If you’re interested in planning a scavenger hunt with a Beatles theme, you’ll love this idea!
How To Play
Make a list of songs by The Beatles that it would be possible for players to take photos of. If possible, make the list at least 15 songs long.
Players don’t necessarily have to take literal photos of the song titles – the fun part of this music scavenger hunt is seeing how they interpret them.
Using Yellow Submarine as an example, one player may manage to find a yellow submarine toy and take a photo of that, while another player may get a sub roll and cover it in yellow mustard.
For Paperback Writer, one player may take a photo of a novelist in a book store signing books, while another may take a photo with a pen in his own hand about to write on a book.

There are hundreds of Beatles songs that you could choose for this activity. To save you time though, we’ve listed 20 Beatles songs below that should lead to some extremely funny and creative photos by the players.
