This creative, fun birthday scavenger hunt includes a step by step organizer guide, award certificates, invitations, thank you notes, support from the game designer & more.
This birthday party scavenger hunt is designed with a house full of kids in mind. It will work in any house but it’s best to have access to a yard and a neighborhood if possible just to expand the playing area so the kids don’t get in each other’s way.
Your group will be divided into teams of up to six kids each. Each team will receive a collection bag containing a digital camera or smart phone, rules of the game, their challenge sheet and various supplies. The teams will then embark on the scavenger hunt, taking pictures, finding hidden messages and obtaining specific items – all worth valuable points. They end the hunt by completing various projects, some with a birthday theme*. To customize the scavenger hunt, you can easily add additional items, pictures and projects to the list. Use our scavenger hunt ideas as templates for your own hunt.
*For the birthday child, tell him (or her) that he can be the “director” of his team projects. They must complete the birthday themed challenges according to his wishes.
The full scavenger hunt will have detailed instructions and other options/alternatives to consider if you don’t like or can’t use the challenges as designed.
Unlimited if you have the space and support. Recommended minimum per team: 3, maximum: 8. Suitable for a parties with boys and girls, all girls or all boys.
What if you only have a few kids participating in this scavenger hunt?
This birthday-themed scavenger hunt party is for 7 – 12 or 13 year olds.
About 2 hours (you can always remove challenges if you have less time for the hunt)
For up to six teams, you can put our scavenger hunts together in about 4-6 hours; as you add teams, you’ll need to add time to the pre-hunt prep. You mostly need to print the documents included with the kit, pack the collection bags and you’ll need to shop for team prizes and other inexpensive supplies like clipboards, project items and such. Our facilitator guide provides a supply checklist for you.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO BUY/PROVIDE: Team collection bags (plastic shopping bags or something fancier – your choice), smart phones or digital cameras, and other items (like arts & crafts supplies, pens, clipboards and prizes). We’ll let you know exactly what you need to get in our handy facilitators’ guide that comes with this scavenger hunt.
