Hard treasure hunt puzzles

Does your family love the thrill of a good scavenger hunt as much as ours? Good. So, he reads on as I’d like to share with you some of the dynamics we’ve found regarding writing hard scavenger hunt riddles.

First of all, we know that we need to find a balance between writing difficult tracks and writing tracks that are too easy. A good part of the fun of hunting is figuring out and figuring out the clue, but if they’re too difficult, you lose the thrill of victory. This can be especially difficult for younger children, as we strive to teach them both problem solving and rewards.

With my seven-year-old daughter, I find paying attention to what she’s learning in school can be a valuable tool. I base some of the puzzles on their current syllabus. For example, right now they are learning about the ocean and the various creatures that inhabit it. So if we have a ceramic sea turtle in our front yard, you could “hit” it with this: “I’m an amphibian and I walk on legs. But unless I’m in a race, I just don’t talk.” .” The reference here is, of course, the old story of the tortoise and the hare. Or tortoise… however that works, you get the idea.

If you have a child in, say, eighth grade, you may want to apply some of the tracks to the music they listen to. By the time they are around 14 we tend to see an increase in individuality and often this comes in the form of music. One idea might be to find a verse in one of their favorite artists’ songs and put part of it down on paper, making them stop and start a bit. It may not make sense to them for you to put this on paper, so they may not be able to make that connection right away. And it might be a nice way for the two of you to bond a bit at this difficult age!
