Here’s a bit of Halloween tomfoolery
that makes for a perfect party:
The Halloween Scavenger Hunt
It’s fun for all ages and couldn’t be easier to put together!
We’ve enjoyed rounding up our group of usual suspects year after year to traipse through the streets in a high-spirited hunt! Here’s a list of tips and tricks for how to host a successful Halloween Scavenger Hunt party of your own:
1. Set a date and send out invitations with all the particulars. Ask guests bring a digital camera and let them know they’ll get bonus points for coming in costume.
3. On the day of the scavenger hunt, give each family an identical bag of “tricks” which includes their scavenger list, pens & pencils, and some fun props, including a roll of toilet paper for “mummifying” one of the team members.
4. Send all the teams out at the same time and print their “return time” on the scavenger hunt list (or bag). We typically give the participants an hour. Depending on your neighborhood, you may want to give your teams the option of using their car.
5. When guests return, treat them to some warm cider and spooky sweets.
