Why do an outdoor Halloween hunt?
These days it's really important that we are able to social distance from other families when we're celebrating. With an outdoor halloween hunt you can easily do that by keeping your distance from others and wearing a mask.
Another reason for an outdoor Halloween scavenger hunt is to enjoy the nice fall weather. When the temperature cool off it's a nice chance to get outdoors and enjoy running around as a family without dealing with the blistering heat of the summer.
How to make this scavenger hunt fun?
If you are looking for a way to make Halloween fun while also sticking to social distancing, this scavenger hunt is a great idea.
Give everyone the chance to win a prize. It can be choosing the movie for the night, picking takeout options, or Halloween treats!
If you want to make it even more fun you can add some Halloween treats at some of the scavenger hunt locations or “finds.”
You can also make it a friendly competition. Either make teams among your family, or share with friends in your neighborhood. You can each time yourselves to see who wins!
Printable Halloween Scavenger Hunt
I like to keep white cardstock on hand for printing games and activities like this outdoor Halloween hunt. Cardstock is thicker than regular printer paper, so it holds up for a trip around the neighborhood and being passed around between siblings.
If you want to print this one on regular paper you can, we just like to use cardstock or heavier paper so that it holds up well during the chaos of searching, crossing things off, etc.
The link to the full sized printable is below, this is a really easy. Just click and then print as many copies as you like!
This scavenger hunt printable is just 1 page. Be sure to print more than one if you're doing a competition! Everyone will need their own so they can hunt down all of the Halloween scavenger hunt items on the list.
Tired of buying printer ink? I switched to HP Instant Ink two years ago and love it! I'm spending less than ever, and I don't have to think about it any more (that's priceless).
