Pro Tip: To make the hunt more difficult for older kids, get creative with your hiding spots! Hide the cards under and inside objects instead of in plain sight.

3. Next, give your child (or children) the first card. Then, watch as they scurry through the house in excitement. Give hints if needed!

4. I hid a frozen treat with a few coins in a small treasure box for my kids’ hunt prize. But anything goes!
