Treasure Hunt with Pasta

This treasure hunt is gooey and lots of fun.  Perfect for indoors or outdoors.  Could be great at Halloween!  Or for outdoor hunts, try the Jelly Treasure Hunt.

Here are some more Treasure Hunt ideas.  Older kids will love the challenge of a puzzle treasure hunt.

You can find lots of Kids Crafts in our Activity Library.

Pasta Treasure Hunt


large bowl or other container
cooked pasta (spaghetti works best!)


  1. Put the cooked pasta into the container.  Make sure it's cooled!
  2. Mix in the treasure.  These could be plastic animals, candies in sealed wrappers, or closed and taped plastic Easter Eggs.

Some kids love sticking their hands in and digging through the cold pasta.  Have them imagine what they are digging through (snake pit, intestines, ....)



  1. Add a bit of oil to the pasta so it doesn't stick together as it cools. 
  2. For a child that doesn't like the gooey feel, have a pair of tongs on hand.
