Treasure Hunt Ideas

Outdoor Obstacal Course

Treasure hunters must complete an obstacal course to win the next clue.

Obstacles could include:

  • “Laser beams” – push garden canes into the ground and tie string between them to create laser beams the hunters must not touch as they cross through
  • A tunnel (a ready made one or hoola hoops)
  • Over-under – use garden canes to create low “hurdles” hunters must go under or higher “hurdles” they must jump.
  • Hopscotch – chalk out hopscotch area
  • Play equipment – incorporate a garden slide or climbing frame if you have one
  • Bike/scooter sprint – a section of the course that must be navigated on wheels
