Ravenclaw Treasure Hunt

Here are the items to be found over the next week. Don't worry if you don't get all of them, just try to find as many as you can. Cheer on your roommates, too, because you will only get points for the items your whole team finds. Some are worth more than others, as you can see. Be creative and have fun! And don't forget your originality marker...

broom (5)
diadem (10)
engagement ring (5)
fanged frisbee (10)
house socks (being worn) (5)
magical creature (15)
muggle artifact (5)
glass of butterbeer (10)
government employee (10)
horcrux (15)
lucky potion (10)
public art (5)
raven's feather (15)
shady shop (10)
tree changing seasons (5)
used textbook (5)

Your goal is to take pictures of as many of these items as possible and post them on your blog no later than Midnight PST on Wednesday, October 8. For those of you in Europe, that's Thursday morning. Remember, you must take these pictures yourselves, so you need to place a distinct originality "marker" in each photo: yourself, a piece of paper with your name, a favorite toy, a cupcake, your underwear, etc. This marker must be in all of the photos to prove its originality.

If you have any questions about these items, please post in the comments and I'll answer there so everyone can see. Have fun!


  1. Question from Cassandra Crimsonchin: Are we supposed to come up with all of them ourselves or can we share amongst our teammates?

    Answer: Each teammate has to take their own pictures.

  2. Dude, can other houses play too? This sounds like so much fun!

  3. Sure you can!! I'd love to see what you come up with! But you'll forgive me if I don't keep track of your points. :)

  4. Woo Hoo, this is going to be so much fun! I'm off to treasure hunt with my two little wizards!

  5. Is that Tuesday night or Wednesday night?

  6. Wednesday Night! But if you're in Europe, that will be Thursday morning. And if you're in Australia, Thursday afternoon/evening. Check your time zone!

  7. Thanks. I just wanted to make sure I don't miss it.

  8. Part one is up... hope you're feelin' more yourself today. :-) Bevin
