Operation Birthday Bash

Our Birthday Party Scavenger Hunt for Boys and Girls

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.

OVERVIEW

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.

EXAMPLES

  • Bribe an adult for some supplies to make a big card for the birthday boy or girl. Take a picture of your youngest and oldest team members holding it. They also must be sticking out their tongues.
  • Open the mailbox and follow the instructions you find there. (There will be instructions to find a message in a balloon).


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.

NUMBER OF TEAMS OR PARTICIPANTS

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? Instead of dividing them into teams, you can keep them all on one team and have them race against the clock, giving the single team a time limit to complete each section of the hunt, report back to you and bribe you for the next section and so on until the hunt is complete.

AGE RANGE

This birthday-themed scavenger hunt party is for 7 – 12 or 13 year olds.

LENGTH OF THE HUNT

About 2 hours (you can always remove challenges if you have less time for the hunt)

PRE-HUNT PREP TIME

For up to six teams, you can put our scavenger hunts together in about 4-6 hours (includes shopping for supplies, reading the scavenger hunt and prepping the materials); as you add teams, you’ll need to add time to the pre-hunt prep. You mostly need to print (and perhaps edit) 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.

THIS BIRTHDAY PARTY SCAVENGER HUNT INCLUDES FRIENDLY, HELPFUL SUPPORT BY EMAIL ALONG WITH MASTER COPIES OF:

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.
