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 scavenger hunt
This Halloween scavenger hunt is a bit more complicated than the other one. 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.
Game night 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?
- Is there a winner? A prize?
- A few safety reminders are also important.
- Don’t go into homes of strangers.
- Be extra careful crossing streets.
- Stay together in the group/team.
- Be respectful of other peoples’ property.
