Go on a treasure hunt using clues based on noises made by various home appliances.
Discussion point: Seek true treasure – listen to God’s Word.
Special clues leading to “noisy” appliances and other items in your home are the basis for this treasure hunt. Place the clues (provided below) and hide the “treasure” before beginning your hunt. The treasure can be anything you choose, but hide it with a Bible to illustrate that the treasure represents wisdom. Explain to your children that in order to find the treasure, they must listen to each clue carefully.
To begin, read the “fridge” clue aloud. When the hunters arrive at the fridge, they should find the “washing machine” clue hidden on the fridge and so on. The hunt should eventually end up at the final destination where the treasure is hidden. If you have younger children, you may choose to give then a hint by telling them that all the clues are hidden on things that make noise.
Use these clues, or make up your own:
After your children have found the treasure, take time to review the concept that wisdom is the treasure God offers to all who will listen to Him.
“My son, if you accept My words and store up My commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding, and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom and from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.”
