Thanksgiving is a great time of year. Along with pumpkin pie and fabulous turkey, it is a few days with the kids before the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season.

A fun event to keep them busy while you’re trying to cook is a treasure hunt. This one is for older kids. It is in riddle format and they have to fill in the blank to find the next clue. I have NOT numbered the clues. This is because there are a LOT of them….so I know you might not use them all. Mix and match; pick the ones you want! The first and last clue on the top of page 1. I’ve also included a page of blanks in case you want to fill in some of your own. Of course, while they will enjoy solving and chasing around, having a little treat at the end is always fun.

Here are some ideas:

Blanks. These are ones where you can write your own clues or riddles. The rest are fairly generic- aka, items you could find in most households. The blanks are for personal touches- a favorite book that you know the title to, a favorite shirt, etc.
