How To Do A Halloween Scavenger Hunt?
To play, print our free PDF file with Halloween-themed items, such as pumpkins, black cats, and bats.
Find a specific location in the neighborhood for each item on the list and place it or hide it there.
Once you print the scavenger hunt, hand out a copy to each kid. Instruct them to check off the boxes of each item they see.
Then, head out into the neighborhood with them and see how many things they can find.
The kid who finds the most items at the end of the hunt wins a prize. Here’s a great idea to make it more challenging – set a time limit.
Another fun idea is to create custom clues. You can make your own clues, with each clue leading to the different Halloween items or the next clue at the next location.
This way of playing the game can be so much fun for older kids. To make the clue cards, write the clues on a piece of cardstock and trim to size.
Other than the typical Halloween treats, here are some ideas for great prizes. We like these non-candy treats:
