Scavenger hunts can change a boring party into and exciting party everyone will enjoy. Guests are grouped into teams and are given a list of items to locate. A list of clues is supplied to help locate these items. The teams with the most items are the winners. There are numerous types of clues that can be used in the hunt. Maps, riddles, puzzles and photos are some of the clues that can be used. Photos give the team a visual clue of the items on the list.
Hosting a scavenger hunt using photos as clues will take some advanced planning. This is because photos must be taken of the clues, developed and copies made for each team. Photos can be of anything depending on the theme of the hunt. An outdoor scavenger hunt could include trees, structures, statues, streets, and signs. Indoor scavenger hunt photos could be household items, furniture and basically anything inside the home. The clues could be photos of a dozen roses, candles, and chocolate dipped strawberries that lead to a secret romantic dinner on the patio. The choices are unlimited.
When planning a scavenger hunt with photo clues, always carry a camera. Pick the area and start taking photos of things that tie in with your hunt. The information in the photos can make the hunt easy or challenging for your teams. The age of your guests should be considered when designing your clues. If the clues are too difficult or challenging the teams might lose interest in the game.
There are many ideas and various ways to use photo clues in a scavenger hunt. The photo clues can be used at kid's party to make for a fun and exciting day. Photo hunts are also great for children who are too young to read. It allows them to participate in the game as well.
