Office Scavenger Hunt List

If you’re looking for a great team building activity for your workplace, this office scavenger hunt list is just what you need.

This is a traditional scavenger hunt where players have to find and collect all of the items on the list, rather than taking photos of them. This will therefore make it more difficult to complete as there may only be one (if any) of each item in the office!

This idea is best done with players split into teams, but if you’re only a small workplace then it could be done with employees taking part by themselves.

Office Scavenger Hunt List

Put together a list of items that you’d commonly find in an office, but add an extra element to each item to make them harder to locate.

You may not have the time or inclination to come up with enough items for your own list though. Well, don’t worry – we’ve done it for you and prepared a list with 20 different items for teams to find which are listed below.

We’ve also provided a link to download a free copy of the list that you can save to your computer if you want. Please also feel free to print it as many times as you like.
