Treasure Hunt Adventures in the Classroom
creative treasure hunt lends itself PERFECTLY to getting kids
excited within a classroom setting. Themed treasure hunts can
also add a new dimension to your themed unit - people remember
more of that they DO than any other way! Follow these helpful
tips to engage the children in new and exciting ways within a
treasure hunt activity format.
* Remember, a treasure hunt doesn't have to be completed all at
once. Different clues can be released throughout a day, week or
month! In this way, a single activity can build the excitement
within the classroom as your students progress on the hunt. Our
treasure hunt puzzles packages allow for this kind of versatility
as each puzzle comes with its own set of clues.
* Group your students in smaller teams to promote group problem
* To really build the excitement of your themed hunt, try having
a letter sent to your classroom from one of the characters sending
them on the hunt in the first place. This can be done several
days BEFORE the hunt/adventure even begins to really drum up the
* Offer clues to the treasure hunt as rewards to the class for
good behavior, academic achievement on a test, etc.
* They can also be great for family day events and especially
* Teams can purchase a starter sheet to get them going on the
hunt. The final destination of the hunt can be a hidden location
where teams that finish submit their names into a raffle for a
donated prize. The participants will have fun playing
the prize is bonus!
* Have local sponsors pay for the opportunity to have their business
advertisements printed on the BACKsides of all your clues and
maps! This is a great way to earn some extra income beyond the
participation ticket prices.

Treasure Hunts Adventures in your Party
days, treasure hunts are typically only seen at children's parties
because of their inability to entertain adults, but rather due
to the fact that adults have already been on more than they care
to remember and the ones they participated in were largely all
the same. Our themed treasure hunt adventures go beyond the stale
versions of rhyming clue to rhyming clue. By utilizing these ideas,
you can take your adventure even FURTHER for your guests!
* Allude to the adventure subtly in your invitations. There's
no need to call it a treasure hunt - make it more exciting by
naming it an adventure
and then giving them one!
* Have someone dressed up as a character in your treasure hunt
adventure arrive at the party when it's time for the adventure
hunt to begin. Depending on the theme you've chosen, having them
come in costume could really impress your party guests!
* The versatility built into our treasure hunt puzzles allow for
the activities to be spread THROUGHOUT the party. It can be the
perfect activity for your guests to participate in as they mingle
with the other guests and enjoy the other party activities you
* Placing your guests in small teams allows your guests to get
to know other guests that they perhaps wouldn't have had the chance
to know. At the completion of the adventure, your guests would
be generally more acquainted with each other.
* Our adventure hunts have the versatility of allowing you to
use any number of the treasure hunt puzzles and in any order.
In this way, you can create the perfect activity to fit with the
time and space constraints of your party!

Treasure Hunt Adventure at the Workplace
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!

an adventure that fits within your theme is a VERY impressive

kind of fellowship as they each work together to achieve a common
