Every year I craft an Easter Egg puzzle hunt for my daughter to find a bunch of chocolate secreted about the house. I am currently busy writing the 2020 hunt (the Casebook of Sherlock Hares), but I have a bunch of historic puzzles that I could post, so I thought I would do so. I thought I would try something easier, or certainly less involved than the last one, and easier for non-native English speakers.
The third puzzle is here: - It's Too Hard - Easter Egg Puzzle 3 - The Enigma of the Five Vowels
This runs to Noon - GMT Time - on 8 April. The prize is Haimrik
Credit: This was one of the sample puzzles for the Princeton Puzzle Hunt.

The first thing you need to do is to identify the pictures and to see that they can be put into groups:
bat, cat, hat, Matt, rat
bed, head, lead, red, sled, Ted, wed
chick, kick, stick
clock, dock, flock, lock, rock, sock
bug, drug, hug, jug, mug, plug, rug, shrug, slug, Ugg
From the title of the puzzle, you can guess that the groups should be taken in the order of the five vowel sounds: A, E, I, O, and U.
Within each group, connecting up the words in alphabetical order will trace up a letter of the alphabet. For example, tracing bat->cat->hat->Matt->rat gives you the letter V.
The letters you obtain are V, O, I, C, and E. Therefore, the answer is VOICE.
After utterly failing at the last puzzle, it was nice to be able to get through this one! (bump for solved!)
Bump, thanks for the puzzle!
Bump for solved (but own the game already)
Bump for solved. Thanks!
Another fun puzzle to solve!
I have this feeling i am close to understanding, yet so far.
Ah yes more puzzles!
My first idea didn't pan out (yet?).
Got there in the end. :)
I think previous puzzle was too hard, so people do not really even try solving this one... I do not know what to do after naming objects...
Can you group the objects in any way? The title might help.
Nope. Not really helpful "hint", since that's what I was trying to figure out all the time.
