We recently published 4 scavenger hunt ideas you could use if you wanted to celebrate a wedding anniversary.
Here’s an additional idea – a collection of 10 scavenger hunt riddles based on different anniversary gifts.
These are a mix of both traditional and modern gifts and are perfect for organizing a romantic activity for your partner.
Here’s how to organize it:
- Post-it notes
- An item made of each type of material listed in the riddles
First, decide where you want to hide the actual anniversary gift for your partner and hide it there. The location will need to consist of 10 letters – it could therefore be something like ‘In bathroom’, ‘Beneath bed’, ‘On the shelf’ or ‘Dishwasher’.
Next, write each of the letters on a post-it note, attach one post-it to each of the 10 items made of an anniversary material (see below) and then place or hide them in random places around the house.
Make a note of the rooms you place each item in – that way you can let your partner know which room to go to in order to find each one. If possible, don’t place any of the items in the same room where you’ve hidden their actual gift in case they find it too early.
Finally, give your spouse each of the riddles. Once they’ve found all 10 items and post-its, let them know how many words the letters should make up and have them rearrange them in order to find their gift.
