Clear Instructions

If you haven’t done a print-at-home treasure hunt activity before, you will find that the files included with the products from ActivityTreasureHunt walk you through the process really clearly.

There are three PDF files included with the download, one with step by step instructions and two with all of the clues and activities.

The instructions included give you an easy and a hard version for all of the clues, so that you can adapt the activity to best suit the age group that you are working with.

The clue below was mirror. An easy version is to tape the next clue directly on the front of the mirror but of course we went for the harder version and hid it behind.

Bonus Activities

The treasure hunt comes with two extra bonus activities. You can use these for your treasure at the end of the hunt or just as a fun extra.
