Valentine Scavenger Hunt for Kids (Free Printable Clues!)

Valentine Scavenger Hunt for Kids (Free Printable!)

I’m so excited to finally share this Valentine Scavenger Hunt for Kids with you!   Scavenger Hunts are such a fun way to let your kids (or your sweetheart) know you’ve thought about them enough to hide a gift and lead them to it.   The hunt just builds the excitement and makes Valentine’s Day extra fun.

I had one of my older sons help me come up with these 12 cute clues, and we created this Free Valentine Scavenger Hunt Printable to make it easy.  All you have to do is print it, cut apart the clues, and hide them in the suggested hiding places.  Then place a little treat in the final hiding spot for your sweetheart to find!

Here’s what I’m leaving my boys this year – a barrel of monkeys (because they’re my little monkeys), a chocolate heart and a coupon for extra video game time :)

The first pages is for mom/dad’s eyes only – it’s a guide containing the numbered clues along with the place to hide each one. (See above)

The following two pages are hearts containing the 12 clues that you can cut out and hide.  (See example below)

This hunt is probably best suited for ages 5 – 12, with some easier ones and some more difficult ones that may require a little help.
