The first scavenger hunt I did for the kids was one year ago, on Valentine's Day (http://workingmomwonders.blogspot.com/2013/02/scavenger-hunt.html). They have so much fun that I created hunts for other holidays throughout the year.
Here is the second round of Valentine's Day...
The clues (Had to make the clues a little easier this year because David and Rachel would be playing without big brother's help):
It’s Valentine’s Day, Hooray! Go find your first clue in the room where you start your day.
I hope this hunt isn’t making you mad, go find your next clue where you plug in the ipad.
Valentine’s Day is so much fun, go get a Kleenex in case your nose runs.
Valentine’s Day sees no crying; find your next clue where the clothes are drying.
Let’s hope Rachel doesn’t mind… in her room is the last clue you will find.
You did it!! You are such a sweetheart, now go and eat your poptart!
Yes, clues are pretty cheesy, but he will like them.
Start by making a Valentine for the kids.
Cut it up into 6 pieces. (One piece will be attached to each clue. At the end of the hunt, they will be able to put the pieces together to read the Valentine.
I found some heart balloons at a craft store. I attached a clue and a Valentine piece to each of the balloons. The first saying is sitting at his spot at the breakfast table.
Along with each clue, I put a "treat" next the the hidden balloons. The kids will each take a basket, and following the clues, will find their Valentine pieces and treats.
