Who’s ready for a treasure hunt? I am, I am! I’ve always been a kid at heart, and loved doing treasure hunts. I still do – but usually do my hunting at garage and estate sales now. Hee hee.
Back story… so every St. Patrick’s Day growing up my dad would tell us the story of how he caught a Leprechaun . After he caught one, the Leprechaun gave him $100 (that little fibber…). So naturally, as kids, we would spend our time trying to find one too. This eventually evolved into a treasure hunt I would put together for my younger brother, with treasure at the end. I now carry on this tradition with my own kids and they loooove it.
Give this St. Patrick’s Day holiday treasure hunt a try and add some extra fun to your kid’s day. Don’t you just love my sparkly green box? I found this gem at Hobby Lobby in the party section. Even without a coupon it was $1.49. I printed out my clues on green scrapbook paper (to save on ink and add pizazz). Then I became “sneaky mom” and hid clues all over the house. So fun, even for me!
Then off the kids go at having fun..searching, following the clues. It’s so thrilling!!
But the best part is when they find their little pot o’ gold at the end of the hunt.
We created this awesome little treasure hunt printable for you so you can do this too! All the clues are included, all you need to do is print it out and make your pot o’ gold. Enjoy!
