Shiver me timbers!
Here’s a free pirate scavenger hunt list that’s just what you need to organize a fun activity for kids.
This makes it perfect for pirate birthday parties or for any aspiring Jack Sparrow.
Here’s how to play it:
- Scavenger hunt list (see below)
- Cameras (cellphones are fine)
Give the kids a copy of the list below that contains 12 pirate-themed items, as well as 3 bonus items. As it’s a photo scavenger hunt, their task is to find all 12 items and take photos of them.
They then need to take photos of the 3 bonus items – these are also pirate-themed but will require a bit of creativity on their part to decide how to interpret the item.
For example, “Shiver me timbers” could result in them putting a plank of wood in the freezer, while “Blackbeard” might have them painting their chin black.
Instead of organizing it as a pirate photo scavenger hunt, you could require players to collect all the items instead.
If you’re doing this at home with your kids, hide the different items around the house for them to have to find.
Here’s the list of items for players to have to find and collect / photograph. Beneath the list, there’s a link to download a free printable copy of the pirate scavenger hunt list.
- Skull & crossbones
- Gold coins
- Wooden leg
- Pirate hat
- Treasure chest
- Shiver me timbers
- Walking the plank
