#3 Arrgh Treasure Hunt

Cheap as $10

Medium Prep

Day or arvo

Start by tea dying some paper to make a map or download the printable map pack. Here’s a step-by-step guide.

When you have your map it’s time to stash the loot (small present or picnic). Head out a few hours before the hunt begins and hide the treasure out of sight. It’s pretty important that your map guides to this spot…

When you’re on the date simply give subtle clues like ‘warmer/cooler’ rather than telling them where to go. A huge amount of the fun on this date is solving the clues and getting to the reward at the end.
