Hi Nikki

Thanks for your interest in our scavenger hunt.

We are a small group of trustees for a small Green that was saved from building land. It is now a small haven for wild life in the village of Soulbury in Buckinghamshire England.

We are always looking for fun events on the Green to make people aware that it is there and also to raise some funds for the upkeep of the place.

We love the idea of a scavenger hunt, using nature as our theme. I am reading through all the info you sent and ideas are forming.

I will let you know when we hold the event and how successful it is.

Many thanks

Nikki,

The reason I purchased the Treasure Hunt game was for use during our annual family vacation at a beach house in the Charleston SC area. The house we have rented for the week is directly on the beach and I am running a treasure hunt for our family.

Dear Nikki

I can’t tell you what a life saver you are. My Halloween invitations were all sent; advertising a Treasure Hunt and I became ill. I didn’t know how I was ever going to pull it off, but 2 days before the party I logged in (log in info in your purchase confirmation email) and within 1 hour I had edited

the clues you provided to fit our surroundings. I then mailed them to my office; printed, cut and separated. Trust me…now that I know how wonderful your made to order ”hunts’ are; we will be having them at every party. The kids and adults had a blast.

Please keep me informed of anything new, especially for adult parties.

Thanks again to my new party planning best friend!

Nikki,

I have been working on the Treasure Hunt all week, and I’m finishing the final touches on the map tonight.

I am going to have 18 children ages 5-10 years. We are having the hunt at our farm around a creek. I will set up the stations tomorrow. I am excited about using the mummy challenge. My son wanted to have all physical challenges so I put all the younger children in a group, all the girls in a group and split the boys into two groups. I think there will be less competition within the groups. Sometimes boys tend to get too competitive. I have chosen five other physical challenges including a multilegged race, a musical water glass, an egg race, a water balloon toss, the mummy challenge, and a water race.

I am going to hide a key for each team, which will open the treasure chest with their goody bags in them.

I have enough adults for each station. I think that will help.

The rest of the party includes a hotdog cookout, a hay ride, a hike in a really cool creek with caves, frogs, and lizards, and the treasure hunt, not to mention the cake and icecream and the presents. I hope it doesn’t get dark before we’re finished.

I used many good ideas from your ebook. I copied the station names onto yellow cardstock and laminated them. We will attach them to posts which are in place already.

Thanks for the great ideas.

Sincerely,

Shelley Grellner, Oklahoma USA

Hi,

I used your treasure hunt for my best friend’s 40th birthday party. I did not know most of the people that came; so, I was a little nervous about pulling the whole thing off. I purchased your delightfully easy-to-implement treasure hunt only about ten days before the party.

We all had so much fun! The guests were laughing constantly and couldn’t wait to reach the actual treasure. There were groups of her friends from all different backgrounds–many of whom who seemed reluctant to mix with the others. The treasure hunt was so wonderful that new friendships were formed, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses were exchanged, and my husband and I are enjoying a reputation for being the best party givers ever.

We received so many compliments, you just would be amazed. My friend for whom the party was given was at her office the next day; and, she said the people that had elected not to come were very disappointed when they heard how much fun everyone else had. One young lady upon leaving said to me that she would like to be invited to the next party I have. I had to laugh as I had never met her prior to my friend’s party.

It has been nearly a month; and, we are still the talk of the town so to speak. We live in one of those areas where everyone knows everyone else’s business whether they know you or not. I imagine you should be receiving a lot of hits from the folks in Salinas, California so they too can give the greatest party ever.

Not only did your program delight every single last party guest; but, it was easy for me to arrange as well. You have a remarkable product that will serve well for years as it is true quality. A rare find today! Thank you so very much.

Sincerely

We have tried out the game for my son’s 6th birthday. It was great! We had three teams of three or four kids and one adult each. I had mixed up the clues and starting points and they all lead to the same end point — a pirate treasure trunk filled with lots of treasures! The kid’s had so much fun. Some of them were readers and had fun reading the clues for the rest of the group. The hunt went from inside the house to outside around the yard, gardens, trees, fences, flower pots, wheel barrow, etc. The Instant Treasure Hunt Game was perfect in helping me with this party activity!

THANKS!

The treasure hunt party is for my daughters’ 13th birthday. It will be the night of October 8th. We are in the East Texas area, Chester to be exact. I plan on starting the party around 5:30 pm; I am hoping for cool weather; with E. Texas you never know. The party will be around our pool, and we have about 15 acres of lawn to use. Because it is her 13th, we are planning to bar-b-q, and of course the kids will swim (weather permitting). I am unsure of guest totals, the minimum will be about 30 kids, and 20 parents.

I would love to include some of the parents on the teams. Safely I figure there will be 42 players, and had considered making 7 teams.

Party was last Friday, boys had a blast! I cut and paste from your scavenger lists to make a great mall hunt! Funny to see 11 year old boys looking for sale items, washing hands in sink at Bath and Body Works, getting nails painted, etc…Thanks for your help!

Hi Nikki,

We celebrated our son’s eleventh birthday with a pirate themed party. Well, you can’t have a pirate party without a treasure hunt and we procrastinated a little too long. Your website helped us out tremendously.

We put together a 26 riddle treasure hunt that kept the children engaged and they had a great time searching for the treasure. And your step by step process made it very simple.

