Treasure Hunt

The other day, my daughter had a friend over to play and they were in need of an activity.  So, I decided to pick up some toys and hide them around our home for the girls to find on a treasure hunt.  To my surprise, they loved searching and finding all the hidden toys! They kept asking me hide all the toys again and again.  (We made a map too, but they weren't that interested in that part of the hunt).
