Today our family did this amazing Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt, and our kids LOVED it. We hid some frozen Valentines in the snow around our yard and our girls enjoyed hunting for them. It was great fun, and free, and I know your kids would love it too!

How To Create a Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt for Frozen Hearts

We used my dollar store heart shaped muffin tin to make my ice cube valentines. I added a few drops of red food colouring to the water to make them red. You could also use a heart shaped ice cube tray.

This afternoon, we did the hunt in our backyard. My husband and I hid them while the girls played on the deck. The hearts looked so beautiful in the white snow, hidden all around the garden.
