This child is supposed to act or use sign language to convey the thing that is to be guessed by his own team. If they guess it correctly, give them 1 point. Repeat the same with team B.

Hide the treasure or a gift at some place in the garden, and give the first clue to the children. You should have hidden consequential clues in different places that shall lead to the treasure.
