Color Clues treasure hunts are being set up in a number of libraries right now. Librarians from the Madison Public Library helped develop clues that will work in almost any kids’ section, which means your local library could set up an engaging challenge for young readers and pre-readers in less than 10 minutes.
Free, quality programming
Get kids exploring all parts of your kids’ section
Engage your pre-readers with a literary puzzle they can solve all on their own
Challenge older kids with riddles, vocabulary words, and library skills like using your catalog
Use pre-made clues that will work in almost any kids’ section, allowing you to set up a full set of treasure hunts in less than 10 minutes
Create your own treasure hunts to highlight specific areas of your library, meet your own learning objectives, dovetail with existing programs, or just because you’ve thought up your own fun riddle
Have groups of kids solve treasure hunts together, or let parents play individually with their kids.
Free publicity for your library
Museums, Zoos, Stores, and more!
Museums, zoos, stores, and other private locations can also get in on the fun by creating treasure hunts within their facilities. This is an excellent way to engage your younger visitors. Get kids exploring all the corners of your space, and include valuable information within the clues as they go, targeting different age groups with age-appropriate details that are just right for them. You can use Color Clues like a self-guided tour program for kids, turning their visit into an exciting adventure. You’ll also draw new visitors who see your treasure hunt in the list of public hunts available near them.
