Are you looking for something fun and different to do with your kids this upcoming Thanksgiving? This hunt just might be what you are looking for. It comes in a ready-to-print download, all you have to do is hide the clues and watch the fun begin.
This is the perfect activity to entertain the kids while you are busy making the Holiday meal, or as a family challenge. Youth Leaders and Teachers this is something festive to do in the classroom or church.
This game can be played cooperatively or players can race against each other. Once a player solves one clue it will provide the clue to where to find the next. Best part is you can play this game anywhere because it's special design allows you to choose the hiding places!
Each team starts out with a Clue Master sheet and the starter clue.
Each of the clues (see clue samples below) has a numerical answer. When players figure out the answer they look up that number on their Clue Master ( shown on right) and they search in the location written next to that number.
When you set up the hunt you will fill out the Clue Master with whatever locations you want to use as hiding spots, and fill in the rest of the spots with decoy locations.
So if the players believe the answer to a clue is (for example) the number 4, players will look on their Clue Master and go to whatever spot is written in spot number 4 to look for their next clue. If they are correct they will find the next clue there, if they are wrong they will be lead to a decoy location where they will find a Try Again card.
This continues until they have solved all twelve clues. The last clue will lead to the treasure. You can make the treasure whatever you like. We have also included a winners certificate featuring a turkey holding up a sign reading YOU WON!
Each of the clues in this hunt are different, and requires a different way to solve. Once players solve the clue they will look up the answer (which is always a number) on their Clue Master. The location written next to the correct answer is the place they will find their next clue.
NOTE: Average Clue size measures 7.5' x 5' and prints two per page
