In this Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt, youth must find a series of valentine’s by following a set of clues. When they reach the final Valentine the youth will also find a very special Valentine Gift.

Buy a packet of inexpensive Valentines. These usually include a variety of simple valentines for youth and children to share with their school friends. If you want to have more than one hunt, you can different Valentine’s day cards in different themes or different colored envelopes and hide more than one set of cards. (i.e. great for more than one youth or teams of youth)


  1. If you have more than one set of Valentine’s cards be sure the different themes are easily distinguishable from each other or indicate different teams with a different colored envelopes.
  2. Write a different love note on each valentine card (ten to 15 cards). You can also write one word per card and number them to form a single message of love.
  3. Hide the Valentine cards throughout the house or in other suitable places. As you hide each card, write a clue on the outside of the card to direct the youth to the next hidden card. These can be simple clues or riddles.
  4. Along with the last Valentine, include a small love gift like a box of chocolates, etc.


An important Rule
If you are hiding more than one set of Valentine’s day card, be sure to tell the youth that they may only touch their own cards. They may not take cards that belong to another team if they happen to find them.

What to do

  1. Divide everyone into two or more groups and give them a time limit with which to find the Valentine’s Day cards.
  2. Give the kids the clue to the first valentine and let them search until they have found all of them. Remember to tell them there is something special hidden with the last Valentine.
  3. The first group that returns with the all the cards AND the final gift within the limited time wins.
