🔓 The Backstory 🔓
You were in school when an alert popped up on your phone. The teacher was watching the class as you took a test. You didn't dare check your phone right then. Between classes you peeked and saw that something was delivered. You opened the app to see what it was and noticed a large package on the front steps. It must be your birthday present, you thought. You had been begging your parents for some video games, a skateboard, and the new Oculus for your birthday. When you get home, instead of a box on the porch there was a note with odd shapes and symbols that simply said "KITCHEN" above them. It seems your mom has set up some sort of scavenger hunt that you must follow to find your birthday present.

How do virtual escape rooms work?
All you need to do is share or open the link, it’s THAT easy! This digital escape room has kids working through 10 challenges. Correct answers will generate a “key.” Should they get the puzzle answer wrong, they can guess again and again. They will NOT be able to move onto until the puzzle is decoded successfully. Pen and paper should be on hand to jot down clues.
What do I need to access the digital game?
You need access to the internet and technology devices (Chromebooks, iPads, desktops or laptops). Google accounts are NOT needed! (no e-mail addresses are required) We do not recommend cell phones because the fonts become too small and the draggable elements may become difficult to navigate.
How long does this activity take to complete?
It really depends on a lot of things. Estimated completion time is 45+ minutes but it’s based on the kids’ puzzle skills, team size, and age. Younger kids may need help with decoding the puzzles. We recommend ages 8+.
How many kids can play at once?
Kids can play individually, with friends, or in large groups (near and far). There really is no limit to the number of players.
What if the kids get stuck on one of the puzzles?
First off, let them think for a bit! This is where critical thinking skills come in. If kids get “stuck,” pop up hint cards have been included to guide them and provide examples. This is meant to be a challenge! The “hints” will NOT appear until 2 minutes have passed, this gives them time to really think about the puzzle.
IMPORTANT: To make this more of a challenge, directions for each puzzle are NOT included on the screen, but I promise kids can figure it out! This is the FUN part, watching kids think and getting that “AHA” moment! You can find out “how” to do the puzzles on the answer page in case you need to offer hints.
