My daughters had so much fun searching the house and finding each of the secret messages inside. I made sure to tell her how many there were when we started and that I had enough candies split between them so that when she got to the last one she could create her secret message on the large paper.
Once your collect all the hearts and messages use those fine motor skills and place onto the paper to find your secret code. This smile to TOTALLY worth the effort of playing this game again and again!
Guess who joined in the fun as we search and searched all week long! Little Sister! My daughter even started creating her own little love message for my husband and I to find. What a special treat to have little love notes left all over for you to find.
Happy Valentine’s Day from The Educators’ Spin On It.

Aww, that is just too cute for words! Doing a scavenger hunt for Valentine’s Day is a nifty and sweet idea. Scavenger hunts like this is a good way to bond with your family as well. Next weekend, I’ll try and set an evening scavenger hunt with glow sticks to add some difficulty.
