One day they could be a pirate, sailing the seven seas, practicing their navigation skills, while another day, they could be a mad scientist traveling back through geologic time!

STEM Educational Gamification

Learning through play improves attention and retention.  Treasure hunt quests focusing on STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) engage children in screen-free play, while developing their conceptual understanding of STEM at the same time.

These educational, adventure quests are great for home-ed parents, for after-school clubs and camps, and as exciting activities for children to do on the weekends too.  You can even use The Treasure Hunt Builder to create your own treasure hunts, tailored to your child's interests and customized to their learning goals.

What parents and teachers are saying about it...

Parent - February 2022

I printed this out for my 6 year old and we had a pirate-themed blast!  Thank you for an evening of educational fun!

Parent - December 2020

My daughter absolutely loved the treasure hunt!!!! This is such a clever way to encourage math in young kids. It captivated her for the whole morning, and when she finished it, she thanked me for setting it up (I repeat - she thanked me for setting up this math activity!!) and asked me if we could do it again. Wow!

Parent - August 2021

Thanks so much! The kids are so excited to try these out. We did the preschool math treasure hunt from the Winter Hygge bundle, and they LOVED it. They've been begging me to make another hunt ever since. I'll let you know how they go!

How is play important for development?

  • “Play usually enhances curiosity, which facilitates memory and learning. [sic] Children who were in active play for 1 hour per day were better able to think creatively and multitask. Randomized trials of physical play in 7- to 9-year-olds revealed enhanced attentional inhibition, cognitive flexibility, and brain functioning that were indicative of enhanced executive control [sic]. Children have been shown to discover causal mechanisms more quickly when they drive their learning as opposed to when adults display solutions for them,” according to The American Academy of Pediatrics. 1


  • “The ingredients of play are precisely the ones that fuel learning: in addition to promoting low anxiety, play provides opportunities for novel experiences, active engagement, and learning from peers and adults,” according to the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University. 2
