A successful treasure hunt - ideas and templates for laid-back preparations
Let the treasure hunt begin!
As with any other (motto-)children's birthday party, we recommend the HABA Children's Birthday Checklist. You should design and distribute the invitations 2 or 3 weeks before the birthday. Use the HABA Find the Code template for invitations to children's birthday party - either with a pirate motif or in fantasy style:
Luckily the treasure hunt can start with "Find the Code" in all weather: if it is raining, cloudy or cold, it can be played inside - and, even better, if the weather is nice outside, e.g. as a photo treasure hunt. Depending on the effort involved, it might be a good idea to involve good friends or family members in organizing the event. The basic steps for preparing the treasure hunt are always the same. These are described in the instruction booklet:
- Select the puzzle card
- Set the right number code in the padlock
- Fill up the treasure chest, for example, with small HABA cards, tins or souvenir games, dolls from the HABA Little Friends series as well as accessories from the HABA shop series, gifts, Terra Kids or small, sweet treats of gummi bears and chocolate (gold coins are particularly popular')
You will find further suggestions under treasures and little gifts for large and small treasure hunters.
- Lock the treasure chest with the combination lock
