Treasure hunt

If you are going to be away for a stretch either working on site or travelling, hide “treasure” around the house before you leave – notes of appreciation, small treats, poems or jokes, small toys, etc – one for each day you are going to be away. Then send a clue each day to your child via text or phone as to where an item might be.

(You might need to leave a backup list of where the treasure is hidden with your partner at home in case your child has trouble interpreting your clues.)
