This dinosaur treasure hunt is an inexpensive way for kids to enjoy a dino-themed activity at home on a rainy day.
You may be familiar with a dinosaur scavenger hunt where kids have to find specific things or study a treasure map of the backyard. However, as the kids get older, the hunts are completed in next to no time. Older kids need a game more suited to their skill set. This treasure hunt is the perfect way to do that.
Instead of having to make your own scavenger hunt or treasure hunt (which would take ages), you can get this ready-made treasure hunt to use at home.