Thanks,

Nikki,

I purchased the Halloween game in addition to the treasure hunt. I am having a children’s Halloween party and maybe you could give me some pointers since you plan parties all the time. The agenda that I have come up with goes as follows:

Arrival 5:pm.

Upon entering the house each child will get a Halloween printed painter’s smock and flashlight.

Children will then go through the haunted house. (in the garage)

Once they come out of the haunted house they will go in to the living room which will be set up as a carnival, there will be different booths with different activities. These will include things such as, the fishing game (easier for the young kids), painting mini pumpkins and little wooden snakes, face painting, draw a pumpkin on a paper plate on your head, penny toss, we are still deciding on the others.

After they play and run around for a while visiting the different booths, getting little candies and toys to fill the pockets of their smocks.

Then it will be time to eat. (while the kids are eating, the Halloween game is being set up)

After they are done eating. The kids are split into their groups and the activity begins. They visit each station completing the activities. Once they have completed the activity they get a clue. (one of the cards from the treasure hunt game) once they have completed each station they will then fallow the clues on the cards they have received. At the end will be a treasure box hidden for each team.

The children then have the option to go though the haunted house a few times before the party ends.

I have never thrown a children’s Halloween party, so this will be fun. The ages range from 2 years to around 8 years of age. The majority of the children are between 5 and 8.

Hi Nikki,

What at wonderful resource your scavenger hunt e-book is. The hunt is tonight and I have already spent about three hours prepping with at least 3 more to do. It’s raining here so we are keeping game inside the house, on the porch and in the screen in porch too.

The boundaries, rules and age appropriate list were extremely helpful. Our group is ages 8-9 girls. There are 9 girls coming all of whom will be randomly divided into three groups of three. Unfortunately one of the babysitters cancelled last night so I’m now wrestling with three teams and two supervisors…..

Got to go, but I will f/u with news and feedback.. You are amazing to have the care and concern to email me.

I dearly appreciate it.

Thanks,

Nikki,

I was able to get several good ideas for my treasure hunt. I’m putting together a birthday party for my son and two nieces on the last weekend of January, (the 27th & 28th). My son turns 16 on the 20th, one niece turns 18 on the 23rd, and another niece turns 17 on the 26th. This party will consist mostly of teenagers, and their parents with a total group of about 35-40 people. My son and both nieces wanted to invite all their friends who have ATV’s, and play games that could involve ATV’s. We have a wooded area that consists of about 320 acres, and most attendees will be staying and camping on Saturday night. The treasure hunt seemed like a good idea.

Since most everyone participating will be riding an ATV, I wanted to limit the number of teams to only 3 or 4, with responsible adults leading each group. I need to emphasize that this is not a race because I don’t want anyone riding too fast and risk anyone getting injured. Also, only about 1/2 of those attending are familiar with our land. Some of those attending has never even been there before.

At this time, I’m thinking I will probably use GPS coordinates to direct each team from one location to the other. On our property, we have a small pond, we have 4 access gates (chain link), an old cabin with an old outhouse, and several deer hunting stands that would all make for good hiding places. By the way, our party is in East Texas.

Hello.

I read your book yesterday. I will being doing the Scavenger Hunt some time in July. I have until then to get it together. I am doing it for an age group of 12-17 both boys and girls. There should be approximately 6 girls and 6 boys. If invite another group it could potentially be more. For two years I had a neighborhood girls ministry. We use to do all kinds of things. That has been over for about 2 years. Recently I had a bible study for 12 year old boys in my home. That’s been over for a month or so. Both groups have asked me to have ’something’ for them this summer. They miss me, ahhhh. ha ha just kidding - they like being entertained. Anyway, both were bible study type deals in the past. The hunt doesn’t have to do with the bible BUT I am sending them a paper with some short scripture fill in the blanks…that will be their ticket to come to the hunt. I’m thinking about having it in our downtown area - we live a small community. We can be at the park and they will have access to the city building, library, post office, tennis courts, river front, businesses, restaurants, etc… They can work for a while - break for lunch - and go again. I think it will be the boys against the girls. I have a lot of ideas running through my head. I’m going to need to go back through your book and write things down this time. I still need to think about what they have to do, why, what the prizes are etc… Lots to do yet.

Thanks for taking the time to help.

Hey there,

Thanks for the follow up emails on the treasure hunt game. I’m using your party as a ’springboard’ for a bigger event… I’m integrating some cool coins, actual treasure, a cool map, and a cryptex, over 3 different birthday parties between August and December for 7-10 year olds (and helped by their parents)

I’ll let you know how it all goes! Thanks so much,

Nikki hi,

The Scavenger Hunt at Wal-Mart was very fun. I had my co-workers running from one end of the store to the other. The best thing.. I had them pushing each other in shopping carts outside in the Wal-Mart parking lot and video taping each other. We even had them take pictures with Wal-Mart employees.

They said the Scavenger Hunt was really fun and really appreciated the work that I put into this event.

Thanks,

Nikki -

We are planning a Scavenger Hunt Party for a bunch of 8th grade girls (14yrs old). 10-20 girls. The area will be around our neighborhood. We were thinking about having the girls take digital pictures of the things they need to find, or tasks they need to perform. Then setting up slide show of the pictures when they get back, so they can all have a laugh. Thanks.
