My kids LOVE treasure hunts and I love how much they work together when they do one. I’ve created an Easter and Christmas treasure hunt in the past and they’ve been huge hits with my kids. This is why I created this fun Valentine’s Day treasure hunt.

The clues on this hunt are fairly simple so even your toddlers can play! Each clue leads your kids to an indoor item found in most households such as a freezer, hamper, picture frame and more!

Your kids are sure to have a blast following these Valentine’s Day treasure hunt clues to a fun Valentine’s Day treat!

The first step is to download the free printable treasure hunt clues at the bottom of this post. Then, cut out each individual clue.

To make things easier for yourself, it can be helpful to number them on the back as you cut them out. The order goes top left, top right, then down continuing to go left to right.

The only ones that really need to go in specific order are the first two otherwise they can go in whatever order you choose.

Numbering is also helpful for your kids so they can ensure they’ve found the right card because some cards may be in the same room.

After you have numbered all of the clues, set aside the first one. This one you won’t hide. Instead, give this one to your kids to start their treasure hunt.

This next step is optional but if you’d like you can roll up the clue and tie some ribbon around it. If you choose to do this, write the number on the clue AFTER you’ve rolled and tied it so you know where to hide the clue.

Treasure Hunt Setup

To hide the clues, start with the 2nd clue. This clue will be hidden in the riddle’s location of the first clue (the couch).

Basically, whichever clue you are hiding you place it in the location from the previous clue. For example, the third clue will go in the location from the second clue, the fourth clue will go in the location from the third clue etc. You keep doing this pattern until you get to the last clue.

Some of the locations you will need to tape the clue up like on a mirror. It can be fun to use some Valentine’s Washi Tape like this.

The last card says “You’ve followed the clues now isn’t that neat? Go look on your bed for your Valentine’s Day treat!” You would then place whatever gift or treat you have for your child on their bed. You’ll probably want to put it under their covers so they don’t see it when they are getting other clues in their room. 

I chose a bed as a last location so that if you have multiple children they can do the treasure hunt together but then they each can get their own gift/prize.

* To make life easier I recommend pulling up this post when you go to hide the clues. That way, you can see the location of the clues and the order listed out below.
