If you are looking for budget-friendly, kid-friendly summer fun, here is a list of ten scavenger hunt ideas. Enjoy!
Table of Contents
Everyone get a matchbox (or something similar in size), and they have to fill it with as many tiny things as they can in the allotted time. No duplicate items in the same box.
A container they can use to put items in. Gather as many things of the same “chosen” color as they can.
Same concept as color but items are found by different textures.
Clue Based Hunt
Come up with scavenger hunt clues to help your participants find the items on their list. This is a great TEAM option.
Back Yard Nature Hunt
A container they can use to put items in. Gather as many NATURE-related things as they can. Make sure they know not to put LIVE things in the container!
Glow in the Dark Scavenger Hunt
Combine the excitement of a treasure hunt with the extra fun of glow in the dark paint and toys.
Magazine Hunt Ideas
Make a list of items to search for in magazines (ie. man with a beard, perfume, a flower, etc.). Set a timer.
ABC Scavenger Hunt
Pick a theme. Set a time limit and give each team a list lettered A to Z. The challenge: Find one item beginning with each letter.
This is great for younger kids. Choose a topic: letters, numbers, words, shapes, etc. Gather as many things of the same “chosen” topic as they can.
You can do a few things with this one…
1. How many states can you find before you get back home?
2. ABC’s. Look for letters on signs, buildings, cars, etc. in alphabetical order while driving. They MUST be found in order. That’s what helps make it challenging.
3. How many colors can you find before you get back home?
