If you’re ever on Pinterest, I’m sure you’ve seen the photo of the balloons taped to a person’s door as a fun way to start off someone’s birthday. I mean, it’s everywhere. I think that idea is awesome but you can’t do it every year, so try out these fun birthday scavenger hunt ideas this year instead.
This birthday scavenger hunt is the perfect way to start someone’s day off right from the very moment they wake up. Instead of waiting until later at night to have cake and open presents, why not give them one or two right off the bat? I swear someone has proven in a study somewhere that your day goes better if it starts off well. If someone hasn’t proven it, I’d better start working on that because I swear it’s true.
I only created four clues because it’s just supposed to be a way to start off someone’s birthday happy, not their full gift. And I wrote the clues in an easy way to give them a couple of gifts along the way – their favorite breakfast or treat, a card (or something else) in the mailbox, and then finishing it off with an actual gift to open.
All you have to do is download the free printable scavenger hunt cards below, put one either under their door at night or if it’s someone who won’t wake up, right on their bedside table so they’ll see it as soon as they wake up. Make their favorite breakfast and leave the second card next to their breakfast plate. Continue leaving clues and small little gifts along the hunt with a larger more exciting gift at the end of the hunt.
