Do your kids love following treasure maps or going on  a scavenger hunt? Mine too!


There are so many ways of incorporating this kind of play into your homeschool. Not only that, your kids will learn skills such as:

  • Problem solving
  • Leadership
  • Team work
  • Careful observation
  • Map reading 
  • Following instructions
  • Diligence in completing tasks
  • Not eating the map (what, your kids don’t do that?)

  1. I loved scavenger hunts as a kid – must be why I like garage-sales now, I never outgrew it. Mmmm, eating the map. I wonder if you could make a map on rice-paper with a bit of food coloring or in frosting on a cake just because it’s such a ‘secret spy’ thing to do, eating the map.
