We absolutely love having treasure hunts, especially for birthdays.

These free birthday present scavenger hunt clues for kids are super easy to have fun with.

You can either leave a birthday gift with every clue, or you can leave the birthday treats with the last clue. It is totally up to you.

We have done it both ways and the only thing we have done the same, is all of the gifts are opened at the end of the treasure hunt.

This printable birthday party scavenger hunt is free to print but is for personal use or classroom use only. Scroll to the bottom of the post to get the pdf file.

Print out the clues. They look better if you print in color, but black and white will still look great.

The clues will look better printed on cardstock (this is the one we use), but, normal copy paper will work perfectly.

Cut out the 12 clues.

I have purposely kept the clues big, but of course, you can fold them if they need to fit in somewhere small. (I actually prefer a paper cutter as I don’t have a very steady hand.)

Grab a pen so you can mark off where you have left the clues and in what order! Trust me from experience, you should do this!

I have purposely not numbered these birthday-themed scavenger hunt clues, as I don’t know the layout of your house! But all clues can be hidden inside every home.

This scavenger hunt will be great to play at a birthday party too, just get the kids to work in teams.
