This year our family reunion was at a lake. At the end of a fun day of playing in the water, my daughter, Callee did a darling activity with the young kids. It was a treasure hunt. She had 5 stations. Each station had a different activity to be completed to get the clue to the next station. At each station there was an adult to supervise.
Station 1 – make a picture using tiny shell & rocks ( while the kids were doing this, Callee was burying the treasure with an “X“ on top)
Station 2 – listen to a story (picture book about a family reunion)
Station 3 – act out scenes from Star Wars ( all the kids love the Star Wars movies)
Station 4 – using white crepe paper or toilet paper, wrap up someone to look like a mummy
Station 5 – sing 3 songs
The clue from station 5 is to find an “X”. The treasure is buried in a plastic container with an “X”on top.
The kids loved it and stayed engaged because they wanted the treasure.
Callee has done this activity at home with her boys and included cleaning chores as some of the activities. It’s great for a rainy day.
