How to Create a Scavenger Hunt

Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day will look a little different this year as we are all physical distancing. While we cannot gather for a large planting event, you can still enjoy and celebrate nature. Why not honor Earth Day with a scavenger hunt?

How to Create a Scavenger Hunt:

  1. Determine where and when you will be searching.  By identifying the trail or area you will be searching, as well as the time of year, you will determine what items you will find.
  2. Decide on the type of scavenger hunt. Will participants be searching for items to collect or take pictures of? Will you provide clues for participants to solve riddles?
  3. Create a list of items. When creating your list of items, consider the age of your participants and length of time for your hunt. Finding items of color and shape are great concepts for even the youngest. 
  4. Choose your prize. Offering a prize is optional for your scavenger hunt, but great fun for each team. It can be something as simple as choosing the morning snack or leading the next scavenger hunt.
