Most of the children are out of school during the summer period, which means that most of the parents will have a hard time during this season to check on their kids. Staying in one place without something to keep you entertained is very hard for the kids to do and that is why from time to time, they shall be complaining that they are bored or tired. It is important that you create fun activities that kids can take part in during the summer to keep them having fun all the time. One of the activities that you can come up with is scavenger hunting which can be played by anyone in the family. For most parents, they do not have an idea on how they can organize one of this activities and also, how far they can go with it. According to the way you want it to be, the game can either be simple or extensive and also, you should be aware that the game can be played either indoors or outdoors.
Finding the place to start is the first step that you go through when planning such a game. There are two most important things that guide you on where you shall host the game and that is the location and current weather condition. In cases where the weather is not favorable to play outside, you can plan the hunt in the house where you can get more creative with the themes and decorations used for the hunt. Playing this game outdoors is very good since it gives the kids a chance to explore their surroundings especially when the weather is good to play outside. Once you are done with the selection of a place to play in, coming up with the theme of the game is next and this mostly depends on your location and also the age of the kids. The final prize should correspond to the theme of the game and also when you are selecting the theme, consult with the kids on the things that they want. When you are doing this, you should keep in mind the attention span of the kids when coming up with the clues to keep it fun and understandable.
The clues should be able to keep the kids entertained, placed in new locations where the kids can discover them. It is important to note that, the best way to come up with a clue is getting to work backward from your final destination or prize. Taking photos is always a good thing when the game is going on. The reason as to why photos are taken is to help award the winner at the end.
