Why Plan a Treasure Hunt?

Ever hear “I’m bored”?

It’s what all parents dread hearing and one of the most daunting problems to solve.

It’s far too easy to let your kids plop down in front of an electronic device and zone out, but we all know it’s better for their health and creativity to fill that down time with fun, stimulating activities.

Surprise them with a treasure hunt.

It will give them something fun to do, and treasure hunts are a great way for you to get more involved with your kids and learn about their interests. We have as much fun planning our treasure hunts together as we do actually completing them.
