Just for Giggles – Challenges

Need a break from the daily routine that is just for giggles? Bored at work and need a serious distraction just before the weekend starts? Kids driving you crazy? Then look no further – Treasure Trails could just be the answer to your anti-boredom prayers. These challenges will help you get fitter and more active – and relieve the boredom too!

Haiku Challenge!

Treasure Trails Haiku Challenge
Get creative with Treasure Trails!

Can YOU sum up your Treasure Trails experience in just 17 syllables?

We tasked Trailers over on our Facebook page to do just that – a Treasure Trails Haiku!

A Haiku is a poem with 3 lines, 5 syllables in first line, 7 in the second and 5 in the third.

Here’s what they came up with:

Look all about you.
Clues are hidden in plain sight.
Still need help? Just text!

Here in sunny Uppermill.

In London’s Little Venice
