Valentines Day Scavenger Hunt for Kids With FREE Printable Clues!
Now this one is really something special. Our free included PDF you’ll find at the bottom of the post comes with a whole bunch of adorable Valentine’s Day themed clues for your little ones to keep themselves busy with before finding whatever Cupid’s hidden!
What Age Group Is This Scavenger Hunt For?
All of the clues for this scavenger hunt involve reading. Although, 4-5 year old kids could have the clues read out to them aloud. While they are written in rhyme they feature simple and distinctive places to go hunting after each clue.
What’s great about this adorable scavenger hunt is that the rhyme scheme worked into each of the thematic clues makes it fun for the whole family to participate! Yank your older kids and teenagers off of their games and phones to dive into the fun, too.
(That shouldn’t be challenging if there’s the promise of chocolates, candies or any other goodies you can dream up at the end of the trail!)
How to Set Up These Clues Around the House
Like any good Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt, there’s got to be some clever plotting ahead of time. The beauty of these clues is that they tell you exactly where they need to go. If for whatever reason your house or apartment doesn’t have a suitable place for one of them, use it as a chance to get creative!
After all, that’s what this holiday is all about. Putting some thoughtful and creative thinking behind the love of whoever you’re planning things for.
Here’s some extra pointers for what you could do with them:
- Use the kid’s toys, or art supplies to get creative! Don’t have a stove? Place the next clue on a play kitchen, or one that you’ve drummed up yourself. If all else fails, think of where your kids might think to look for that clue.
- Stuffed animals, (or ‘stuffies’ in our house), are a great way to lead the kids on to the next clue without giving away the goose! Once they see that they’re out of place, they’ll take the hint.
- If you’re really out of ideas, a trail of foil-wrapped chocolate hearts can also be a great way to help them find out where the next clue might be hiding!
