Scavenger Hunts and List for Kids
Scavenger hunts are some of our favorites. You won't want to miss some of our other popular scavenger hunts including; Color Scavenger Hunt, Nature Scavenger Hunt, Summer Bucket List, and Camping Scavenger Hunt.
Indoor scavenger hunt for kids
Now is the time to be thinking outside the box on all sorts of activities for the upcoming summer months. While it's without a doubt that the kids will want to be outside exploring nature (outdoor scavenger hunt), there is also the understanding that there are a lot of things to do inside, too.
Because let's face it...you never know when Mother Nature will strike and rainy days keep everyone cooped up inside for days on end. It's a good idea to have this free printable indoor scavenger hunt on hand and ready for the next time bad weather days hit.
Scavenger Hunt For Kids At Home
I am a big advocate of scavenger hunts. Not only do they get the kids up and moving, but they're also a way to add some fun and excitement easily to the day as well.
And while we've had some fun with this Color Scavenger Hunt many times, it's also fun to have a hunt for random items around the house, too!
Use it during the nighttime and have a flashlight hunt
Flashlight hunts are the best! Using a flashlight to find objects around the house just adds a whole new element of fun and surprise. Not to mention, the kids think it's pretty great, too!
You don't even have to really change up the items that they're looking for because the darkness and beam of a flashlight is an easy activity to do for you. Different ways to look for the same list of things.
Family Game Night
Are you ever really too old to join in on a simple scavenger hunt? I think not! Instead of just leaving all the searching fun up to the kids, join in with them and see what you can find!
You can even pair up members of the family and go head to head and see which "team" is victorious. Have a prize ready because the winner is going to want something to show off their win!
Branch off and add in more items to find
Even though this free printable scavenger hunt is full of great items to find, you can always add more to it easily. Just print it off and write in some other really cool items that the kids need to look for around the house. (and if you're really creative, tie in some chores with it as well such as "penny at the bottom of the dirty dishes in the sink" - but to get the full points, those dishes need to be cleaned first! LOL).
It's like making your own scavenger hunt each time.

Indoor Scavenger Hunt Questions
Now that you are ready to have an indoor scavenger hunt, here are a few questions you might have.
The easiest way to do this scavenger hunt virtually is to email out this indoor scavenger hunt list. Then set a timer and make each person run and find one item on the list at a time. Then the first person back wins.
Typically it should run between 30 to 45 minutes. If you would like for it to run quicker, make sure to place each of the items on the list is easy to find places around the house. If you would like for it to last longer, I recommend having them bring each item back to you to check it off.
The rules for the indoor scavenger hunt can be however you want to set them up. If you are running it virtually, I recommend having each player bring back each item before moving on to the next. If you are running at home and want them to find all the items before coming back, set the rules for that.
