The Benefits of Scavenger Hunts

Scavenger hunts are not only tons of fun, but they offer many educational benefits as well. Here are just a few of the advantages that come along with engaging in this type of game:

  • Encourage curiosity and exploration. Children who search for different objects or items on their list will naturally start exploring their environment more closely. This encourages them to be curious and ask questions about the things they find.
  • Teach problem-solving skills. When kids play scavenger hunt games, they use critical thinking skills as they must figure out clues while trying to locate items. This teaches them important problem-solving skills that can be applied in other areas of life.
  • Help build confidence. Every time a child finds an item on their list, their confidence automatically increases. This is especially true if the item was difficult to find or required several steps of problem-solving before it could be located.
  • Promote physical activity. Scavenger hunts require players to run around searching for items while playing outdoors. These are perfect to encourage children to move around more quickly!

How To Play Scavenger Hunt Games

Our free printable scavenger hunt games are designed with younger players in mind and feature simple tasks that involve counting or observation. To play, simply download and print it out on paper (or save it as a PDF file).

Once you have printed out your game sheet, give each player a copy and have them work together (or separately) to complete the tasks listed on their sheet within the allotted time frame (usually 20 minutes). The first player/team who completes all tasks wins! It’s that simple!
