- Scavenger hunt list
None, other than printing off the list below.
This game can be played in small teams if you have a group of players, or individually if you only have a few people taking part.
Give each player / team a copy of the number scavenger hunt list and a pen. Explain that their challenge is to collect all of the items on the list.
The twist is that they have to collect the exact number allocated for each item – for example, 7 rolls of toilet paper and 19 pennies.
Award one point for each item that is collected – this means that there’s a total of 210 points up for grabs (1 + 2 + 3, etc)
The winning player / team will be the one that collects all of the items first.
If none of them manage to collect all the items within the time limit, the winner will be the person / team who earned the most points out of 210.
Here’s a list of 20 different items to have the players hunt down and collect. Beneath this is a link to a free printable copy of the list – please feel free to print as many copies as you need when playing this number scavenger hunt.
