Who’s ready for Father’s Day? I am always so last minute with Father’s Day….But, this year, I’ve got both me and you covered with a fun-filled Father’s Day Pirate Treasure Hunt. Dad is going to love it!
There’s fun printable pirate clues for the kids to hide and send Dad around the house looking for yummy treats and snacks and prizes for his big day. Some of those yummy treats are the new OREO Cookies & Crème Chocolate King Size Bar.
Have you tried them yet? Each one is full of OREO cookie pieces and Milka white chocolate candy which come together to create this amazingly delicious candy bar. It’s rich, creamy, and so delicious!
Making the Treasure Box
First, you’ll need to print out the clues and then cut them into individual clues. When it’s time to hide them, I put them in order and put the place they are to be hidden on the back like “bathroom” or “mailbox.” Then, the kids and I follow the path of the treasure hunt and hide the clues. We just set some down, and we also tape some or attach them to strings.
You can use anything like a small plastic tote to a cardboard box. I found this dark cloth bucket and thought it would be perfect. Then, I let the kids decorate it.
My oldest made a jolly roger on the front of it using paint pens.
Then the younger ones decorates it with rhinestone stickers for a “treasure” look.
Here’s what I like to include in his “treasure box”
- 2 OREO Cookies & Crème Chocolate King Size Bars
- Orange soda
- Beef jerky
- Trail Mix
- Gift Cards for his favorite activities
Now you can make this pirate treasure hunt a little easier or a little harder by putting a prize with a clue every so often to entice Dad to keep searching. Sometimes I’ll tape a clue to a prize, but other times I make them work for it.
My husband is very clever and loves figuring out clues, so we are making our pirate treasure hunt for him as hard as we can. He’s not getting any prizes along the way. His treasure will be all together in his pirate treasure basket.
