The motivation behind Clued in Kids is to provide a fun and healthy way to educate our children while being reminded that life is a journey to treasure. Mission accomplished! Our family loves opportunities to share fun times with each other as well as other homeschool families. This year we are gathering together once per month to share activities relevant to our current course of study with a nearby family traveling a similar course. This month the gathering was at our home, and I was excited to tie in our Gluten-Free Treasure Hunt as well as our Soccer Treasure Hunt with our current studies in human biology. I'm sure my three would have enjoyed the hunt on their own, but some things are are even more fun when shared with friends.
Our afternoon together went like this:
1 - Explain and execute Soccer Treasure Hunt.
2 - Make articulated hand. (I'll share more on this another time.)
3 - Explain and execute Gluten-Free Treasure Hunt.
5 - Snack and Free Time.
6 - Dinner

The Clued in Kids website offers an abundance of treasure hunts on various topics including health, holidays, sports, and education related subjects. Middle and high school level hunts are in the works. You can even use their Puzzlemaker to create your own customized treasure hunts! One feature that I really like is that you can purchase a treasure hunt in a greeting card. Oh, the possibilities! We are currently waiting for our 13th grandbaby to enter this world. With raising three young ones of our own it is very challenging to be an involved Nana and Papa. This is a wonderful way for me to be able to send a little love and fun through the mail to our grands. I am very excited about doing that in the future. Here is a video demonstrating the process of the treasure hunt:

It was fun gathering together and being able to provide enriching activities for the children in such an easy fashion. I wish I could download, print, and prepare all of the activities in my life in under 10 minutes. Now, that would be the day! (Maybe my house would actually stay clean.) You can purchase your own treasure hunt download for $5.99 and instantly provide a fun and enriching activity for your children. Sign up for their newsletter and receive a FREE treasure hunt!
