Do you need some scavenger hunt clues that are more challenging for older kids, or even adults? Scavenger hunts are great but if the clues don’t require much thought for the searcher they just aren’t as much fun.
I came up with these clues to use for my indoor scavenger hunts. You can use them to hide your kid’s Easter Baskets or use the clues to have scavenger hunts at cold weather birthday parties, reunions, or at any get-together. If you divide the kids into groups, scavenger hunts are a great way to break the ice when kids are shy because they have to work together to find the clues that eventually lead to the prize.
I like rhyming scavenger hunt clues, but that’s just my preference. It’s much easier to come up with clues when rhyming is not involved but here are a few ready-made clues that just might challenge your older kids, or even your adult friends!
Clue #31: I am always needed to clean up a mess. For dirt, sand or crumbs; I’m quiet, can you guess?
Clue #32: I can hold pictures of your family, knick knacks and such. I’m up off the floor and sometimes warm to the touch.
Clue #33: When people use this they say “Say Cheese”. Then we say, “Make this the last one please!”
Clue #34: You can change how you look when you push buttons on me. Then play golf, tennis, bowling, or throw a Frisbee.
Clue #35: When you watch me I can make you laugh or make you cry. Everyone likes to watch something different on me and I can see why.
Clue #36: Not everyone can watch us, it depends how old you are. Now people even watch us while riding in a car.
Clue #37: Just listen and you’ll hear us, you might just tap your feet. We’re round and smooth but we have tracks. How’s that for being neat?
Clue #38: I live in the house and I don’t go outside because I need to stay dry. I come in a set and before buying me people like to give me a try.
Clue #39: I come in lots of colors, but mistakes: you can’t erase. I’m needed several times a day. Keep me in a handy place.
Clue #40: I come in lots of colors but I leave behind only one. I’m popular with all ages. I can check off things you’ve done.
I’m trying something new this time with my scavenger hunt clues. I did not provide the answers. See if you can guess what they are and leave them in the comments at the bottom. I’ll post comments of my own to confirm your answers to the scavenger hunt clues!
