Incorporating A Treasure Hunt Into The Workplace

Perhaps the two most important needs for a treasure hunt activity at the workplace to be successful are: It must be entertaining and creative enough to hold the interest of adults who have probably already been on more treasure hunts than the care to remember AND they must be versatile enough to not impede work throughout the day/week. Here are some additional ideas for incorporating treasure hunt adventures within the office:

* If the adventure hunt has enough versatility, you can spread the hunt throughout and entire day or even week. Release clues sporadically throughout the day… clues that will help them reach their goal. Each of the treasure hunt puzzles collections we provide have clues associated with each puzzle, allowing for this type of format.

* Clues can also be offered as rewards to employees as they complete different work tasks.

* Teams can be comprised of members within the same work department (to assist in the team building efforts) or from different departments to promote cross department relations.

* When incorporating a hunt as a fun activity to be done all at one time, incorporate the theme by way of decorations at the end of the hunt - giving them an exciting finale to their adventure!

* To encourage participation, allow those employees who successfully complete the treasure hunt to put their names in a raffle to win a prize at the end.

* Of course, treasure hunts also make great activities for family picnics and charity events!
