Scavenger hunts are one of our family’s favorite activities. Who doesn’t love to follow clues around the house to find a special treat or reward? The challenge of figuring out a clue or writing them thrills me. I have written simple scavenger hunts for toddlers and preschoolers, scavenger hunts for a 10 year old girl’s glamour birthday party to complex clues for teenagers leading them all around town. My kids even helped write a scavenger hunt for daddy to welcome him home from work one day. Their favorite part? They were his prize!
Today, we’re doing an activity that combines reinforcing household rules (like turn off the lights when you leave a room) with the fun of a scavenger hunt. Be sure to find a fun treat or little toy for your kids to find at the end. Work with them as they decipher the clues that will lead them around your house. Ask questions to help them figure out the answer. Talk about the household rules as you go.
