Scavenger Hunts for Teens – Reader’s Tip #2

When you are in a small town or posted somewhere there isn’t a lot to do I would recommend a Teen Scavenger hunt.  We have been doing these with our children for their birthdays for several years.  The idea is to get them out of the house, challenging themselves to look foolish, learning to ask for help, find things independently, and find fun where they thought there wasn’t much.  Below is one of our lists although there were over 40 items and it usually takes about 1 – 2 hours.  While they are scavenging around the mall we are having a coffee and relaxing.

3rd Annual Mall Scavenger Hunt

1.)   What is the price of the solitaire ring in Birks window?

2.)   What colour ornaments are on the 3rd floor Christmas tree?

3.)   Name the four eyeshadows in the Rachel Glee set in Claire’s.
