Treasure Hunt

We had a treasure hunt today.

It was nothing big, just a few notes and a couple Hershey’s Kisses at the end, but the kids loved it.

A treasure hunt is a great way for kids to practice reading. You can vary the types of notes for different reading levels or even for other subjects.

Some different types are:
Simple words
Cursive words
Spanish (or other language)
Riddles
Codes
Maps

If you have several kids participating, you could color code the clues so each kid gets one that’s age appropriate.

Have you ever had a treasure hunt with your kids? I’d love to hear about it.

    You can never go wrong with a treasure hunt! We’ve done them for St.Patrick’s day and Easter, but I love your ideas of using it as a tool to practice various reading skills! Also, my husband’s family has a tradition of making birthday scavenger hunts where you have to follow clues to find your gifts which are hidden all over the house/garage/yard!

    I love the idea of doing the treasure hunt in a different language. A really fun way of learning!
