Some ways to use a printable treasure hunt are by utilizing word puzzles, clues or fill-in-the-blank games to lead children to a treasure. These uses are good for birthday parties and other gatherings that involve numerous children.
It is important to match the clue or puzzle difficulty to the age of the children; for example, older kids get tougher word clues that require more mental skill. It is also a good idea to use clues kids with which kids can associate; if the kids have a favorite spot to play hide-and-seek, that could become one of the puzzle questions. Clues can be catered to kids of any age, such as "Go where the ___ likes to fetch his ball." The blank space could be dog, which can be part of the treasure hunt.
