We made this one a little challenging, so even older kids will enjoy it, too!
Treasure Hunt Setup
We include Instructions and an Answer Key for setting up your treasure hunt.
Give your child the introduction clue. Hopefully, this will guide them to a mirror.
Once kids solve the riddle they will go in search of the next clue on a mirror. That is where they will find this clue taped to a mirror.
Egg Clue 1:
Your child needs to use the mirror to read the clue in the reflection. This clue will lead them to their bed.
The clue and the first puzzle are hidden under the child's pillow. We put the clue cards in plastic eggs to make it more fun!
Egg Clue 2:
Inside each egg, they will find a riddle clue to read. Now they must solve the puzzle to decode the next clue.
They must solve the clue to the riddle, "What does the Easter Bunny like to do after a long day?" Once they solve it, they will see:
Now, kids will need to go to a couch to find the Egg clue #3 and puzzle to solve.
We hid the clue and puzzle behind a couch cushion (so it took longer to find).
Egg Clue 3:
This maze puzzle reveals a secret message:
The next clue is hidden in a closet. Clue #4 Puzzle is the free sample! Click here to download this free sample clue puzzle to try with your little one!
Egg Clue 4:
This next clue is tricky for kids to solve, but it is a FREE PRINTABLE to try. First, kids will unscramble the word answers at the bottom of the page. Next, they write the words into the correct places at the top. The final hint reads: Kitchen.
Off to the kitchen to find the next hidden clue.
Egg Clue 5:
This puzzle is tricky, too! Kids must find the hidden words and then use the circled letters (from left to right) to reveal the next clue: "Backyard."
When kids get to the backyard, they will find the final decoder puzzle.
Kids must figure out (based on the decoder clues), where to tape the 5 egg clues. Once they do, they will solve the final puzzle to get the treasure.
Now they know to look in the shower (where we have hidden the final prize)!
We taped the final prize (which for Brewer was Family Movie Night and a Ring Pop) to the shower.
Brewer had a blast doing this treasure hunt and it took him almost an hour to complete.
We hope you enjoy doing this treasure hunt with your own kids!
