Kids love a treasure hunt……actually everyone loves a treasure hunt!
And it’s a perfect birthday party activity…you can set it up cheaply and make it fit the space and number of kids you have. And even theme it according to what your child loves!
The only challenge is writing the clues and making the plan….
So here is a set of clues ready made for your next treasure hunt…
These were used in park space and we set it up with teddies at each clue point holding the next clue.
At the end point we had a group of teddies with the ‘treasure’ which was a hamper full of goodies!!
You could use these clues and do them with teddies in the way we did or adapt for your own themed treasure hunt.
For more themed and ready made treasure hunts which incorporate video clues, clue cards and treasure puzzles to download and print see The Treasure Hunt Adventure Packs
Treasure Hunt Clue 1 (read out by person at the start):
“Face your teddy, then get ready
Where’s he looking?
The next clue is someone busy cooking……
Find the bear and look beneath his cooking tools with care……”
Clue 2 notes:
Your teddy at clue point 2 (holding clue 3) needs to be holding something to do with cooking and hide the clue under this!

And take 2 steps over there
Find the bear enjoying a cup of tea and then clue 3 you will see…..”
