Scavenger Hunt List Ideas for Kids Parties
Holding a Children's Scavenger Hunt
Scavenger hunts are a time-honored solution to what to do at your child's next birthday party. They are also popular with school groups, scouting groups and other kids' activity groups. They can be designed just for fun and laughs, or you can add an educational angle to just about any scavenger hunt.
Need some ideas? Check out some of these lists for kid-friendly scavenger hunts and you will be sure to come up with plenty of ideas for your own party. Scavenger hunt games can be held indoors or, for bigger games, you can arrange to hold them outdoors and involve the whole community. How big you make the game just depends on how many chaperones you have involved.
For indoor fun in a larger setting, you can consider your indoor mall as a great location for a scavenger hunt. Usually it's a good idea to run the idea past the mall first though. Some malls won't allow it.
