Flashlight Scavenger Hunt
Completing a flashlight scavenger hunt is the perfect way for kids to burn off energy on a nice evening. When the weather heats up the best time to be outdoors may be in the late evening after the sun goes down. This fun outdoor nighttime activity is fun and safe for kids because they will be using a flashlight!
HOW TO HAVE A FLASHLIGHT SCAVENGER HUNT
A scavenger hunt is basically just a game where participants gather up miscellaneous objects in a given area. A Flashlight Scavenger Hunt is the same concept except you are doing it at night in the dark with flashlights! Once my kids tried a nighttime scavenger hunt it quickly became their favorite way to play.
The first step is to set your rules. We like to have our front and back yard classified as our game area. You can do just your back yard if you want…whatever works best for your family
STEP ONE: IDENTIFY GAME AREA
STEP TWO: DECIDE WHAT YOU WILL HUNT
The second step is to decide what you will be hunting for during the flashlight scavenger hunt. I have included a free flashlight scavenger hunt printable for you to use if you would like! You should base your list on things that are naturally in your search area. What does your yard contain?
STEP THREE: SET UP A HOME BASE
I like to set up a home base where the kids can bring the treasures they have found on the hunt. It is typically just the table in our back yard or even on the trampoline. The kids can drop off items as they find them around the yard and it allows they to keep their hands free for more searching.
