Clued in Kids: Halloween and Multiplication Dragons Treasure Hunts ~ a TOS review

PicMonkey Collage

My girls are big fans of scavenger or treasure hunts! We have one every year as we start our new school year and it is always the highlight of the day. So you can bet I jumped at the chance to review two scavenger hunts, Halloween Treasure Hunt and Multiplication Dragons from Clued in Kids.

Clued In KidsReview

Clued in Kids was launched in November 2013 as both a dream come true and also as an escape from the realities of dealing with an autoimmune disease for the author, Helen Bertelli and her eight year old daughter. Their family were truly on a treasure hunt as they searched for a cure.

We received PDF files for the treasure hunts and they are simple and easy to set up. In fact it only takes 8 minutes!  Simply print the clues in either color or back and white, cut the clues apart on the dotted line, and hide them according to the included instructions at the bottom of each clue. The hunts we received are geared towards children aged 4 and up. Easy peasy!

Halloween Treasure Hunt ~  retails for just $5.99 and will have your kids saying Trick or Treasure!!!  With riddles and simple yet fun activities your child will be screaming for more. This hunt can help build up excitement for the day and provides an hour of fun for 1-10 kids.

Multiplication Dragons ~ includes five printable, teaching treasure hunts that will motivate your 7-9 year old {or older child still mastering multiplication facts} to learn their times-tables!  With fun puzzles, activities, and riddles it will not seem like doing math as your child goes on a multiplication adventure around your home. This set retails for $19.99.

cik4   Since these treasure hunts were so simple and easy to set up it was a win-win for our family. My girls Madison {13}, Mikayla {11}, Montana {8}, and McKenzie {5} all participated in the treasure hunts we received. Marie {17} helped me set up the clues. They were so happy when I told them we were selected for these treasure hunts. They immediately wanted to know what the prize was. Initially they scoffed at my reply of “knowledge” for the Multiplication Dragons, but had so much fun solidifying the math facts that it did not seem like learning that much.

Overall, we all have really enjoyed these hunts and look forward to adding more into our school year, especially the Slumber Party one as we have some birthdays coming up. I can’t recommend these enough, especially if you are looking for low teacher/parent prep but quality material!

we don't get our pumpkins until Halloween, so we improvised :)
