Indoor Scavenger Hunt for Kids

Indoor Scavenger Hunt for Kids

Ali Randazzo |

Parents, we know that your little ones have A LOT of energy and perhaps not as much to do with it. To help, we’ve created a downloadable indoor scavenger hunt so kids can expend pent up energy and engage in imaginative play.

Toddlers and big kids alike will have a blast with this fun activity using common household items. We made sure to create large images and use words so that kids of all skill levels, from young children to new readers to older kids, can partake in the fun. As your kids get ready to play, here are a few ideas to spice up your scavenger hunt so it’s a new adventure every time.


1. Use as a Coloring Sheet

Have kids color in the items as they find them…much more fun than just a checkmark or crossing them out! Whether you play scavenger hunt or not, little ones can simply color in the objects using this downloadable as a coloring sheet. They will love coloring in objects that they recognize from around the house. Maybe they’ll make the stuffed animal look just like their own fuzzy friend!

2. Make Something Out of Everything Collected

This adds a fun twist to the mix. Once your child has gathered all of the items, see what they can make out of all of the objects. Small children might enjoy laying out all of the objects to make the first letter of their name or a basic shape like a circle or triangle. Older kids might want to set a scene or see how tall of a tower they can make. Either way, parents can take a photo of the final product to remember the adventure.

3. Extreme Scavenger Hunt

This is perfect for little ones to practice their searching skills. Parents, gather all of the items and then hide them in more unusual places for extra challenge. Instead of finding a piece of fruit on the kitchen counter, your child may find it under a pillow instead! Define boundaries depending on the level of difficulty you want. For example, one room is easier than one floor or the entire house! Hiding spots can be easy or hard too. Customize it for what works best for you and your family!

It’s not a bad idea to bring an adorable little red helper along to help your child collect all of the items. Happy hunting!
