For Delaney’s recent birthday, we put together a simple birthday present treasure hunt. I knew she would adore the idea of following clues and hunting for her hidden presents (and she did!).
We wrapped seven gifts, one for each year. I made a starting clue, plus clues on each present to continue the hunt.
Here are our clues, in case you’re interested:
Happy 7th Birthday Delaney! 7 gifts wait for you – #1 is by a shoe. (shoe shelf)
#2 might like to read. Bins of books are what it needs. (library book bin)
For #3, look high and low. Go to where the water flows. (bathtub)
#4 is feeling quite chilly. Its hiding place is very silly! (freezer)
Oh #5, where can you be? Somewhere soft and very cozy. (mom & dad’s bed)
I know how to find #6. Look for something we use to mix. (utensil drawer)
#7 – we’re at the end. Look around your animal friends. (stuffed animal bin)
The freezer one was definitely her favorite!
Delaney chose to find all her presents first, then open them. I loved how the treasure hunt made the present-opening fun last a little longer!
Do you have any birthday present traditions to share?
