A Halloween scavenger hunt is a fun way to get the whole family involved in the festivities.
This Halloween game is great for younger kids with the help of an adult or for older kids who don’t want to trick-or-treat. It’s even a lot of fun for grown-ups, too.
When I was a kid, I can remember the excitement of dressing up and eagerly waiting for dark so I could go trick-or-treating.
My aunt would bring her girls over and my cousin and I would literally run from house to house in competition with our sisters seeing who could get the most candy.

One thing we never did, however, was to have a Halloween scavenger hunt. I guess they just weren’t popular back then.
Of course, we didn’t have the internet and Pinterest to guide us.

- It allows kids to bond and make new friends.

Things You Might Find During Your Halloween Scavenger Hunt
A princess trick-or-treating.
A pumpkin (real or fake).
A witch, but don’t worry, this one looks friendly.
Once you’ve downloaded my free Halloween scavenger hunt, print as many copies as you need.
You don’t need heavy duty paper. A multi-purpose 20# weight is fine.
Make sure everyone has their own copy, or have them work together in groups. And don’t forget the pencils/pens!
When the players find what they’re looking for, have someone take a picture of it as proof, then they can check it off their list.
The player/team who finds the most items wins.
A fun way to end the game is for everyone to decorate cookies, because who doesn’t love cookies?
