Hunting For Hearts
If there’s one thing I know about Faye, it’s that she LOVES scavenger hunts. When she learned about Easter egg hunts, it was all she wanted to do for months and months. She loves hiding things for me to find and vice versa, she is just obsessed! While looking for Valentine’s Day activities on Pinterest I found a bunch of scavenger hunts for kids that I wanted to share with you. Although Valentine’s Day has passed, we’re still in the month of love! I decided to create a scavenger hunt for Faye, knowing it would make her little heart so happy. It’s pretty simple to set up and if your child is anything like her it will keep them entertained for AWHILE.
To create the scavenger hunt, I took construction paper and cut out a bunch of hearts. I cut out different sizes and colors. Then, I hid them around the house. Once all the hearts had been placed around the house, Faye took her basket and went on her hunt! Once she found all of the hearts, we switched and she hid them for me to find. She had a BLAST and did not want to quit playing. It was such a fun time for us to bond with one another while getting in the Valentine’s Day spirit.
Faye is only 4 years old and cannot read BUT, if you have older children that can read, you could write little love notes on the hearts for them to read. Another cute idea is to make the scavenger hunt using clues. For example, on the first heart write “The next heart is going to be in the room you find food to eat” and then on the second heart write a clue for the third heart and so on. Of course, if you do this, you will need to make sure they read and find the hearts in order.
We hope you and your little one(s) enjoy this fun game! We would love to see pictures of your kiddos playing, upload them using the hashtag #KidsNightInBox
