Treasure Hunt

treasure-hunt-5

We were stuck inside from wind and rain – the perfect chance to brighten up the day and set up a treasure hunt! All you need is crepe paper and a treasure waiting at the end.

You can either set up this game while your child naps or is in another room, but I knew Travis would be very into the crepe paper itself, so he helped me roll it and spread it all around.

You can make your trail as complicated or simple as you like. We looped around door handles…

… and wound under pillows…

…and crisscrossed multiple trails.

Because we’re in the holiday season, the prize waiting at the end of our line was a candy cane – the first one Travis has ever had, leading to much delight! Any similar simple-yet-joyful prize is sure to brighten even the dreariest day.

As a bonus, Travis then invented games with the leftover crepe paper for quite a while!
