During the summer season, almost all children are out of school which means that their parents will have a hard time trying to keep them on the truck. Kids have a lot of energy that they want to use in playing and exploring new places, and because of this, you might hear them complain that they are bored during the summer because they don’t have something to do. It is important that you create fun activities that kids can take part in during the summer to keep them having fun all the time. One of the activities that you can come up with is scavenger hunting which can be played by anyone in the family. For most parents, they do not have an idea on how they can organize one of this activities and also, how far they can go with it. The best thing about a scavenger hunt is that it can be played either indoors or outdoors, you can decide to keep it simple or extensive according to the way you like it.
When planning this hunt, the first thing that you should ask yourself is the best place to start. Having a location and checking the weather condition is among the things that one is supposed to check when planning this game. In cases where the weather is not favorable to play outside, you can plan the hunt in the house where you can get more creative with the themes and decorations used for the hunt. Where the weather is good to play out, a scavenger hunt can be turned into an outing where the kids can have good space for exploring their neighborhood. Once you are done with the selection of a place to play in, coming up with the theme of the game is next and this mostly depends on your location and also the age of the kids. The final prize should correspond to the theme of the game and also when you are selecting the theme, consult with the kids on the things that they want. The clues should be simple to understand and fun and also consider the amount of time the kids can spend in paying attention.
The clues are used to keep the game entertaining and so, they can be placed in areas where kids can get to discover new locations in the house. To come up with a fun hint, get to work backwards from your final prize. Another tip that you can consider is taking a photo when one gets to reach on clue or location connected to the game. The reason as to why photos are taken is to help award the winner at the end.
