One of the earliest memories my daughter has is from a treasure hunt I set up for her when she was 3 years old. To this day she names it as her best childhood memory.
So we try to do treasure hunts as much as we can. We do them spontaneously while having a hike or I spend extra time to prepare and hide the clues and most importantly hide the treasure.
At home treasure hunt can be a good way to entertain the kids without tablets and TV.
