Sometimes it’s hard to decide what to do at a weekend with the kids when nobody knows what they want to do. There is normally some moaning that they don’t want to do this or go there.
But Treasure Trails is always something that we can enjoy as a family, while getting to look around new places. We have done a few treasure trails before you can check them out here.
We chose to go to Preston as it’s not to far away from where we are and it seemed like a good family friendly treasure hunt.
I’m not going to spoil it and tell you about the hunt as I would recommend that you try them out for yourself as they are great fun.
Here are some pictures that I took while we were out on our Treasure Trail.
I think we all enjoyed this Trail and I was surprised there was this beautiful park, hidden away but not far from the centre of Preston. We found out a lot of information about Preston through this trail too and I’m glad that even though we were doing something fun it was still educational. The girls didn’t even know they were learning as we were going.
It did get a little competitive at times between me and the Mr who really does have no sense of direction…. Sorry if you are reading this but well lets admit it you don’t. He didn’t like it when I spotted a clue from quite a distance and then didn’t agree with the way I said we needed to go. Even though I was only reading the instructions on the sheet. It panned out that I was right and he pulled a face and pretended like he had just been testing my ‘skills.’ This happened a few times and well you can guess how it turned out……
I was right and he was wrong haha!
Have you been on a Treasure Trail, which one did you do? Or would you consider doing one?
I would love to find out.
