Fun Valentine Scavenger Hunt for Kids
I like to find ways to make holidays and, well, everyday life a little more fun for our kiddo. Adding in some excitement for Valentine’s Day is on my list this year, and I think this scavenger hunt is a cute and simple way to start the day.
Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite holidays, probably because it’s the day before my birthday. But even though we don’t do anything elaborate (no flowers here, thanks to a curious cat), we still like to make it fun for our son. I like seeing his surprised expression way more than getting anything for myself! This year, I will use this printable scavenger hunt to make the day a little more fun and challenging.
Here’s what I plan to do with it:
- With some of the checklist items, I plan to have tangible items scattered for him to find throughout the house—for example, cookies, the teddy bear, candy, balloons, chocolates, etc.
- For others, I’ll print out pictures. For example, a picture of a friend, cupid, a pair of lips, etc., will be printed on paper or cardstock and taped to the wall or hidden somewhere for him to find and check off.
However, if you have more than one child, this can be a real hoot! Set a timer to make it a little more challenging for older kids. Or let the littles race to see who can check off the most items the fastest.
Of course, if you don’t want them to compete, encourage them to work together to find everything on the checklist! It would be a great opportunity to encourage them to share and trade with each other for the items they like.
To make this Valentine Scavenger Hunt for Kids more fun, let them check off their lists with some cute Valentine pencils and pens! Here are some we love from Amazon (affiliate links below):
