I just read this sweet post on Bobbledybooks.com about the fun treasure hunt they had for their brand new 5 year old.

Such fun!

What I love about this is that it’s great for kids of almost any age, it’s fun AND the focus is on the enjoyment of the activity almost more than the presents.

Now don’t get me wrong. I love presents like everyone else does.  It just seems like, these days, kids are so focused on what they’re going to get that they don’t really enjoy any of it.

Enter the treasure hunt.  You can make it as simple or elaborate as you want – and it’s a beautiful thing.  For your younger sweeties, make the clues with pictures or easy to follow words.  Help them when needed, obviously.  Something that may be a no brainer to you might not click with an excited birthday boy or girl.

Make it worth it too.  Have a longed for gift as the final find or maybe even a fancy birthday breakfast or lunch item.  Have as much fun creating the hunt as your kids will have searching for clues.   You’ll love it!
