Every year at Easter we have, besides the egg hunt, a treasure hunt with a trail of about a dozen clues. This is intended for the older kids, but the little ones follow along. It is not easy to write clues that they won't guess immediately but will be able to figure out in a reasonable time; Mary especially gets half of them right away, even some that I think will be hard. I always spread the clues out across the house and yard, to keep them moving around, and I put in some treasure maps as well as other sorts of clues. Here the whole gang tries to follow a treasure map to Ye Hiding Place of the next clue.
