Enjoying Your Child’s Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger hunts are very popular games for kids. It's also a great game idea for parties; even if you're an adult, scavenger hunts are still fun. They involve everyone and awaken the detective and adventurer within.

Here are a few tips to get you started.

Remember Tips and Warnings!

Remember, you can have more than two teams. Smaller teams are more fun. Have each team find different things or just some of the same items. They may run into each other on their quests. Scavenger hunts for many topics are available on the internet if looking for a hunt in a classroom environment. Children should be accompanied by an adult if visiting neighborhood homes for the hunt.

"Thank you for this excellent product. We had the party on Saturday and it was fantastic. I live in France so had to translate it and we did a Harry Potter theme. For the code, we sent the kids to a computer where they typed in the code and then a PowerPoint presentation sent them to the kitchen for the treasure. It was really brilliant fun and I know we'll be doing it all again soon!
Thanks again,"

"Hi Nikki

We had a great Treasure Hunt for my daughter’s 11 year old party. We had five teams and I had two other grown-ups helping me. I did the pea challenge, the balancing on a rope, a general knowledge quiz, the backward clues quiz, a memory game and a beat the buzzer game, some they found more challenging than others. The treasure map I hid inside a balloon and mixed it in with lots of other balloons so they had to pop them all to find the map, I had also hidden the bag of balloons.

The treasure map was then found and the hunt for the chest started - it was located up a tree.

They all had great fun, the weather stayed dry and the bags of gold coins for the treasure box were appreciated. What a great idea, I shall certainly keep it for using again.

Best Wishes."

"Hi Nikki
It all went very well. It seemed easy, and when you have the planner in front of you it is straight forward. However without the planner I really don't think I'd have been able to do it. Thank you"
