A few weeks ago, GoodGrandma℠ had birthday party for daughter Lauren. We had no intention of posting about the party, but made a big mistake! During the scavenger hunt, a cute grandma and grandpa stopped to inquire what we were doing. They liked our IDEA and wanted to do a scavenger hunt with their family. We offered to email the information and had them write down their email on a party clue paper. Once we finished the scavenger hunt, we went to the food court to eat. I forgot about the email and tossed the papers in the trash. Luckily, we mentioned GoodGrandma.com, a place for GOOD IDEAS! So, here’s to hoping they see this post!
Here’s the IDEA; a mall picture savager hunt good for birthday parties or an activity with the grandkids. Prior to the hunt, we created group texts for each team. We had three groups. We started by discussing the rules and the importance of walking and being polite. Then, we sent a picture of the first clue to each group. Each team had the same clues, but in a different order. With each clue the teams had to first, solve the riddle, then take a selfie with the store sign behind them. They would then send the selfie to us, and if it was the correct location we would send a picture of the next clue. We had the teams going from one end of the mall to the other. 😂 With 25 clues, and lots of walking, it took about an hour or more to complete.
Scavenger Hunt Rules
- EXERCISE COMMON COURTESY WHEN INTERACTING WITH THE PUBLIC. NO RUNNING, EVER!!!
- TEAMS CAN’T SPLIT UP, STAY TOGETHER!
- ALL BUT ONE PERSON MUST BE IN THE PICTURE! TAKE TURNS TAKING THE PICTURE OR TAKE A SELFIE.
- ALL PICTURES ARE IN FRONT OF THE STORE WITH THE STORE SIGN BEHIND YOU.
- THE FIRST CLUE WILL BE SENT TO EACH TEAM AND THEN WE WILL SAY, “GO!”
- SEND EACH PICTURE TO COLLEEN FOR THE NEXT CLUE!
- START & FINISH AT LODGE COURT IN FRONT OF RC WILLEY.
