10 Treasure Hunt Clues to Copy

Who has time to make a treasure hunt? Not many of us, particularly if we are working from home and doing all the usual jazz. I was making one for my kids anyway so thought I would share the love. There are ten indoor clues and ten outdoor clues. If you don’t have the places referred to in the clues, (for example, a trampoline or veggie patch, simply leave out those clues).

This is a fairly easy set of clues for younger kids but older children still might enjoy doing it. Simply cut and paste them into a document and print and cut them out. You’ll have to draw your own treasure map for the final clue but make it as easy or difficult as you like. An X that marks the spot never goes astray either. I hope your family enjoys following the clues and finding the treasure.
