Taqwa Escape Room

Taqwa Escape Room

I’m super super excited to be sharing this! The wonderful Kisa Kids (kisakids.org) and Camp Noor (camp-noor.org) created a fantabulous Escape Room on Taqwa. I used their detailed notes to put it together for my kids (aged 12 and 14 years) – and they had a blast!

Here is the link with all the different printouts, set up info and guidelines you will need. The escape room has SO many different aspects to it – from cryptographs, to decoders, to invisible ink and spot the differences! I needed to purchase a few small items to set it up, such as an invisible ink pen and a plain puzzle, but otherwise managed to source most things from around the house.

Here are a few pics from our adventures!
