Treasure Run Review – Two weeks are left until the school year starts. We’re on the home stretch and we’ve been running full steam ahead, trying to make it a fun and exciting Summer for the kids. And I’ll be honest… It’s been great! But 12 weeks is a heck of a long time to try and keep the kids occupied.

So you can imagine my relief when I was contacted by Treasure Run. YES! An activity that would help me survive yet another day of Summer Vacation :)

Treasure Run was created by the father of 2, Ilan. In his quest to give children something exciting and adventurous to do. It’s a small, family-owned business. I really love the fact that it gets the kids outdoors, running around, and solving problems.

It is so easy to use: all you have to do is click a few buttons and “boom” your Treasure Map is created for you. Then hit print and all the clues are printed with a colorful theme. Kids can dress up and get really into it.

This is what you get. 

  1. All clues and puzzles are included.
  2. Your treasure hunt can be ready in 5 minutes.
  3. Up to 20 kids can play – with different colors for each team.
  4. 60 minutes of fun, education, and teamwork.
  5. The treasure hunt can be based around the home, park, or neighborhood (obviously you’ll need to pick a safe venue).
  6. 10 themes great for birthdays, Easter, Halloween, and Christmas.
  7. There is a choice of what puzzles you could use: i.e. Mirrored, hieroglyphics, etc.
  8. Your Treasure Hunts are saved, so you can go back at any time and make changes.

My FAVORITE part is: if you are a teacher, you can contact Ilan personally (via email) and receive FREE credits for a game that you can use for your class. Now that’s definitely giving back to the community!
