Lucky Shamrock Treasure Hunt

Now that we are homeschooling and confined to our house, we are in desperate need of fun learning activities for the kids! That's why we created this LUCKY SHAMROCK TREASURE HUNT.
It's time to get creative!
Jason was inspired last night and decided to create a St. Patrick's Day Treasure hunt. He literally JUST created it.
It is a treasure hunt that does NOT require a Blimey Box Locking Game Kit and it keeps kids busy, having fun, and learning for about 40 minutes.

Treasure Hunt Introduction
Here is the Introduction clue that you give to your child. They must figure out where the first clue is hidden based on this clue.
Clue #1 Treasure Hunt
 Clue #1 is hidden by a toothbrush. This gives a hint to where the next clue is hidden.
Clue #2 Treasure Hunt
Clue #2 is on a tree. Inside the bag are letters to put in order to find out where the next clue is hidden.

Once they figure out the clue, kids will be on a mission looking under chairs!

Our final treasure was a show and a piece of candy. A lot of work for our son, but he had a lot of fun!
We are all about making learning fun for kids.
