Valentine Surprise String Hunt
So what better way to start things off than with a string hunt?! Simply wind string or baker’s twine throughout your home—the crazier the better! Thread it through your banister, chair rails, anywhere you can think of… until you’ve created a super crazy obstacle course of sorts for your spouse to follow. Affix the surprise note at the beginning of the string so they know exactly what to do—follow it!
Assembling Your Valentine Surprise Bags
At the end of the string maze, you’ll want to place the three brown paper packages (tied up with string!). Keep reading below for some super easy assembly instructions.
- We always recommend printing on cardstock and this time is no different! Print, cut, and affix each of the bag covers to their own individual lunch bags. Nothing fancy needed here, ordinary brown paper lunch bags will do the trick!
- Each bag cover has a coordinating gift tag. Affix those tags to each of the bags using string or baker’s twine.
- Fill your surprise bags with the cute Valentine’s Day gifts or treats of your choosing. Candy, small articles of clothing (something like socks or lingerie) or fragrances make for some great Valentine’s Day ideas that will fit perfectly!
- Arrange the bags at the end of the hunt, lining them up so their tags read: “Brown paper packages, tied up with string. Here are a few of your favorite things!”
- Wait for your sweetheart to complete their Valentine surprise hunt, find their treasures and enjoy!
What did we tell you?! Show just how ‘tied’ to your spouse you are with this Valentine surprise they’ll LOVE.
