Organising a Treasure Hunt
Easter holidays are upon us and a there is nothing like an Easter treasure hunt to entertain the kids and bring family and friends together.
The key to a great treasure hunt lies in clever hiding places, planning and of course a fabulous prize. So finalise the grand prize well in advance – how about a hamper of Easter goodies for kids and a bottle of champagne for the adults? We have some great Easter treats to make up the grand prize.
Weave in a story
Your family jewels have been hidden away by the mischievous Easter bunny! He has left a trail of Easter eggs with clues and a map pointing to the grand prize. You need the kids to help you find the clues and reclaim the family jewels. Click here for Easter Eggs.
Making the clues
Take a print out of an Easter Bunny and draw a rough map of your house at the back of the print out. Cut this into pieces and stick each piece on to an Easter egg. The kids have to find all the pieces and join the pictures to reveal the map to the family jewels. Click here for stationery.
Hiding the clues & the treasure
The secret to a successful treasure hunt is careful planning. Firstly decide on a great hiding place for the grand prize, and then decide on hiding places for the smaller eggs. For younger kids, choose a smaller search area so you can keep an eye on them. A larger search area will be more suitable for older children and adults.
