Participating in a scavenger hunt is practically a rite of passage for tweens and teens. In fact, I remember my first scavenger hunt as clear as day -- our team was the only one who could procure a red balloon from our neighborhood. That red balloon made us champions, and winning felt so good!
While the traditional scavenger hunt is merely a search for miscellaneous objects, there are many ways you can help kids step up their scavenger hunt game without collecting physical items (thanks to a handy invention known as the camera phone).
Don't know where to start? We've created a FREE printable scavenger hunt that will help you find your family fun! With 10 things to do and 10 things to find, you and your kids can make memories to last a lifetime!
