Pirates Treasure Hunt
Shoe box or jewelry box
Glitter and glue to decorate the treasure chest
Five pieces of bright colored paper for clue
Crayons or Markers
Root Beer in a bottle
First, you need to make your pirate ship! While the children are coloring place 4 clues around the house. Make the clues easy to identify by using bright colored paper. Even children as young as 2 can play this game by using pictures instead of words on the clues. (e.g. Leave a picture of a bathtub. The next clue should be in the bathtub.) Give the first clue to the children and send them on their quest. The final clue will lead to the treasure! Decorate a shoe box with gold paint and sparkles or use a jewelry box to make your treasure chest. The treasure can be any special surprise! I suggest chocolate coins, root beer in the bottle, and pirate’s booty (popcorn). The kids will LOVE it!
