Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger HuntThis is a great indoor or outdoor game that can be amended to suit any place you and your kids may go.

What you need:

  • A pen and pencil

This is an outdoor or indoor game for one or more children.

How to play:

  1. Break into teams. Decide on the area the scavenger hunt will happen e.g. downstairs, the garden, the park, the museum etc
  2. Each team comes up with a list of things the other team has to find in the area. Depending on the area the team may collect items or they may just have to see them and write down where it was. Mix up the difficult ones for adults with simpler ones for kids. Don’t be too specific on every item so your imagination can have a work out!
  3. Swap lists and let the hunt begin! Start by going through the list with the children helping them to come up with items that have a vague description e.g. something the shape of a triangle. Assign items to everyone can be helpful too.
