Little Adventures Treasure Hunt

Who doesn’t love a treasure hunt? I know 6yo does and she’s often hiding things around the house for me to find. When we received a selection of Barny Bear cakes to have a winter adventure with, I knew a treasure hunt was the way to go. I started off preparing the clues for 6yo to follow. It was also good practice for her reading, and a sneaky way to make reading fun.


Our treasure hunt was taking place in the garden so I could tailor the clues and hide the prize!


Can you see something hiding in the leaves?


Wellies on and off we went!

  The first clue was discovered quickly, but the second got her thinking for a few seconds before she looked around the garden to spot the next clue hiding.

The final clue got her thinking!

But then she was off!

Yay the treasure has been found!

Mmmm yummy! I’m not sure why she was looking at the sky eating the treasure though!

Plenty of jumping on the trampoline followed.

    Aw, lovely post, I’ve yet to write our’s up although we had a rather rainy, windy day for ours so didn’t stay out long. Looks like she’s enjoying her Barny bear though!

    That’s a great treasure hunt. I can’t wait until mine are old enough to be able to read clues 🙂

    Treasure hunts are brilliant fun! I sometimes buy up gold coins when they are cheap after christmas, then use them to lay trails!

    Treasure hunts are so much fun for everyone. And the joy of finding the treasure before anyone else does, that is something else 🙂
