Here’s a fun baseball scavenger hunt idea that’s great for anyone – kids, teens, adults, sports teams, etc.
It also includes a free printable list you can download to save you time when organizing the game – keep reading to get your copy.
Here’s how to play it:
- List of baseball items (see below)
This photo scavenger hunt can be played individually, in pairs or small teams – it depends on how many people you have playing as to which the best option will be.
Give each player (or team) a copy of the list of items they have to find, as well as a pen and camera – cellphone cameras are fine for this.
Explain that the list has 20 items that all have a baseball theme – equipment, positions, pitches, terms, etc. Their task is to take photos of all these different things, but there’s a twist…
The photos can’t be of any actual baseball items.
Here are some examples of photos that they could take instead:
- An oven mitt
- A pitcher of water
- Someone throwing some loose change up in the air
- Mounds candy bar
- Someone striking a match
- An airplane flying out of an airport
Players / teams should earn one point for each item that they take a photo of.
You can then award one bonus point for each item to the team that took the best photo. This could be based on how creative their interpretation is, how funny a picture is, for getting members of the public involved, etc.
This means there are 20 base points plus 20 bonus points available – the winner will therefore be the player / team that earns the most points once both sets have been taken into account.
Here’s the list of 20 baseball items that players have to take photos of.
Beneath this is a link to the free printable scavenger hunt list – please feel free to print as many copies as you need when playing this game. There are two copies of the list per page to reduce the amount of paper you need to use.
