Once the treasure is prepared, hide the QR codes in the following locations:
Clue 1: Just give this to your child to start the treasure hunt.
Clue 2: Hide this in your child's bedroom on his or her bed.
Clue 3: Hide this somewhere around your kitchen table or the place your child routinely eats.
Clue 4: Hide this on the TV that your child watches.
Clue 5: Hide this in the bathroom near the bathtub.
Clue 6: Hide this on the couch where your child likes to lounge.
Clue 7: Hide this in your child's dresser or closet where he/she keeps his/her clothes.
Treasure QR Code: Put this in the refrigerator taped to the treasure.
Now give your child the first QR code and teach him how to hold your phone over the code so that it will scan it. (Just open the QR code scanner and move the phone around until it can get a good, clear image.) When the leprechaun pops up, help your child read the clue. When you have solved the rhyming riddle, run to the next location and find the next QR code.
P.S. For anyone who doesn't have a smart phone or doesn't have the ability to scan QR codes, I have created a document with all the leprechaun's rhyming clues here:
You can simply print out the clues and hide them as directed above in the traditional way.
Either way you play, you can also print out this fun rainbow to add to your treasure at the end of the hunt!
