Children’s Book Week 2018 – QR Code Treasure Hunt

Sample question

Back by popular demand, the QR Code Short List Treasure Hunt is sure to engage students. The QR Code Treasure Hunt has a question for each of the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) Short List books in the Early Childhood, Picture Book and Younger Readers categories.


  • Print out the QR codes and place them around the library (or school)
  • Print out answer recording sheets for students
  • Students scan the QR code, a question will appear – answer the question on the recording sheet
  • Once all six QR codes have been found and six questions answered place answer sheet in an entry box
  • The first fully correct answer sheet drawn from the box wins a prize!


Thanks to the How to make a QR Treasure Hunt guide which provided the instructions and tools to create the Book Week QR Code Treasure Hunt.


  1. Library Owl… I love it. I am new to Library Owl but this is something that looks totally amazing!! I am going to get onto the QR Code Treasure Hunt. Could be fun for students to do with their parents for Open Day.
    Thanks Library Owl!

    Thank you for sharing Library Owl. Now that I have iPads in the Library this will be a fantastic way to consolidate the student’s learning of the CBCA shortlist. QR Codes are great!
