Every house and garden is unique, but how well do you really know your own space? Take a break from the screen every day with a quick 'treasure' hunt. Some ideas to get started include:
- Make an A-Z of items, features or feelings from around the house
- Find the best nine hiding places for hide-and-seek
- Taking just seven minutes, visit your favourite seven spots in the house and write seven words to describe each spot
- Contrasting colours: time how long it takes to find 11 red items and then time how long to find 11 grey items. Which was faster?
- List nine things that you can only touch if on tip-toes or all fours
- Find the least number of straight lines you need to walk across a room. Compare this in each room
- Find 13 items to build a den: the ‘door’ must face North
- Locate nine items that have a connection: describe that connection in exactly 14 words
- Skim through any books you have to find as many place names as you can in eight minutes
- Find places that a mouse could enter but a cat couldn’t: How many can you find in seven minutes?
- What if a giant visited your house? Find spaces and items that they would find tricky to access or use.
