If you and your friends are Michael Jackson fans, why not organize a photo scavenger hunt based on some of his song titles.
Here’s how to organize this music scavenger hunt idea which includes a free printable list:
- List (see below)
- Cameras (cellphone cameras are fine)
This can be played in small teams or individually – small teams tend to be more fun though.
Give each team / player a copy of the list of songs (see below). Advise them that their task is to take photos of each of the song titles.
Explain that they don’t have to be too literal with the photos – in fact, the more creative their interpretations of the Michael Jackson songs, the better!
Give them a few examples to show what kind of photo ideas you’re looking for:
- Black Or White – A pint of Guinness or a salt and pepper shaker
- Off The Wall – A broken egg on the ground (as in from where Humpty Dumpty fell!)
- Smooth Criminal – A male player dressed as a thief shaving his face
- Heal The World – An atlas with a Band-Aid on it
Here’s a list of 15 songs by Michael Jackson that you could use for this scavenger hunt. The song titles are all perfect for players interpreting in different ways, making their photos fun and unique.
Beneath this is a link to a free printable list – please feel free to make as many copies as you need to organize this game.
- Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough
- Rock With You
- Off The Wall
- Beat It
- Man In The Mirror
- Another Part Of Me
- Smooth Criminal
- Leave Me Alone
- Black Or White
- Heal The World
- You Are Not Alone
Award one point for each song title that a team takes a photo of, meaning a possible total of 15 points for the first part.
Next, award bonus points for some of the best photos. This could be based on how funny the photo is, that a team got members of the public to be involved, how creative the picture is, etc.
Alternatively, you could award one point for the best photo for each song.
The winning team / player would be whichever one scored the most after the bonus points have been taken into account.
