Indoor treasure hunt

ages 3-6


Brown paper bags, non-breakable toys or household objects

Activity Detail

Tell the kids to hide in one room of the house. Then take some toy cars, action figures, or other non-breakable toys and objects and hide them in a different room. Once you are done hiding, give each kid a brown paper bag and then have them come into the room and try to find all the hidden objects. A way to make this game fun and educational is to hide things that all fit into a theme (things from the kitchen, things that move) or to have each child look for things that fit a theme (Johnny will find all the green things; Susie will find all the yellow things). They love looking all over the place -- it's like a treasure hunt!

My 3 year old daughter has loved playing this game since she was 2. She also likes to hide the objects for me to find. This game keeps her entertained for an amazing amount of time!

I loved this game!!! But my 3 year old throws a fit because I put the objects were he can't find and reach them. Then we played one day and he bit me and said "NO!!!" Then I sat on my chair and started to cry. :(
