How to Play a Fun Halloween Scavenger Hunt Game

Use this printable Halloween scavenger hunt as a Halloween Party game or as a fun activity while Trick or Treating! Fun for kids, teens, and adults!

What’s the best thing about September? That October is less than 30 days away! wink No disrespect to September, but October is one of the most pleasant months of the year. In Kentucky, it actually starts to feel like fall during October (whereas, September is still a bit toasty) and, of course, there is Halloween! The spooky holiday is a favorite in our house and we can’t wait to give the new Halloween Scavenger Hunt a try.

How to Play a Halloween Scavenger Hunt

So, how you do you play a Halloween Scavenger Hunt? Well, be creative! There are so many ways, but here are a few of my favorite scavenger hunt ideas:

  • Car Ride Halloween Scavenger Hunt – Load up in a car and drive around town to look at Halloween decorations. Work together, or compete, to see who can mark off the most Halloween items from the board.
  • Halloween Scavenger Hunt Party Game – At a festively decorated Halloween Party, challenge guests to search the house in order to find as many Halloween items as they can (great for school Halloween parties, too!).
  • Trick or Treat Scavenger Hunt – Add a little more fun to taking the kids Trick or Treating. The adults (and teens!) can compete in a friendly competition along the Trick or Treat route, while the kids are collecting candy.
  • Halloween Photo Scavenger Hunt – Great for adults, send them around town to capture photos of the Halloween decor with their smartphones. Allot extra points when a person is in the photo, too, or require entire groups be in the photo with each item listed on the Halloween Scavenger Hunt.

Did you know? All of our Scavenger Hunt Games include the picture and the word so that any kid can play, even if they haven’t learned to read.

Though the Halloween items are a mix of scary (vampires, mummies, and witches, oh my!)  and fun, the brightly colored graphics are kid-friendly… and sure to make you smile.

For a bit of extra color, grab a set of colored pencils to complete the scavenger hunt. A happy combo of colorful prints and pencils is perfect for a party, too!
