The City Magazine Since 1975

Easter Egg Scavenger Hunts

For two years, our super talented—and crafty—art director Melinda Smith Monk led a truly unique #ChasEggHunt, hiding ceramic eggs that she had hand-painted and -penned with Charleston-centric designs around the Holy City. We challenged our readers and social followers to find them and then post a photo on Instagram with the hashtag #ChasEggHunt for a chance to win a subscription to Charleston magazine. While this adventure will not take place this weekend, we want the fun, and the contest, to continue—safely, of course.

Here, you’ll find two sizes of downloadable egg designs, courtesy of our creative team:

  • For Kids: Print the larger designs and have your children color, decorate, and tape to windows for neighbors to enjoy.
  • For Crafters: Print the egg-sized designs to transfer to hard-boiled eggs. Our team recommends this wikiHow link for the easiest directions. After the transfer is set, use paint or pen to color the designs. Our art director prefers Sharpie felt pens with a medium tip.

Post photos of your completed eggs (paper or real) to Instagram and/or Facebook with the hashtag #ChasEggHunt. Our team will select two winners—one each in the kids and crafters categories—who will receive a free one-year subscription to Charleston magazine.

Have fun, have a happy Easter, and good luck!
