DIY: Halloween Scavenger Hunt Bingo
Who’s excited for Halloween?!
You can’t see me, but I’m raising my arm as high as I can. Why? Because Halloween is my favorite holiday!
While browsing the internets (mostly Pinterest) for fun activities for the littles, I saw many scavenger hunts and bingos, separate. So I thought to myself, wouldn’t it be fun if we could have both at the same time?!
This is what I came I came up with. I created 5 card versions with different combinations so multiple people can play at once and so it can be played more than once, you know kinda like regular bingo… 😀
It was relatively easy to come up with the first 15 items and then I actually had to look around and see what our neighbors have put up to get the rest of the items from real-life spottings!
So, “how does it work”, you ask?
Well, I’m glad you asked!
This Halloween scavenger hunt bingo works like a what it sounds. Scavenge and mark your cards! Hahaha. But really. This would work perfectly both driving around or while taking a walk! Start in your neighborhood and if the finding gets tricky or you want to start a new game, venture to a neighboring community or you know, where ever the festive areas are.
You play by walking or driving around a location that is decorated, for example your neighborhood. Players then call out the item they’ve spotted and then after the spotting has been confirmed (because there’s no cheating!), everyone would mark it off on their card. First player to get a line, wins!
For multiple games I suggest using different color highlighters or writing utensil of your choice. I picked highlighters because then it’s still easy to see what’s in the box no matter how big or small the marking is. By using different colors, you would be able to play multiple games with the same cards without having to print more.
For example, let’s say I use pink, hubby uses blue, and my little uses green. When starting our second game, we would trade cards at random (making sure we don’t get the same one). I then would now have the one with blue markings, hubby has the one with green and my little has the one with pink markings. Now as we mark the cards in the new game, we won’t be confused as to wether or not we had already marked something. I would now be marking pink on the card that has the blue markings, and etc.
And if the game gets too easy, maybe wait until someone gets 2 or more lines complete before declaring a winner!
I had so much fun putting this together and I really hope you enjoy and share with everyone you know! 😀
