We already know that our canine pals are the perfect companions on a Treasure Trail with these five tell-tail signs that your dog is a top explorer.
But, our four-legged friends aren’t the only ones who can teach us a thing or two about avoiding enemy agents, tracking down the treasure and examining the evidence! Delve into the world of wild explorers to really hone your treasure-seeking skills with tips from the pros.
1. Follow your instincts
Sometimes, when out searching for clues and answers, you just have to go with your gut! Hawks are known for their strong instincts. They know where to go to give themselves the best chance of finding good prey. Plus, they know instinctively the best time to swoop to ensure they grab their prize! We can also learn from their circling technique, scanning the ground below for clues to where their next meal will come from.
So next time you’re stuck on a clue or not sure which way to go, survey the wider area in case you missed something, and go with your gut instinct to hone in on that all-important answer!
2. Work hard – don’t give up!
When you’re stuck on a super sneaky clue, it’s important to keep trying and not give up! Busy bees don’t just work hard to maintain their hive and look after their queen; they also work seamlessly as a team. Pull your whole squad together to make the tricky clues a lot easier to crack.
3. Take your time
Slow and steady wins the race! Just like a tortoise and their other slow pals – sloths, snails and starfish – you don’t want to rush ahead when you’re exploring. If you sprint onwards in search of your next clue, you may slip straight past it… or past the muddy footprints of rival treasure seekers! Slow down and take your time to fully observe your surroundings and discover tucked-away treasures or super sneaky clues.
4. Never forget
An elephant never forgets, and neither does a goldfish (despite the rumours)! You never know when something you’ve spotted during your expedition may prove useful, so it’s important to pay attention and commit anything you notice to memory. Or, tap into your detective training and make notes as you go to ensure anything important is on hand to help you crack the case.
5. Don’t forget to play!
Dolphins love to play. They jump and spin in the air and have been known to surf the waves too! We’re not suggesting jumping or surfing will help you find any clues, but we can still learn a lot from dolphins. So next time you and your team are stuck on a clue, remember that your number one aim is to have fun! Pop into a playground (kids only!), or have a drink stop to take a break from searching, then return to your mission, quest, or investigation invigorated and ready to solve those final clues!
