We adore birthdays if you haven’t already guessed. I love making the day special and fun and one of the ways we do that is to have a birthday treasure hunt. This is right up Maxi’s street as he loves puzzles.
These are the clues we used, which I took from the Real Treasure Hunt website.
A clue to find where you keep things cold
Where to go next is what you’ll be told.
Letters, a screen, and even a mouse,
look around, you’ll find it somewhere in the house.
When it gets late and you turn out the light
This is the place you’ll be found each night.
You’ll need to think hard to solve the next clue
Find a covering for your foot, but it’s not a shoe.
Turn up the heat it will help you bake
Cookies, casseroles, even a cake.
A place where water falls down like rain
after it falls on you it goes down the drain.
A metal box with numbers is usually the norm
For this thing that helps us get our food warm.
My boy adores gemstones so his birthday present was a tiny wooden chest filled with gems. He also got some LEGO and Tech Deck too.
Your Comments I used to love doing treasure hunts for my children’s parties. We always had them in our house – the guests liked exploring. I like those clues! Very handy not to have to struggle to think them all up and write my own terrible rhymes!
A very happy birthday to Maxi – great clues, may borrow a few for an Easter Egg hunt xx
