The most beloved item in my house is the flashlight.
Seriously, my kids will do ANYTHING to have a flashlight in their hands!! That’s why we created the alphabet scavenger hunt and came up with some ways to learn in the dark. We love these games so much, that we wanted to create a new way to play at night.
This time, we had a treasure scavenger hunt at night and it was so fun!
When I saw these cute little coins at the dollar store, I knew that we could have some fun with them! In our house, my three-year-old calls them treasure, so I took the treasure and hid them throughout her room. You won’t believe how simple this is to set up!
What You Need for the Scavenger Hunt
- Treasure or Coins
Since my daughter is still three-years-old (alright…she’s almost four…*sigh*), I hid the treasure in obvious places.
It also helped ME to remember where I hid the coins. I know, I know…but, it really is challenging to see in the dark! That’s why the treasure scavenger hunt is so much fun at night!
- Hide the treasure up high (like the picture above), on the ground, or on top of furniture
- If your child needs help, give little hints as to where to find the treasure
- To help her with the treasure in the photo (^ up there ^), I told my three-year-old to look for treasure on letters hanging in the room
- Once they spot it with the flashlight, they get to keep the treasure!
Note: You might want to have a flashlight for each player in your house…even my one year old insisted on having his own flashlight!!
