If you’re looking for a fun outdoor activity with the kids this summer then a bible scavenger hunt is perfect for you. It won’t take long to set up and will have the kids playing for hours if you make it long enough.
The premise of the hunt is to have the kids look up the items they need to collect using bible versus. Then they collect all the items and turn them in to collect the prize. You can go through the bible and fin your favorite versus but here are a few examples to help give you an idea.
Leaf – Proverbs 11:28
Five Smooth Stones – 1 Samuel 17:40
Grass and a Seed – Genesis 1:11
This is a great way to teach kids how to look up passages in the bible. You can also use it as a way for them to read some of your favorite parts of the bible. Once you have all the items listed that the kids will collect you can start working on the clues. You can either write the clues out on paper or use the TextClues service to send the messages using text messages. The clues can look something like this:
Clue: Read Proverbs 11:28 and find a green L___ . Respond with what you need to find.
Clue: Great go find one! Then read 1 Samuel 17:40 and find F___ S_____ S_____ . Respond with what you need to find.

Museums are great places for kids to learn because they are so interesting once you get the kids engaged. TextClues is a great new way to use technology to get kids interested in the exhibits and excited about learning. It allows you to create clues that will be sent to any mobile phone using text messages. When you answer a clue correctly the next clue is sent and when you answer it incorrectly it tells you to “try again”. You can see it in action using the demo.
This allows you to create a brand new experience for your kids that is sure to amaze. They will be wondering how you did it. You can even say that the questions are coming from an adventurer who needs answers to his/her important questions.
It will only take a short visit to the museum beforehand to prepare the adventure. Quickly go through the museum and pick out interesting facts that you know your child would be interested in. If you are going with a few children then you might want to pick out different clues for each one. You will be able to enter all these clues into the computer in minutes then schedule the hunt to start when you’re heading to the museum.
As you walk through the museum with the kids you can enjoy each exhibit together and they will be excitedly looking for the answer to their next clue.
Here’s an example of how a hunt might start:
Clue: Hi, my name is Dr. Swill. I am an explorer and I need your help! Could you find some answers for me at the museum today? Please tell me “yes”
Clue: Perfect! When you first walk into the door you will see a big dinosaur skeleton. What is that dinosaur’s name?
Answer: trex, tyrannosaurus
Clue: Ahh just as I expected. Now can you find the name of the woman who helped Louis and Clark along their journey? …
The textclues service is perfect for creating a scavenger hunt for kids. You can input all your clues online ahead of time and start the hunt whenever the kids are getting restless and bored. You can use it as quality time with the young ones. Since all the clues and answers are taken care of automatically on the phone you can also use it to free up some alone time for yourself.
If they don’t have mobile phones of their own yet you can let them use yours for the hunt. Kids really find it exciting when they are receiving a hunt directly tailored towards them through a phone. If you haven’t had a chance to check out our textclues product take a look at the demo!
Be warned, once you send them on one hunt they’ll be asking for more!
Setting up the Scavenger Hunt
Setting up a simple scavenger hunt for your kids is easy with textclues. The first step is coming up with the clues and answers for the hunt.
For this step grab a peice of paper and go through each room in your house one by one. In each room come up with as many clues as you can. Keep them relatively simple to make sure the kids will be able to figure it out. Clues like “how many wheels are on the desk chair” and “how many drawers are on the cupboard” seem simple but make great clues. Especially on the first few hunts you want to keep the clues easy. You should be able to come up with 10 – 20 clues for each room in no time.
Next head to your computer and open up textclues. You’re going to want to make at least two scavenger hunts because your kids will be asking for more! Simply write down a clue and answer for one room then pick a clue from a room across the house next. Picking rooms far from each other will help the hunt last a little longer. You’ll have a few hunts set up before you know it.
Now when your kids are getting restless and bored you’ll be ready with a ready made scavenger hunt. Simply type in your child’s mobile phone number or your own and start the hunt. You should explain the concept to the children the first time they’re doing the hunt. It really couldn’t be easier! I always like to end the scavenger hunt by giving them a prize.
