One of the nicest things you can do for your Dad on Father’s Day is make him feel appreciated, loved and special. What better way to do that than make him a fun scavenger hunt. With TextClues it’s easy to set up a great scavenger hunt for him to play by using his cell phone.
When setting up your own personal scavenger hunt think about your Dad’s interests and hobbies and jot down some notes of various questions you might use for the hunt, also decide whether you’ll use small gifts along the way, as he solves some of the clues, or just a special gift at the end of the hunt. For example, you could hide small gifts or notes under the bed, in the garage, in the shed or under the sofa etc. and send him text message clues to solve in order to find his gifts.
Pick the time you’d like your scavenger hunt to begin, here at TextClues you create your own custom scavenger hunt. You pick the day and time you’d like your hunt to start and at that time your first text message will be sent to him challenging him to accept his scavenger hunt. Then you can sit back and see how much fun he’ll have.
Your scavenger hunt could be set up a little like this, if your Dad is a sports fan,
