Katrena's Indoor Scavenger Hunt #6: Heart Treasure Hunt

Heart Themed Treasure Hunt with Rhyming Clues
This unique heart scavenger hunt includes lots of challenges but is simple and easily adaptable to different levels. I created this game as a Valentine's treasure hunt, but it can be fun to play any time of year. Educational information about the heart or circulatory system can compliment this indoor game nicely.

This is a short one with only five rhyming clues, but it can easily take as long as my scavenger hunts with ten clues if you hide the letters in challenging spots. One particularly fun part of this hunt is that the first letter of each riddle's answer also spells the word "heart." The kids might discover this as they begin to find the letters, which can add to the excitement. The game also encourages reading, rhyming, and problem solving. You can also incorporate teamwork and interdependence if you have several kids playing.

Because the clues only specify a room, you can play this game many times while making it new each time by choosing different hiding places within the rooms.

Directions for Heart Scavenger Hunt #6:

While the kids are in another area:
  1. Print clues #1-5 and cut on lines.
  2. Print answers #1-5 and cut on lines.
  3. Print HEART and cut on lines.
  4. Hide H in the bathroom.
  5. Hide E in the kitchen.
  6. Hide A in the hall.
  7. Hide R in the bedroom.
  8. Hide T in the living room.
Then:
  1. Give clue #1 to the person(s) who will be hunting.
  2. Once the riddle is solved, give the hunter(s) the matching printed answer with the room location.
