Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt Riddles

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 scavenger hunt 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.
