Photo Scavenger Hunts & Riddle Clues - Some Activities and Ideas

Updated on April 16, 2017

Make a Photo Scavenger Hunt more interesting!

A normal photo scavenger hunt would be played by giving out photo challenges. However, this is not the only way to play a photo scavenger hunt. Riddles, can often be used in a traditional scavenger hunt, or to make a photo scavenger hunt even more of a challenge.

If you are not good at writing riddles, then many websites are available to download riddles from. Whether you want riddles or normal clues, there will be a website that provides it, many of which offer themed scavenger hunts (pirates, beach, zoo etc). The hunts you create or download can then be combined with additional challenges. These can range from simple additions, like 'pose in a different emotion with each object', to harder challenges like 'capture a different animal or insect in every object photo'. I personally believe that photo hunts should also have the rule that a team member must be in the photos taken, as this prevents teams from cheating and using online photographs.


Just because the main part of a photo scavenger hunt is the photo, you can also add crazy additions to this. You can throw in dares, challenges or obstacle courses that must be completed between each clue. Of course, for dares, photographic evidence of the dare should also be demanded (remember, these are also time stamped, to stop half the team finishing all the dares before the photos are taken!). For a pretty detailed (and free) list of scavenger hunt ideas, just click the blue link.

      A photo scavenger hunt could spice up any gathering and would be an awesome icebreaker for people. It could change the face of often boring events like baby showers, singles events or even family reunions. Lots of potential in this idea!

      Thanks for SHARING.

      I absoltuley love this idea... I can see it getting pretty crazy especially if you break up into teams of 2 or 3 and having them traveling around the entire town looking for something. I am definitely going to have to try this sometime. Thanks for Sharing!

      Nice ideas,I would have never thought there were sites with riddles. If you throw in a challenge make it safe.
