Kids love parties that involve them. If you are planning to host a group of kids for a birthday party or any other function, consider having a scavenger hunt to keep them engaged. The planning may need some time, but with the following tips, it will be easy to get it together.
1. Have a List of Items to Find
Various items will enthral kids at different ages. For kids under ten, things such as a bird, a green leaf, pine cone, a red truck, and something identified by colour will work. If the kids are a bit older, you can use more geographically placed items such as a stop sign, a blue house, a shopping mall and so on in a city like London.
2. Design and Print the Item List
Once you have all the items you want to include in the list, arrange them in order and design a nice item list with a place to check out.
3. Mark the Route
London is a big city. So you need to determine the location where the kids will do the scavenger hunt and mark it. This will help to direct the kids, so they do not get lost. In a city like London town, you might need to have some people on the route greet the kids and point them forward in different locations.
4. Have a Team and Group the Kids
It is not easy for one person to handle a scavenger hunt for kids. A team might have the person at the starting point and two or three others along the hunt route to make sure that everything runs smoothly. If the hunt is around a wide geographical area, kids should be in groups of three or four.
5. The Reward
Finally, choose a prize that will be worth the challenge.
If this process is too cumbersome for you, you can opt for a scavenger hunt planning company.
