Scavenger / Treasure Hunts

Treasure Hunt Divide kids into teams 1through 4 depending on how many are at the party. Make up clues and scatter them all over the house (and outside, too, if weather permits). Each clue leads to the next and at the end of the trail is a treasure for the team, for example, food, party favors, or prizes. Hint: Color code clues so teams only find their own clues. Time the hunt and see which team gets done first.

String Treasure Hunt Take colored strings and wind them all over your property, inside and outside. Up the stairs and then back down. Over and under furniture, beds and chairs. Teams must wind up their roll of string to find the treasure at the end of the roll.

Scavenger Hunts Scavenger hunts are a lot of fun, there are many variations on the idea. The key to a successful scavenger hunt is to think about who the players will be and make clues and items that will appeal to them. After you decide what type of scavenger hunt you will have, you need to spend some time coming up with a list of items to collect or activities to complete. Here are some fun ideas:

  • Video Scavenger Hunt - Players use video recorders to record themselves doing the silly things on their list. When all the groups get back together, they watch the tapes.
  • Picture Scavenger Hunt - Players use Polaroid® cameras to photograph the crazy things on their list.
  • Neighborhood Scavenger Hunt - Players go out on foot in your immediate neighborhood to follow the instructions on their list.
  • Mall Scavenger Hunt - Players are set loose in the mall to follow the instructions on their list. (This works well with the camera!)
