Halloween is a night of fun for kids of all ages. Give your older kids this tween and teen Halloween scavenger hunt for a creative activity that will keep them busy for hours.
A few years ago when my kids were a bit younger, I made a printable Halloween scavenger hunt for trick-or-treating. It is a fun activity to keep younger kids entertained when it is a bit early to go door to door and makes a great distraction from all the candy.
My kids are older now and I decided it was time to come up with a new version. Halloween is fun, no matter how old you are.
Tween and teen Halloween scavenger hunt
This version is a bit more complicated. The little kid version is mostly simple decorations and costumes that you’ll probably see when walking around your neighborhood.
For the tween and teen version, I wanted it to be a bit of a challenge. I included a few things that they would really need to be creative to find and a few that were a little open to interpretation.
This would be a fun challenge for a Halloween party or a group of kids to do with friends. Of course, you can go on a scavenger hunt while trick-or-treating if your kids are planning to do that too.
Scavenger hunt rules
If you are letting the kids go hunting or trick-or-treating on their own, be sure to come up with rules ahead of time:
- What are the boundaries?
- Does the game have a time limit?
- Do they check items off or take a photo?
- Do they have to find items in order?
- A few safety reminders are also important.
