How to do a Halloween Savenger Hunt?

We have shared a Halloween Scavenger Hunt Printable before. The idea is simple, print of a list of “things to find” and send the kids off to find as many as possible to tick off the list. You can play it by either “finding just one of each” or by finding as many of the same item as you can. Points awarded for each one. TODAY’s Halloween Cootie Catcher Scavenger Hunt is slightly different, as you can ALSO play it indoors. We have created a set of printable tokens, that the parent or teacher can hide for the children to find. Alternatively, use it to go outside and look at the neighbourhood Halloween decorations.. or go for a Halloween Drive. A lovely Halloween Activity for all the family.

Can you use this for a Halloween Candy Hunt?

Cootie Catcher

Yes! If you are looking for alternatives to trick or treating, then using our Halloween Cootie Catcher Scavenger Hunt printables and tokens to hide is the perfect Halloween Candy Hunt for your kids. Tape a candy to each token that the children have to find. Brilliant!
