National Scavenger Hunt Day

May 22, 2017


If you’re looking for something a little different to do with the kids, how about planning a scavenger hunt? National Scavenger Hunt Day is on May 24, but this is a fun activity you can do all summer long.

How To Host Your Own:

Divide kids/adults into teams. A little competition is fun.

Have a written list of items or a map for the search.

Decide how the teams will prove they found each item. They can bring the item back in a basket, or take a photo of it.

Set a time limit.

Have prizes for the winning team.

Here’s a sample search list if you want to hold your scavenger hunt outdoors:

  • pinecone
  • piece of trash
  • flower
  • something that floats
  • something yellow
  • an item that starts with a “B”
  • piece of tree bark
  • a twig shaped like a “Y”
  • a leaf bigger than your hand
  • a rock shaped like a heart

Celebrate with ice cream or popsicles and don’t forget to add a few lights to make your event really shine!
