Treasure Hunt Games

Fun treasure hunt game variations 

Treasure hunt games can be played in many different ways.  The main idea of the treasure hunt game is to have the kids search for items you have hidden (inside or outside). 

Treasure hunt games can be played inside or out - or both! 

Hide objects or party favors around the house or outside.

Have the kids find items off of a set list, or have them find a certain number of objects from the list. These games can be played in teams or individually.

Treasure Hunt Variation:  Make up clues that lead from one treasure to another.

Example: First game clue (hand to the children) says “Sweet dreams Katie” - the children must figure out that this game clue leads to Katie’s bed. On Katie’s bed place another clue that might say “ Brrrr … it’s cold in here” this will lead them to the refrigerator ..and so on.

   

TIP: On a piece of paper write out your clues one after the other, cut them apart and fold them.

Then on the outside write where you are going to hide it - much less confusing this way! )

Make sure the clues take them inside and outside. Each clue leads to the next and at the end of the hunt is a treasure for the group.


First person or team to collect all the treasure hunt items wins.

- To make the hunt longer I usually place something in the clue that they have to accomplish before they can move on to the next treasure hunt clue. Silly things such as building a 4 ft high tower with blocks, singing 4 nursery rhymes with the name John in them, a human pyramid, etc.

- Give players a treasure hunt bag (usually at the 3rd or 4th clue) and then have them find little prizes (rings, balls, candy) along the way at the stops. This is a lot of fun and well worth the work! All my kids' friends still remember these treasure hunts! - Jan, NY

String Treasure Hunt: For this game take three or four different colored strings/yarn and unwind them all over the house, inside and outside. Up the stairs and then back down. Over and under furniture, beds and chairs. Treasure hunt teams must wind up their roll of string to find the treasure at the end of the roll.
