How to Setup your Scavenger Hunt

First, you will want to download the free Valentine’s Day Scavenger hunt printable below.

Then you will print them out and cut them apart.

Once cut, you will want to put the clues around your home according to the clue. (Don’t worry we give you the spots below!)

To spice it up you could add candy or trinket to each clue that they can collect as they do your Valentine’s Day Scavenger hunt!

At the end of the last clue, it instructs the player to turn around for their Valentine’s surprise. You could either stand behind them with a special gift or have it sitting behind the last clue!

This doesn’t have to be anything big.

Maybe a teddy bear for your kids, or a printable kids coupon book.

For your husband, maybe a new tie or a box of chocolates or maybe a love coupon book!
