Halloween Scavenger Hunt Ideas

If you want to REALLY up the fun factor, you can turn these free printable Halloween Scavenger Hunts into a super awesome activity that a bunch of neighborhood kids can enjoy!

Here are a few ideas:

Nighttime Scavenger Hunt with Flashlights

Use these printable Halloween scavenger hunts and organize a neighborhood walk with other families from your neighborhood. Have everyone bring flashlights, and set out at dusk to hunt for the items on the list!

Pumpkin Neighborhood Scavenger Hunt

Get your neighbors involved in these fun Halloween activities for kids! You can organize a neighborhood-wide pumpkin hunt for ALL of the neighborhood kids to participate!

Here are some ideas for how to organize a Halloween Scavenger Hunt in your neighborhood:

  • Find FREE Halloween pumpkin printables online here.
  • Print a bunch of pumpkin printables.
  • Distribute them in neighbors’ mailboxes with an instruction sheet for how they can participate.
  • Have neighbors color the pumpkin pictures and hang them in their windows. Make some REALLY hard to find so that the scavenger hunts are fun for adults and teens, too!
  • Offer prizes for kids that find the correct number of pumpkin pictures that are hidden in the neighborhood.

*This idea is pretty much the same as the neighborhood bear hunts that were popular a few months back, except Halloween themed!

Our neighborhood did an Easter version of this scavenger hunt with Easter Egg printables, and it was great FUN! My family and I really enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and trying to find all of the Easter eggs.

Drive Through Scavenger Hunt

Depending on where you live, late October may be a little too cold for a long walk outside. You can also enjoy these fun Halloween activities from the comfort of your nice, heated car.

Grab some hot chocolate and donuts, print out the hunts, and take your family for a drive to complete the Halloween Scavenger hunt.

This is a GREAT activity to add to your Fall Family Bucket List, too!

Easy, No Fuss Scavenger Hunt

Or, if planning a big, extravagant activity is just another thing to have to add to your to-do list, then just keep it simple!

You can just enjoy a neighborhood walk with your own family, admiring the Halloween decorations, and letting your kids check things off their lists.

However you decide to use these printable Halloween scavenger hunts, I’m sure this will be a fun Halloween activity that your whole family will enjoy!
