What child doesn't love a treasure hunt? And with over 40 preprinted clue cards, this game makes it quick and easy to set up a hunt that'll keep your kids occupied for a pretty long time. But convenience isn't the only great thing about this game.

The Picture Helper poster lets non-readers decode words on the clue cards by matching them to pictures. That's not only a great way to boost reading skills, it's what makes this game so much fun - and three skill levels keeps it interesting for different age groups. Our testing kids loved figuring out the words on the clue cards, and not just to get the treasure. It was the hunt itself that was fun, and since parents didn't always need to rely on fancy treasure-like incentives to keep kids interested, they were happy to let their kids to play as often as they wanted.

A huge hit with all our testers, this treasure hunting game is a superbly designed educational tool that's loaded with kid-appeal and parent satisfaction.

Note: The game includes suggestions for different kinds of treats to offer, but our testeting parents suggest that instead of using a full treat for every game, offering coupons or tokens to save towards treats and special privileges works just as well.
