Dad Builds Secret Room In His House For Daughter - What She Finds Inside Shocks Her

A run-of-the-mill treasure hunt organized by a father for his daughter goes one step further thanks to a long-held secret.

Childhood is made of memories and a feeling of adventure and freedom that is hard to replicate as an adult. Many times, our parents have worked hard to create these magical moments for us by carefully crafting special moments.

One father’s long-term plan finally came to fruition when he sent his daughter on an amazing treasure hunt.

Before his daughter was even born, one young man decided that he wanted to make sure his future child’s early life would be as magical and fun as possible. He thought of all of the things he would have loved to experience as a child, and made an amazing plan. He built a secret room off of the bedroom that would one day become his daughter’s. When she was born, he knew that he would need to be patient in order to pull off the coolest surprise.

The father waited and waited, finally setting his plan into action when his daughter was seven years old. He handed her a box filled with trinkets and old hardware, and asked her to rifle through it. Occasionally, she would hand him small items that she thought were interesting.

Then, finally, her face lit up when she handed him something she had discovered at the bottom of the box: a treasure map! Dad was just as excited, and they worked on following the map together with the little girl’s mother and grandfather.

Make 1 fake treasure map. Plant in an old unused Bay Window box. Plant some ideas in daughter’s head. Let her discover a map. Stand back and enjoy.

After following the map around the house, the little girl discovered that the clues were leading her into her bedroom. She was puzzled, but knocked on one of the walls and felt that it was quite hollow. To her surprise, both her mother and father decided it would be OK to saw through the wall and see what was waiting on the other side.

To her shock and awe, there was a whole empty room, and upon further investigation -- a treasure chest! The family was overjoyed and filled with pride about the memories they had been able to build for their little girl.

It is so important to remember to create memories for your children. We may not all have access to the money and space required to build a secret room for our children to discover years from now, but with a little imagination and a lot of enthusiasm, the memories we can create are endless!
