Why a Puzzle Treasure Hunt?

Treasure hunts can be lots of fun. There are endless variations so you can mix things up to keep them interesting and hold your kids’ attention.

A puzzle treasure hunt adds an extra element. It requires players to work together and problem-solve to reach the end of the hunt, because the players must put together a small jigsaw puzzle to reveal each clue. What a great way to foster cooperation and communication skills among your kids—all while they’re having fun!
