B. Create lots of quick Treasure Hunts and Egg hunts (remember they don't get saved)

The point of a treasure hunt is to hide clues that lead to a treasure. But what if you were able to hide the treasure in plain sight? An augmented reality treasure hunt lets you hide treasure anywhere! (so long as it’s immobile...) Create a treasure hunt around your home or garden. 

Gamar’s AR treasure hunt is a quick, easy (and free!) way to create a fun activity for kids or a scavenger hunt for anyone. 

Treasure in plain sight - Hide treasure anywhere!

Just follow these five simple steps to create your own treasure hunt:
