Get kids thinking, having fun, and moving with this fun treasure hunt.
This outdoor treasure hunt is perfect for the park or a social distancing outdoor birthday party.

- Something you climb
Our treasure hunt adventures give kids 20-60 minutes of learning fun, based on players’ experience, skill, age, and group size. Hide clues around the house (both inside and out) and kids must solve riddles and puzzles to find the next clue.
Younger kids can definitely enjoy the fun, however, they will need more support to complete the puzzles. Additionally, older kids also enjoy these treasure hunt games.
Number of Players:
We recommend our games be played individually, with a partner, or up to 4 players. These games are fun for the whole family to play at home (and a chance for siblings to work together).
You can play with more players, however, we recommend printing out enough clues so that every player or every two players can share a clue to solve.
To set-up the game, you need nothing more than paper, the provided PDF documents, a printer or printing service, and a pair of scissors. We include directions and an answer key explaining exactly how to set-up the game and hide the clues.

We used it at my sons birthday and I had them pair up... the kids loved the clues and had so much fun. I added prizes with each clue (blow-up swords, eye patches, pirate tshirts, and pirate bandanas) so that by the end they were dressed like a pirate when they found the treasure - we used a treasure box and had bags of candy for each kid.
