Printable Scavenger Hunts for Kids
Some of my most favorite memories are via scavenger hunts. First, it got me out of my comfort zone and allowed me to meet other people. Second, I love a good challenge and a good gift so I will work hard to be a winner. They are great ice breakers for large groups or fun ways to shower someone with love when creating an individual hunt.
What is a Scavenger Hunt?
Scavenger Hunt is an engaging game played by children (and adults alike). Organize the game in advance by creating a list of objects to find and clues to help the players locate the items. To play the game, divide the players into at least 2 teams, and give them the first clue.
What are the Scavenger Hunt Rules?
Scavenger hunts can be played individually or in groups (who finishes firsts). There are two types of hunts. Hunts can be consecutive where a team (individual) is given the first clue which leads to the second, third, and fourth… or hunts can be done using a checklist where the full list of “must dos” are provided at the beginning.
Individual Scavenger Hunts
Individual scavenger hunts are a great way to busy a child or give them individual gifts. At each stopping point, before the next clue is given, gift your child a piece of their larger present. You can do this on birthday or even collecting their Back to School Supplies. Who said back to school supplies are boring? To begin, supply the player with the first clue. The first clue will lead them to the second. The second will lead them to the third clue and so on until the scavenger hunt is over. You also can have a scavenger hunt checklist where the entire list must be completed before a prize is given.
Group Scavenger Hunts
Group scavenger hunts are perfect sleepovers, lock-ins, class parties, and more. Even adults can find their inner youth and can have fun challenging each other in outdoor venues likes parks and concerts, or perhaps at the mall or in a cityHUNT challenge around town.
Either supply your groups with clue #1 or provide them a list of things to get on a piece of paper. This list is their checklist and must be completed in order to declare a winner. A checklist Scavenger Hunt is typically easier for large groups.
