What is more fun for a kid then going on a hunt to find “treasures”? This is a super fun scavenger hunt tailored for Valentine’s day. It is great because it serves as a fun activity but you can also use the items you hide as your child’s Valentine’s Day gift and/or items for a super cute Valentine’s Day sensory bin ( I will be posting about ours tomorrow).
What you’ll need for this activity is various Valentine’s or heart shaped goodies.
Here is a list of what I used which were all purchased at the dollar store:
- A cute Valentine’s day box with lid ( I put a little stuffed animal inside)
- Heart shaped plastic bracelets
- Small puffed balloon
- Small glitter heart shapes
- Heart decorative wire
First I hid all the items around the house. You can make this more difficult depending on your child’s age. For my young toddler I made it really easy and obvious.
First she found the box with the stuffed animal in it.
Then she found the bracelets. She loves jewelry, so she was so happy to find them.
Then she found the wire and heart shapes
She loved the scavenger hunt and had a blast playing with her items. Afterwards I put together a fun sensory bin which I will be sharing on the blog tomorrow, so be sure to check back!
What are your Valentine’s Day traditions with your kids?
