What is Color clues?

Color Clues is a treasure hunt that uses audio recordings rather than written clues. This is an excellent way to stoke the imagination of young children who cannot yet read, and also enchants older kids who delight in the verbal clues and the challenge of the hunt.

You can easily design your own treasure hunts, customizing them for your children and your house, or draw from a database of treasure hunts with pre-made clues that will fit most homes.

The hunt starts by giving your kid the first code – a sequence of 4 primary colors – and a smart phone running the Color Clues app, displaying big boxes of primary colors. Tapping the code into the phone triggers the first audio clue. One clue leads to another until the final destination is reached: a hidden gift or a surprise or simply a congratulations for completing the hunt.

Treasure hunts can be uploaded to an online database, where other users can download and use those hunts themselves. Our community of treasure hunters will have access to an ever-growing set of treasure hunts, created by imaginative people all over the world.

Color Clues has just launched a beta test.  If you’d like to participate, please fill out the form here.
