Continuing the theme of Father’s Day, here are some more ideas for scavenger hunts for dad on his special day. With Textclues set up your clues ahead of time, make sure he’s got his cell phone and sit back and watch the fun.
Give him clues that lead him all over the house and plant a few outside too. Each clue should lead him to the answer, and at the end of the hunt you could have a gift bag with his cards & gifts inside. Here are some ideas using clues and riddles. With some of the clues the answers are written on paper and dad would text back the answer, then he would receive a text with a riddle to solve, after solving it then the new clue would be sent by text to him and so on until the scavenger hunt is done. Just explain to him he has to reply to the text with the answer each time to get the next clue.
