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 St. Patrick's Day 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 Locking Game Kit and it keeps kids busy, having fun, and learning for about 40 minutes.
We thought we would share since we're all looking for ways to keep our kids busy and this was a huge hit at our house!

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 is hidden by a toothbrush. This gives a hint to where the next clue is hidden.
Clue #2 is on a tree. Inside the bag are letters to put in order to find out where the next clue is hidden.
Clue #3 is hidden in the kitchen. Kids must decode the puzzle to find the next clue.
Once it is solved, kids know that they must go and look for the next clue in the bedroom.
Clue #4 is hidden in the bedroom. Kids work on some math skills to find the next message.
Kids solve it to find out that leprechauns like to take baths!
Clue #5 can be found in the shower. Kids must put all the shamrock clues in the correct order to reveal where the final treasure 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.
Kids can practice reading the clues (with help from mom or dad if needed).
- Tally Marks (counting by 5s)
- Double-digit addition and subtraction
- Learning made fun!
Bonus: it covers lots of math skills (so it counts as your child's math work for the day - if they are in Kindergarten or 1st). However, even older kids will enjoy this treasure hunt experience!
Print, cut, set up, and enjoy 40 minutes of your child solving a fun learning challenge!
