St. Patrick’s Day Scavenger Hunt

 

St Patricks Day Scavenger Hunt

 

Get the kids excited for St. Patrick’s Day with this fun leprechaun treasure hunt! Follow the leprechaun’s clues that lead to places all around the house. At the end, the kids will be rewarded with his pot of gold.

 

This design includes ten ready-to-print clues. Follow these steps to use the print and cut feature:

  • Select Registration Marks
  • Select Type 1 in the Style menu
  • Place the design within the red cut border and avoid the greyed area.
  • Print the clues onto white sticker paper.
  • Once printed, cut the design with the Silhouette CAMEO/Portrait.

 

Scavenger Hunt

A cardstock backing is now needed for each clue.

  • With the rectangle tool, create a backing that is slightly larger than the clue.
  • Center each clue number on the backing (I used the LW Stencil font).
  • Cut the backings out of cardstock with the Silhouette CAMEO/Portrait.
  • Place the printed clue on the reverse side of the cardstock.
  • Add glitter to the exposed adhesive to create the sparkly numbers.

Once the clues are solved, the leprechaun’s treasure will be located. I thought that this pot of gold was the perfect design to use because it is quick and easy to assemble. For an added touch, I adhered a “Happy St. Patrick’s Day” saying to the front of the pot and then wrapped a thin wired rope around the pot.

 

For the “Happy St. Patrick’s Day” saying:

  • Use adhesive kraft paper as the base and place double-sided adhesive on top of it.
  • Center the black offset onto the double-sided adhesive.
  • Adhere the saying on top of the offset.
  • Sprinkle gold glitter to the exposed double-sided adhesive and green glitter to the shamrocks.

I can’t say that I’ve looked forward to St. Patrick’s Day before, but now that I have my scavenger hunt ready to go I can’t wait to send my kids on a hunt to find their special treasure. Thanks for checking out my post today and have a great weekend.

 

Child’s Art Apron

Getting crafty with kids is such a blast! The only part I’m not crazy about is the cleanup. My son gets really into it so we always end up with a mess on his clothes. I picked up this plain child sized apron when I was browsing the aisles of the craft store. With some blue heat transfer mat... [Read More...]

  When it comes to my quilting fabric, I am one very picky lady. I always have this idea of how I want something to look and then I go searching out the fabrics. Lately my ideas aren’t fitting very well with the fabric available, so I decided to go the next step and just make my own de... [Read More...]

    I always seem to find little home items that could use a little pick-me-up with vinyl. That was what happened with a jar candle on my kitchen counter.   I started with a sentiment, and this week’s free design from the Silhouette Design Store.   After measuring and cu... [Read More...]

    I  have had this big blank piece of wood for some time now and I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it exactly.  Then the kids were talking about board games the other day and I realized we didn’t own checkers and I didn’t think they knew how to play. Instead o... [Read More...]
