About The Product we received:

We were able to play with the Multiplication Dragon set and the Halloween Printable Set.

The Halloween Printable Treasure Hunt ($5.99).  This treasure hunt has 12 premade clues that either have activities such as howling at the moon or saying Boo after each sentence for so long, as well as worksheet type activities, like riddles and puzzles.  All of the activities were Halloween themed of course!  An instruction sheet and answer key is also included.

The Multiplication Dragon Printable Treasure Hunt ($19.99) Actually comes with 5 separate hunts; 2X- 6X.

Each hunt came with 12 clues that varied between math problems, riddles and puzzles. There is an instruction sheet and an answer sheet included as well.  

A day/week in our life:

Scavenger Hunts are nothing new to my kids.  We often do them for them to find their birthday presents.  They were pretty excited to complete these.  Each hunt says 8 minute prep, but my teens enjoyed putting the clues out for my 9 year old, and helping her with the treasure hunts if she needed it.  So I really didn’t have to do much!  I had her do one each week as a reward for completing her schoolwork.  (How fun that I could use something educational as a reward!) The prizes that I provided ranged from a sticker sheet to a candy bar to nothing.

Our thoughts and feelings:

Overall we loved these hunts.

I like that the clues were pre thought out and they were puzzles and riddles to solve.

One thing is that I had to be pretty creative for a few of the areas we were supposed to hide them.  For instance, the prize for one was supposed to be hidden in our mailbox.  Our mailbox is clear down the street and I didn’t want her going down there.  So we hid the clue with her shoes so she would see it when she got ready to go to the mailbox.  She does have a suggestion that you just have the kids to some type of physical activity, like jumping jacks, to earn the next clue if you have a hard time hiding it where they suggest.

For some hunts our answer sheet didn’t always match up, but it wasn’t really a big deal as each clue has the place to put it on the bottom. 

While they are PDF files, so you could reuse them, I found that my daughter would memorize the order of where they were hid.  I think after a few months we will get them out again when she has forgotten where the clues go. 

The Halloween one we will be using as an activity at our Homeschool Halloween Party.  So even though she knows where the clues go, they will be in different places than they were at our home. 

My kids love treasure hunts and I love the ease of use!
