Scavenger Hunt

Challenge your Beavers/Cubs/Scouts/Explorers to take part in a scavenger hunt at home during the virtual meeting. You could assign points for each item gathered or even a prize.

Below is a sample list of items you could ask YP to gather (Edit for your age range). You may want to give this entire list at once or give them a few items at a time. You could even challenge them in groups rather than individuals to encourage teamwork to see which team can find the list between them first!

  • A Paperclip
  • A Safety Pin
  • A Roll of cellotape
  • A napkin
  • A Toilet roll 🙂
  • A duster
  • A spool of sewing cotton
  • A screw
  • A newspaper
  • A sticking plaster
  • A pair of chopsticks
  • A postage stamp
  • An Original TV remote (Not your set-top box)
  • An alarm clock
  • A shopping receipt
  • A rubber band
  • A Crayon 
  • A 9v square battery (don’t disable the smoke alarm)
  • A post it note
  • Your favourite toy

Why not give points for unique items that others haven’t got?
