If you want to plan a fun activity for adults, here’s a great Neil Young scavenger hunt idea, complete with a free printable list.
Here’s how to do it:
- Scavenger hunt list (see below)
- Cameras (cellphone cameras are fine)
Give the players a list of song and album titles by Neil Young. Their task is to take photos of all of these titles, interpreting them however they like.
One team might interpret Cinnamon Girl by simply taking a photo of a girl holding some cinnamon. Another team though might make a female stick figure using cinnamon sticks.
For Mirror Ball, one team might take a photo of a literal mirror ball, while another takes a photo of a ball in the reflection of a mirror.
This music scavenger hunt will be most fun if the players are split into teams, but if there are only a few people participating, it can always be done individually.
Award one point for each song and album title that a team takes a photo of.
Award bonus points for the best photos – this can be due to how funny they are, their creativity, for getting members of the public to take part, etc.
Another option is to award one bonus point for the best interpretation of each of the song titles to whichever teams have taken them.
You can come up with your own ideas of songs to use for this photo scavenger hunt, but below we’ve produced our own list of 20 Neil Young songs and albums. These are titles that have the potential for teams to take some funny and creative photos.
