Along the way of the treasure hunt, you can have small prizes or candy. Alternatively, save the biggest prize for the end of the hunt. Perhaps a fun New Year Gift. You could even make the prize an experience like a family trip that will be taken next year (which is basically… tomorrow!)
Who are these Treasure Hunt Clues for?
Toddlers: When doing this new year treasure hunt with toddlers, pair the child with older kids, or an adult, to guide them through the riddle clues. As hints, you can also have pictures of each item featured in the clues.
Teens: Youth and older kids can also enjoy this treasure hunt. Split them up in pairs, print the file twice and set the timer. The mission is to be the child that runs the race with the shortest time limit. The winner gets a trophy (which isn’t really a trophy – just all the glory and boast) which means so much to any teen!
Adults: Why not? Take on your inner youth and go on on a scavenger hunt around the home. The rewards are small bottles of liquor or maybe one pound lost at each new clue…. man, I would be running that race fast! But really, if doing this hunt for a significant other, you could make it sweet and have a photo of memorable events of the past year. It create a cute and instant photo album. Toast with Champagne glasses at the end.
