Kids big and small love searching for treasure. There’s something about following the clues, one by one, anticipation building as they get closer to “X.” You might not have the time or desire to dig a hole in the yard, but that doesn’t mean your kids can’t go on an adventure right now. An iMOM scavenger hunt is fun, a little bit silly, and no shovel is required!  We have a scavenger hunt for each of the big holidays, which is perfect for keeping the kids occupied so you can get some of the to-do list done. And our any-day scavenger hunts are handy for sleepovers or when rain sidelines your outdoor plans. If you don’t have a prize for the end of the hunt, don’t stress. A piece of candy or a love note will leave your hunter beaming! And don’t tell the kids, but these scavenger hunts will help them work on their reading and problem-solving skills. Talk about buried treasure! Mom win!
