Trouble motivating the troops?
Try a pirate treasure hunt to create some excitement! Yo ho ho, thrill of the chase, and all that.
Power Puzzle has 4-set worksheets that contain secret messages using PigPen code and written in pirate-rhyme. These are actually instructions on where to find treasure - somewhere in your own home!
Parents can decide what the reward will be: candy or a sweet, a toy or note, or maybe even a reward voucher for a special treat (such as being able to choose a movie or staying up a half hour past bedtime). The completed worksheet will reveal the location of the loot - just be sure to hide the prize for your scavengers to find!
