Shopping Mall Scavenger Hunt

Looking for a fun activity for a group of kids or teens? Well a Mall Scavenger Hunt provides family friendly fun at a very affordable price. There are a few different types of mall scavenger hunts. Have a read and pick your favorite.

The first is called a budget scavenger hunt. Each group is given a imaginary budget
and needs to come up with the best “purchases” for a certain scenario. They don’t
actually buy anything but instead write down what they found and can only “spend”
their imaginary budget. The scenarios can be fun like: A trip to the rain forest, a day
on the beach, climbing mount Everest or if you were trapped on a desert island.

Another fun idea is called the A-Z scavenger hunt. Here the Jeux Gonflables groups need to find an item starting with all the letters of the alphabet. You can give them a chart that has all the letters of the alphabet, a place to write the store name and a place to write the
product name.

The last option is a classic clue scavenger hunt around the mall. For this type you’ll have to head to the mall the day or morning before the hunt to come up with a list of clues. Walk around and look for interesting and funny features in the mall (storefronts, advertisements or mall features). Then ask questions about these features in the scavenger hunt.

Whenever you’re making a scavenger hunt you should consider how the TextClues service can make it that much more special. It allows you to complete the scavenger hunt entirely using text messages. See how it works using the demo.

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.

Where to Next!

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.
