Looking for a super cute Valentine’s scavenger hunt for kids?
We do scavenger hunts big time in our house.
My 7 year old just made one for her older sister yesterday, actually.
But she wanted my help.
And sadly our printer was out of ink, or else I DEFINITELY would have printed one out for her.
Coming up with cute rhymes on the spot is not the easiest task.
I love these specific Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt clues because there is a mix of simple and more challenging clues.
This activity is the perfect way to provide a fun surprise fo younger kids or older kids, too!
Read on for how to set up this fun activity for February 14th or any day in the month of February!
It could be completed by kids of all ages.
