Katrena's Scavenger Hunt #4 With Alphabet Code Clues

Katrena's Indoor Scavenger Hunt #4 With Alphabet Code Clues
Scavenger hunts can be loads of fun for the kids, but sometimes they seem to be over so quickly! This indoor scavenger hunt is a great way to sneak in a little practice with code reading and spelling as the kids must stop and find matching letters for each picture in order to determine where to search next.

You can make this one tougher by hiding the clues in unexpected places at the code's hint. If you have older and younger kids working together, you might wish to hide them so that the clues are easily visible and encourage the older kids to solve the code while the younger kids hunt for the clues.

How to play Katrena's alphabet code treasure hunt
  1. Print the alphabet code (click on the image to enlarge and then select "file" and "print") – the kids will use this to crack the code on the clues.
  2. Print the prizes in code and choose which one(s) you wish to use (1st is "Way to Go", 2nd is "Awesome", 3rd is "Fabulous")
  3. Print clues #1-10 and cut on the horizontal lines, leaving the blank space on the right intact.
  4. Keep clue #1.
  5. Hide clue #2 in the microwave.
  6. Hide clue #3 with the toothbrushes.
  7. Hide clue #4 in the kitchen sink.
  8. Hide clue #5 on the couch.
  9. Hide clue #6 under a bedroom pillow.
  10. Hide clue #7 on the telephone.
  11. Hide clue #8 in a chair.
  12. Hide clue #9 in the refrigerator.
  13. Hide clue #10 on the bookshelf.
  14. Place prize in the stove.
  15. Give clue #1 to the person(s) doing the scavenger hunt.

I hope you and the children will enjoy playing this scavenger hunt. My kids have always loved to solve clues and mysteries, and I thought it would be loads of fun to put the prizes into code too! Find more of my free scavenger hunts and other articles at the Wildflower Bouquets site map.


  1. I just stumbled upon your scavenger and treasure hunts. They are absolutely fantastic! This has been up since 2012 and I'm the first to comment? Crazy! I hope that others stumble upon this fun resource!

    1. I hope it was a "big" hit! Thanks so much for sharing how you used the clues!

  3. It's our tradition to do a scavenger hunt for lunch boxes on snow days (since I make the lunches the night before but we get the snow day call in the morning) - my kids love it and this cryptic one was extra fun. Thank you!

    1. What a fun tradition! Thanks so much for sharing your story and I'm so glad you enjoyed the scavenger hunt.
