During the Halloween holiday season, sneak in a little reading and rhyming with a free printable Halloween Treasure Hunt.
Help younger kids with the reading and rhyming or modification of the clues.
Want to write your own? Scroll down to find directions for step-by-step treasure hunt creation. It’s easier than you might think. And so much fun!
My kids know that we do silly prizes for the most part. So they expect weird prizes like one bandaid or ten paper clips. Something silly and cheap works for us.

Make Your Own Printable Treasure Hunt
1. Open up a word processing program. Write out the answers to where your kids will find each clue. For example, piano, sink, shoes, or closet.
2. Go to Rhyme Zone. Enter each of the treasure hunt answers in order to find rhyming words that would work in a clue for that answer.
3. Use those rhyming words to write a two-sentence clue on a new page of your document.
The first sentence in a clue will end with the word that rhymes with your answer.
This next sentence answer will end with the answer but leave it blank.
Halloween night is filled with gloom.
Here comes a witch, on her ______.
5. If you want to make your clues fancy, add in clip art using Microsoft Office’s free choices.
6. Print out your treasure hunt clues, then hide the clues in order. I like to add #1, #2, #3 on the clues for my own organization. And don’t forget to keep track of the answers so you know where to hide everything.
7. Have fun!
