Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt
So it’s funny. I actually created this scavenger hunt for my 4-year-old, but you could easily use it for a boyfriend, husband, or significant other as well. There’s nothing really that makes it kid specific so feel free to use it for whoever for Valentine’s Day! I think it’s fun to do little surprises for my preschooler for all the holidays but now that I think about it, I really should do them for my husband as well – a Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt for him!
This Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt is super simple to setup. Simply print out the Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt riddles I made for you, hide them in the designated locations around your house, and give the hunter their first clue to start.
Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt Riddles
Like with all of my scavenger hunts, I tried to make the riddles themed (Valentine’s Day!) and generic enough that anyone could use them in their house, not just in my house. I tried to make all of the locations generic like an oven or a bedroom or a bathroom. And if you don’t have a bedroom or bathroom in your house, my apologies!
Each riddle leads the hunters to the next riddle in a specific location described on the card. Most of them are pretty easy, like where you would bake a pie (oven) but some are a little more complicated, like where you would put flowers. Those ones are up to you to determine where it goes! And it’s okay if the kids don’t get it right away, the running around the house is good for them!
The printable PDF has 12 different clue cards. They kind of go in order or are sort of tied together (e.g., I talk about taking a rest after the bed card) but you can totally skip one or five or whatever number of cards and they’ll still all work. I just like to make a longer scavenger hunt because my son loves them so much!
Along the Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt
There are two ways you can set this up. The first would be just to have some sort of surprise for everyone at the end, like I did with my football scavenger hunt for kids. They all got a football game to take home. Or you can do surprises along the way, like I did with my son’s dinosaur hunt. If I do surprises along the way, I like to do a mixture of small things – treats and gifts – and then a bigger surprise at the end.
I put together a list of some of my favorite things to include on these type of hunts for both kids and for him if you’re planning to do it for an adult!
