I love scavenger hunts! I don't know why exactly why. I've only been on three scavenger hunts that I can remember, and it has been many years since the last one that I participated in. When I was in my teen years, I loved looking at YouTube videos of scavenger hunts. I have recently started looking at scavenger hunt videos again. There are many different types of scavenger hunts. Some of them involve taking pictures of certain objects, others have questions you have to answer, and then there are ones with tasks that have to be completed and then photographed or recorded for proof. Some scavenger hunts determine a winner by the number of items completed, and other scavenger hunts use a point system to determine a winner. It does not matter what system you are using it can be difficult to come up with ideas to put on your scavenger hunt list. I decided to do my part to help solve that problem by making a list of items that you could include in your next scavenge hunt. I have put the list in categories based on different types of scavenger hunts. I hope your next scavenger hunt is super fun!
