Why I Love Scavenger Hunts for Kids

Scavenger hunts are a great way to turn any situation into a fun game and cure any boredom! No matter where you are or what you are doing, it’s impossible to be bored when you are on a scavenger hunt! 

I often find myself looking for ways to keep my little ones busy and entertained, so I like to keep plenty of printed scavenger hunts on hand.

Scavenger hunts combine fun and learning in a way that helps kids to practice important developmental skills, such as problem-solving and teamwork. 

It’s also perfect for when you want to get your kids away from their screens and outside to play! 

How To Do A Halloween Scavenger Hunt

It’s so easy to get your Halloween Scavenger Hunt started! 

Just print enough sheets for each player or team, and you are all set!

You will need to decide whether you want each person to search for items on their Halloween Scavenger Hunt by themselves, or if everyone wants to work in pairs or teams. 

Teams work great when you have young kids playing. 

Hand out a Halloween Scavenger Hunt list to each person, pair, or team in your group. 

Get outside and explore your neighborhood! 

As you find each item, check it off your list. 

The person or team with the most items found wins! For more excitement, hand out prizes for the winners!

How To Adjust Scavenger Hunts for Different Ages

It’s always important to supervise your little ones when playing outdoors, so make sure young kids are partnered with an adult who can keep them safe while they explore their neighborhood. 

Feel free to help young kids with any reading and instructions, but let them take charge of finding the items on the list. You’ll be amazed to see how great they are at observing things and solving problems!

If your teen is reluctant to participate, try adding a little competition to your scavenger hunt. 

Turn it into a race with a prize for the winner, and they are sure to get in the spirit of things! 

Be sure to join in the fun too! 

You won’t want to miss out on this chance to have fun and make memories together.

Helpful Tools We Love When Downloading Printables

  • Printer– I love my HP+ printer that uses Instant Ink. I love it because we can use as much color ink as you want for one low cost starting at $.99/ month for ink. Try it out for free here!
  • Cardstock- I always recommend printing on cardstock. This makes it way more durable so you don’t have to worry about printing it time and time again.
  • Laminator / Laminating Sheets- Again, for added durability, grab a laminator and laminating sheets so that you can use this again and again!
  • Scissors (I seriously love these ones)
  • Dry Erase Pens- Use dry erase pens so that you can wipe your laminated printable clean over and over again for endless use!
