Since my childhood, scavenger hunts have been one of my favorite activities. I have utilized scavenger hunts as a mother with bored children as well as a teacher in order to challenge and stimulate my students to learn. Scavenger hunts are great for all age groups and an excellent team builder!

Clues for Holding Scavenger Hunts

Picture1

What better way to bring people together, promote teamwork and build relationships than to hold a scavenger hunt. The idea of scavenger hunts goes back to the 1930's, a creation of Elsa Maxwell. Maxwell, considered the hostess of that era, brought high society and royalty together for parties where no one ever knew what to expect. Scavenger hunts became the rage, soon finding their way into college campuses, classrooms and boardrooms. A simply game where clues lead the participants to finding answers, a scavenger hunt can be played singularly or in teams with participants as young as four or five years old to those well into their golden years.
