Mall walking – a great way to exercise while taking in the various surroundings of the mall! The types of products being sold, the different store displays, the people that go by… If you and your friends like to go on walks around the mall every now and then, or if you have a mall walking group that you are apart of, why not change things up a little and make a scavenger hunt out of the walk?
No need to use pencil and paper when you are using a tool like TextClues to create a scavenger hunt. TextClues allows all of the clues to be sent to you via text on any cell phone so there will be absolutely no disruption to your regular walks!
