Fun variations for these printable Halloween scavenger hunts

While you can simply print out the scavenger hunt pages and have your kids find the items, you can also make this extra fun with a couple of easy changes:

1. Have a scavenger hunt competition

To have a scavenger hunt competition, divide your family, guests, or friends into several small groups.

Then you’ll need enough copies of the same scavenger hunt page for each group.

Give each group the same amount of time to work on the scavenger hunt. They can either cross items off the list as they see them, find and bring back the physical items, or do a photo scavenger hunt (more on that in a minute!).

The group that finds the most items on the page in a specific amount of time is the winner!

2. Organize a photo scavenger hunt

A photo scavenger hunt is lots of fun! For each item on the scavenger hunt checklist, players need to take a picture of themselves with the item.

This means each team will need a phone or other type of camera. Encourage teams to take silly or funny photos for extra points.

And if they can’t find a specific item, they could always take a photo of themselves impersonating it.

For example, if players can’t find the upside-down witch legs on the Halloween Decorations Hunt or the mummy on the Halloween Costumes hunt, they could act them out and take a picture instead.

At the end of the scavenger hunt, it’s best to have each team share their collection of photos by screen sharing to a larger screen, such as a television. This way everyone can see each other’s photos.

You could even give a small prize to the team for the most creative or goofiest photo!
