In my quest to make learning to read fun this week we have embarked on many a treasure hunt where Z has had to read instructions from post it notes around the house.
The prize being chocolate coins, which my kids will do pretty much anything for.
We even had some fun treasure hunting outside, with instructions such as ‘find 3 pinecones’.
I’ve been hiding notes in lunch boxes too.
Z doesn’t even realise he is reading when we play games like this, I need to bulk buy post-it notes now though.
Oh Emma you are too cute! And very creative- what a lovely idea! x
Oh well done! *applauds creativity* That’s really good work missus, and noted for future reference (in pinterest)

Aaaah how sweet! I love love love it. Isn’t it funny how well kids do when they don’t think they are learning.
Thank you for sharing on Kids Get Crafty!
That’s a fun idea. We’ve been hiding words around the house for my 4 year old to see. She get really excited when she can read them.
Another genius idea and mine too are obsessed with chocolate coins. Going to have to wait until next christmas to get some more. x
Thanks lovely. xx
