Scavenger Hunt Theme Ideas

The Nature Scavenger Hunt
The great outdoors, nature, give us one of the best scavenger hunt themes. Natural items can be the focus of the scavenger hunt and there are hundreds of choices for your list. Have the teams collecting things like; a round rock, leaves from three different kinds of trees, an acorn, a berry, a pine cone, a flower and so on. When the children have collected all the items on the list let them use these things and make a craft project.
The Digital Scavenger Hunt
Choosing to do a digital scavenger hunt is another option. Make out a list of things for the teams to capture on camera. Include pictures of the team doing interesting or silly things. Ideas include the following; create a pyramid with the whole team, hug a tree, have a team member touch a stop sign and ring the door of a neighbor or get a photo with a policeman. You can add to your list by asking for pictures of a mailbox, the corner store, a green house...list ideas go on and on. Just think about your neighborhood and start writing!
A Scavenger Hunt At The Mall
What's more natural than taking teenagers to the mall? Well then, this is another wonderful option for your scavenger hunt themes. Taking the group to another location is also a lot of fun when planning a scavenger hunt party. Mall scavenger hunts can turn a regular trip to the mall into a real party!
Conduct a scavenger hunt with freebies found in the mall. Make a list of common free items found throughout the mall such as credit card applications, a straw, a napkin, a sample and so on. Taking a preliminary trip to the mall with the birthday child to find items to put on the list is a special time in itself.
Twilight Novel Scavenger Hunt Ideas
Plan a Twilight Novel Photo Scavenger Hunt. Get your guests to take pictures of different things from any of the Twilight Novels...a picture of the moon or a dog that looks like a wolf for New Moon. An apple or red ribbon for Twilight, or even a picture of an old red truck, a silver Volvo or Rosalie's BMW convertible. You get the idea...use ideas from the Twilight Saga to make up your hunt list.
Use these scavenger hunt ideas carefully. Always plan to have an adult travel with scavenger hunters. Kids shouldn't be unsupervised. Keep your lists short and don't make them too difficult. After all, this is supposed to be fun. Keep it light and interesting!
