Our At the Park Scavenger Hunt is absolutely fantastic for a day at the park with your group! If you’d like to take it up a notch, play by finding multiple parks in the area and incorporate items unique to your parks. Thanks to Ray Hintz & StuMinStuff.com for sharing another great hunt!
Scavenger hunts are a great way to help teach the importance of communication and teamwork. It’s also a super easy way to host a fun afternoon with your group! The At the Park Scavenger Hunt can be played at just about anytime of the year, as long as the weather cooperates. If you decide to host this scavenger hunt, remember to give a few bucks for gas, food and some prizes if needed.
Over the next 40 days, we will be sharing one scavenger hunt each day, but if you absolutely can’t wait to see them all or want them all in one place, you can download the Kindle version on Amazon!
Today, we continue our scavenger hunt list with a At the Park Scavenger Hunt.
PREP TIME – 10-15 minutes
ITEMS NEEDED – Drivers, PDF Printouts for Each Team, Prizes (optional)
GAME TIME – 1-4 Hours (closer to an hour if you’re playing on location at one park)
PARTICIPANTS – Everyone (Teams of 4-5)
Give each team a list of items to look for and send them out. Make sure to give them a time in which they need to be back.
Once they arrive back from the hunt, have them bring in their items to be scored one by one. Keep a record of their points and announce the top scores to the entire group, concluding with the winning team!
Stay tuned for more great Scavenger Hunts. Happy Hunting!
1. If you are playing as an event, make sure you have your drivers lined up beforehand. They also need to understand that driving safely is a top priority!
2. Create an excel sheet for the items on the list and a breakout for the score. If you are unable to do so, have someone set it up! This will greatly expedite the tallying process. If you have a large group, have multiple people tallying scores.
3. Award the winning team some items you find at the park for all their hard work!
4. Create a hashtag for your event, post plenty of pics and videos and tag everyone involved!
