Scavenger hunts are fun! They add something extra to ordinary events and make them memorable.
They’re easy to create and can be tailored to any theme, any age, any place. Scavenger hunts are usually thought of for parties or other large groups, but they’re just as fun for small families or even individual children.
A scavenger hunt adds an element of competition, urgency and excitement to any everyday event and makes it something special. They’re great for parties, but equally fun for rainy days, car trips, visits to new places, meeting new people or any time kids get bored. You can make almost anything—even chores—into a game by turning it into a scavenger hunt.
