Here’s a fun game that’s great for people of any age – a car scavenger hunt, complete with a free printable list.
Here are some ideas for how to play this game:
- List of different cars (see below)
- Cameras (optional)
This scavenger hunt can be played individually, in pairs or in small teams – whatever works best for your group.
Give each of the players / teams a copy of the car list and a pen. Explain that their task is to try to find as many of the different cars as they can.
Some cars are more common than others, so each make will earn 1, 2 or 3 points based on how likely they are to see one – see the list below for a breakdown of how to score them.
There are several different ways this can be played, so here are some suggestions:
- Road Trip – If you’re going on a summer, Thanksgiving or Christmas road trip, try to find all the cars while on your journey.
- Grocery Store / Mall - To make a trip to the grocery store or mall more interesting for your kids, have them look around the parking lot to see how many makes of car they can spot.
- Photo – Make sure each player / team has a camera (cell phone cameras are fine) and send them off to look for the cars. When they find each one, they should take a photo of the car make on the back of the car as evidence.
