If you want to plan an indoor scavenger hunt, here’s a free printable list containing 40 items for players to find.
Here’s how to organize it:
- Scavenger hunt list (see below)
Give each of the players a copy of the list and a pen. Explain that all of the items on the list are things that they should be able to find indoors, then send them off to hunt for them.
The way you organize this indoor scavenger hunt will vary depending on who’s playing it and how many players there are.
Here are ideas for a few different options:
- One kid – Make it a bit more exciting by putting a limit on how much time they have to collect all of the items
- Two or more kids – Make it a competition between them by seeing which of them can collect all the items first
- Youth group – Split them into teams (or individuals) and have them go to their houses collecting the 40 items. Depending on if they can drive, you might need to arrange transport for them
