Scavenger Hunt Story Time

 

Subject: Kids Games

 

Spend an afternoon searching for fun in and around your house with a scavenger hunt. It’s a great way to keep children busy while making dinner, and an excellent way to entertain a group.

 

For 3-6 Year Olds: As you look through magazines and newspapers, cut out items that are similar to things in your yard or house. Examples of pictures could be:

  • A purple flower
  • A red leaf
  • A black button
  • A book

 

For 6-12 Year Olds: Cut out words and phrases of items that could be found in and around the house. Examples could be:

 

  • Flower
  • Leaf
  • Red
  • Shoe

 

Put the pictures or words and phrases into an empty box and let children draw one.

 

Game can be played in teams to get children working together. Or, let each child draw their own picture, word or phrase and see who can find his item first.

 

As each item is found, children draw another picture, word or phrase from the box to hunt for something else. Add a time element to really get the children moving around. Challenge the children to find five items in twenty minutes.

 

Variation: When all items are found, have the children create a story using the items.
