasure Hunt for words and phrases to use in this game.

Reverse codes:

Write out your clue (for example, "under your pillow") and then copy it backwards. This can be writing the whole message in reverse order ("wollip ruoy rednu") or write each word backwards ("rednu ruoy wollip") or use a mirror to write the letters backward.

Number codes:

 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 91011121314151617181920212223242526

Example: The code for "Under bed" would be: "21-14-4-5-18 2-5-4"

Letter replacement codes:


Example: The code for "Under bed" would be: "FMWVI YVW"

Morse Code:

Put your clues into Morse Code and see how well your children can decipher the code.


Use Braille code for your clues. You could simply draw the code, or for more authenticity you could use a knitting needle to make indentations in the code. If you choose to make indentations, don't forget that you will need to mirror the code since it is reversed on the front of the page.

Pig Pen Code:

Draw a Tic-Tac_Toe grid with the first nine letters of the alphabet (A - I) in the squares. Draw another grid with the next nine letters (J - R) in the squares but with a small circle above each letter. Finally, draw another grid with the remaining letters (S - Z) and a dash over the letters. The final square of the grid is Space. Then code your clue by drawing the grid corresponding to the letter of the alphabet. (See example below.)
