not only was it fun for him, but i had a blast making the clues, picking out his favorite candies, and sending him on my wild goose chase! obviously there are a million different ways to do a scavenger hunt, but here's how i did ours.
* paper (red and pink to be festive)
* his favorite candy, treat, anything
* puzzle of sorts (homemade is more fun and personal!)
* a grand prize
* come up with the clues. they can rhyme, or if that makes your brain hurt - they don't.
whatever your little heart desires.
now, don't copy mine because it's way more coming up with your own, but below is the list of my clues.
(i only did five because our apartment isn't all that big... but you can do as many as you like.)
put by the front door:
"you have now begun your very own valentines scavenger hunt. i know, sweet huh? it shouldn't take very long, but don't miss any clues or you won't find your grand prize! your first clue is on the couch. good luck soldier!"
#1: roses are red, violets are blue, for your next clue look in a _ _ _ _. (hint: 4 letters, rhymes with blue.)
#2: february 14th, full of red and pink - to find the next clue, look under the _ _ _ _.
#3: good job! you found me, there's only one more - to finish this chase, look behind the _ _ _ _.
#4: haha, just kidding - i'm making things hard, to end this chase go west 12 yard(s). *ok, maybe feet - but that doesn't rhyme.*
#5: yay! you did it - now wasn't this fun, put the pieces together and your all done! *after completing the puzzle, look on the back to find your valentine!*
* with each clue you can attach the candy/treat - i put his favorite treats with each one and a piece to this puzzle:
|all materials found at wal-mart.|
|back - with baby pic of yours truly|
some may think this is a tad cheesy - but we had so much fun with it... i might even do another one this year :)
