The Ultimate Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt!
This Valentine’s Day, add a little family fun with this unique activity that everyone can enjoy! We have everything you need to pull off a quick and easy scavenger hunt for your whole family!
Our Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt is unique. Not only are there several clues that will lead you to various places around the house, but there are challenging tasks that family members must complete before moving on to the next clue! Fun, right?
And with colorful designs by Karyn from the site If Actually, putting this activity together for your family is super easy! Just check out how fun these free printables are:
Start by adding these darling bag cover designs to the front of white lunch bags. You can print them off and adhere the design to the bag OR you can use the provided template to print these darling bag cover designs directly onto the white lunch bags.
You will want a total of 5 clue bags for this scavenger hunt!
Fill each bag with the activity description card and any printables or additional supplies that might be required for the game. These activities are the challenges the family must complete before reading their next clue.
Activities (and additional supplies needed) include:
- Love Struck – Cupid’s Target Game:
- Catch the Cootie Left/Right Game:
- Printables: Catch the Cootie Story
- Additional items needed: A prize that can passed around and eventually be given to the winner
- Heart Attack Stack:
- Printables: None needed
- Additional items needed: Conversation heart candy
- Love Match Memory Game:
- Printables: Memory game icons
- Additional items needed: Hershey Kiss chocolates
Now it is time to add the clues and hide the bags!
Take the six location clue cards and add one to the bottom of each bag. The only clue that will not be placed on a bag is the first note that explains the game & offers the first clue. It reads:
Love is in the air and there is no need to fear –
Cupid is busy spreading love this time of year!
He’ll show you the way with clue after clue
But before your next hint – a task you must do!…
The clue cards were created to send your family to places you would find in a typical home including:
- The Garage
- The Sink or Dishwasher
- A Bookshelf
- A Microwave
- The BBQ Grill
- The Shower
Place all the clue bags in the various locations around the home as indicated by the clues. With the exception of the first clue, which explains the game, it doesn’t matter what order you go in.
To finish it all off, place a special Valentine’s Day gift or treat at the very last location of your hunt. Top the gift off with this sweet gift tag.
When your family is ready to play, give them the first clue. When they find the clue bag – have them open the clue bag to reveal the activity. After completing the challenge, they can peak at the bottom of the bag to read their next clue.
