Treasure Hunt

One of the main perks of a treasure hunt is, if the kids are old enough, you can just sit down with a coffee while they look! Pick a small toy as the treasure, we love the Maileg matchbox mice or Meri Meri suitcase dolls for this, and hide clues around the house! The bonus is that after they've finished the hunt, they can play with their prize, making time for another cuppa.
