How It Works:
One child, or a number of children working together, can enjoy Clued In Kids treasure hunts.
Each hunt contains a series of clues with activities and puzzles that, when solved, reveal the location of the next clue, and the next, until the treasure is found.
In less than 10 minutes an adult or older child can set up a hunt that will provide an hour or more of excitement for kids.
- Before hiding clues, write a child’s name atop each; assigning clues will minimize squabbles and lets you give trickier clues to older kids, easier to younger. Assign activity clues to “everyone.”
- The treasure you hide at the end of the hunt can be anything – stickers, tattoos, dollar bills, cupcakes, tickets – the true treasure is, of course, the fun and challenge of the hunt itself.
Clued In Kids treasure and scavenger hunts teach academics (logic, math, social studies, reading), as well as social skills and teamwork while leading kids on an adventure around the home or classroom.
They loved it!
The boys did the Clued In Kids hunt yesterday. They loved it! Afterward they were inspired to make their own hunts up all evening and the next morning!
It’s a great idea!
Teaching through treasure hunts is such a great idea! It’s an effective and healthy way for kids to learn, and best of all, they enjoy it!
Easy to do!
I love how the Clued in Kids hunts are already prepared and easy to do when we have downtime.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is the difference between a treasure hunt and a scavenger hunt?
A: A treasure hunt is when a series of clues leads kids to a “treasure.” … A scavenger hunt, on the other hand, is a search for a list of items.
Q: How many kids can play at one time?
A: Between 1 and 10 kids is usually best. With multiple players it is often good to “assign” clues by writing a child’s name at the top of each. That child is then responsible for solving the clue or asking for help. This helps to cut down on the squabbles.
Q: What age is best for these hunts?
A: Generally, these hunts are designed for elementary school kids (K – 5th grade).
Q: Can kids of different ages hunt together?
A: Yes! In fact all our hunts have easier and harder clues because we know that rarely do you have a group of kids who are all the same age (except for birthday parties, and even then, siblings are often present). Plus, older kids often enjoy helping and teaching the younger ones.
Q: How long does it take to do a treasure hunt?
Our treasure hunts usually provide between 1 and 2 hours of fun for kids.
Q: What if I don’t have a clue-hiding place that is specified in a hunt?
Clued In Kids treasure hunts use hiding places found in most homes (doorbell, fork, bike, etc.). But, if any hiding place does not exist in the home, simply pocket that clue. When the time comes for the missing clue, tell the kids to do an activity to get it (i.e. jumping jacks).
