Flashlight Scavenger Hunt
If 2020 has taught us anything it has been to create family traditions and to be more creative with our time. Thinking outside the box has taught us to make new memories.
Did you know? Memories are created when something different happens. Have you noticed how quickly the days and weeks fly by when you are in the same old routine. When you change up that daily routine and add in something different, you have created a memory in your child’s mind. It is a bump in the road on their walk of life and creates something they look back on – that can be good or bad. Why not create more bumps in the road that are good.
One way to change up a routine week or weekend night is to add in a Flashlight Treasure Hunt.
Outdoor Flashlight Scavenger Hunt
Take your traditional family game night out of the box with this Night Scavenger Hunt idea for kids. This scavenger hunt is very basic. What makes it fun for Family Camping or Backyard Entertainment is that it’s out of the norm. You child will love waiting for the the sun to set and pulling out their flashlight. You can take this scavenger hunt on a trail, to a campsite or use in your own yard.
This flashlight hunt is a free printable. Participants can be of all ages. The outdoor scavenger hunt checklist makes it easy for younger kids, just have an older kid guide them on what the words say. They can direct the flashlight beam of light toward the object and then check the box.
For a fun twist, it’s easy to turn this into a photo scavenger hunt too, just take along your camera or cell phone and make a checkmark when you capture the item in a photo. If you want to adapt this outdoor scavenger hunt at night to teens, take this challenge at twilight when the light is just right. Turn this into a photo scavenger hunt. While the kids will finish this treasure hunt rather quickly, you can vote on best photographs for the win! If the mall feels like the wilderness (filled with wild animals – aka teens) also consider our photo scavenger hunt for teens at the mall.
When taking the flashlight scavenger hunt challenge, make your evening family activity even more fun, trying paring this adventure with even more fun by adding in S’mores Campfire Cones or learn How to Color Flames in a Fire (in our overnight camping tips.)
