Edventures with Kids

Kids Activities, Family Travel & Fun Ways to Learn


We've been enjoying some evening walks and the halloween decorations in our neighborhood this week, so I thought I would create a Halloween Scavenger Hunt!


I love scavenger hunts as they are so versatile -- here are a few ways to use them:

  • encourage kids to get outside & get some exercise around your neighborhood,
  • as a fun activity at a halloween party,
  • a great idea for teenagers who are looking for something to do on those weekend evenings,
  • with kids in the classroom to scout out decorations around the school


Head out with the kids and see how many things you can find - there are both fun items and spooky items included on the list.

I've also included a chart at the bottom if you'd like a little friendly competition among family members ;-)

And when you finish, enjoy some warm apple cider and a fun seasonal story!

Happy Hunting!!

Thanks for linking to the Sunday showcase. I've pinned this to our board.

This is such a fun scavenger hunt! And I think it would also help the little ones who are a bit nervous about some of the scary decorations (my 4-year-old included!)
