Animal Treasure Hunt

I used this hunt for my son's 8th birthday party and it was a hit. I split the hunt in half and had 2 groups. I put a blue star on each clue from one group and a red star on each clue for the other group. This way, if the children were confused, they did not take a clue that belonged to the other team. I stressed to the children that each group had different clues so it was not a race. I taped the clues to the walls of 3 rooms upstairs, 3 rooms downstairs as well as the hallway. The kids had a lot of fun figuring out each animal and then finding it. At the end, the children had to count to make sure they had 15 clues and then put them in order.
