Family Night Treasure Hunt


Hide your family home evening treat. Then draw a map showing where it is hidden. Mount the map on a piece of cardboard, cut it into 15 puzzle pieces, and put them into an envelope or sack. During family home evening, take turns answering the questions from the Treasure Hunt Questionnaire on the next page. Let your family members look up the scripture references to check or find the answers. When someone answers a question correctly, have that person select a puzzle piece. After all the questions have been answered correctly, put the puzzle together and find the treat!
