Christmas Weekend Treasure Hunt

Each year we do a treasure hunt. William works hard on clues and maps. He had Maggie's hubby Brannon helping this year. I get the small treasures together for each clue spot. There are 3 teams and each team is assigned a color. They can only open the clues at the flag with their color ribbon tied on it. After each team has gathered all their clues and small treasures they have to put their clues with the other teams to figure out where the big treasure is. We work together on what goes in the big treasure chest at the end of the hunt. This year they each got a leather pirate pouch with money. They all were very happy!

What a wonderful idea. I think I'll have to write a post about this and link back to you. That is just so cool, and a great way to get the kids excited.
