Setting up the Hunt

  1. Print and cut the clues out.
  2. Hide the clues according to this:
    1. Clue #1: This is the one the hunt starts with; you can leave it outside your kids’ bedrooms or just give it to them with breakfast.
    2. Clue #2: Outside, somewhere that’s easy to find.
    3. Clue #3: Underneath Springfree Trampoline
  3. Hide the pot of gold somewhere in your kitchen. The last clue leads your family back inside and tells them that the pot of gold is definitely in your kitchen, so feel free to put it in a good hiding place.
  4. Have fun with it! Read the clues in your best Leprechaun voice or add your own backstory for Lucky to take the experience to the next level of fun for your kids.

Oh no! Lucky the leprechaun has hidden a pot of gold in your backyard and forgot where he put it. It’s up to you and your family to help him out and find the pot of gold – Maybe he’ll even share it with you! Since there aren’t any rainbows around, lucky he has left a few clues that should lead you to the spot where he lost his treasure.



Clue #1:

I can’t remember where I left my pot of gold,

It might be in a place that’s hot or cold.

I think I left it surrounded by grass,

Hurry! Before it turns into a pot of brass.

Clue #2:

I think I remember, I think I know!

I hide it somewhere that’s really low.

It’s under where you like to bounce,

Just be careful that you don’t pounce

Clue #3:

Okay, I remember exactly where to look,

It’s hidden in the best room to cook.

Since you’ve looked so hard for my pot,

You can keep the treasure, the whole lot!
