Trick-or-Treat Treasure Hunt ~ Halloween Scavenger Hunt
I have put together a fun follow-the-clues treasure hunt for your little party goers to fill their treat bags! Each clue will lead them to a different part of your home to pick up a treat or trinket and their next clue.
First, we’ve got to put together the clue pockets and clues! I came up with 8 clues for places that most homes have (I even made an alternate clue in case you live in a warm climate like us and don’t have a coat closet, ha!) and a thank you message that hosts can add to the last treat!
Next, you’ll need to make eight clue pockets:
Here is what you’ll need to make these cute little clue pockets:
Now the fun part!
Round up 8 household containers or pick up some festive metal pails to hold all the treat bag goodies at each stop.
Some suggestions: spider rings, plastic vampire teeth, stretchy skeletons, Halloween pencils, temporary tattoos, sticker sheets, candy/gum, fruit snacks, homemade sweet treats and glow-in-the-dark bracelets. (I got most of my treats/trinkets in the Target Dollar Spot and their Halloween section.)
Here are my treat stations:
|1 – Halloween sticker sheets, 2 – mini fruit roll ups, 3 – Halloween pencils, 4 – stretchy skeletons & vampire teeth|
|5 – matchbook treat pockets, 6 – lollipops, 7 – ghost seeds (see below!), 8 – glow-in-the-dark bracelets|
