Instructions for Your Kids Halloween Scavenger Hunt

1. Sign up on the form below.

2. Print out the downloads from the free resource library (link in email). There are two separate hunts, one for young kids, and one for older children that can read. Choose the one that’s right for you.

3. Then, the kids hunt for items around your house in a race against each other. Or they search around your neighborhood. If you have lots of time, do both!

You may choose to use a time limit and the child with the most items found at the end of the time wins. Or, go until one child has found them all! Again, a lot depends on your time!

What if You Don’t Have Some of These Items?

Don’t fret. Get creative! When you’re low on items, one option is to pull up a photo on your phone or tv when the kids walk by. However, if you decorate at all for Halloween, chances are you’ll have most or all of the hunt items!

  1. Thank you, this is such a great idea! I have an alternative way of using it with my three year old – I’ll simply cut out the pictures and place them around the home, and then we’ll use the written checklist, which I can read out to her, and she can tick them off herself as she finds each image! She’ll be so excited!

  2. That is a brilliant idea Michelle! Then you don’t even have to make sure you have the items at home! Thanks so much for sharing!
