Getting Down To Basics with Teams
Factors To Consider When Planning For An Easter Themed Scavenger Hunt.
Participating in a scavenger hunt is a great way to spend time with friends and learn new things. With planning for Easter, most people are thinking of organizing a scavenger hunt as one of the fun activities especially for the children to take part in. For the longest time, scavenger hunts during Easter often involve the Easter eggs and the Easter bunny, but this is not the only way to organize an Easter scavenger hunt. To make children look forward to the Easter scavenger hunt, thinking out the box will help.
Consider changing the venue for the Easter scavenger hunt. More children will be eager to participate in the hut if you change the venue of the hunt from indoors to outdoors and vice versa. You can make the hunt feel different by changing the time it usually happens. if you choose to do your hunt at night you can substitute the eggs with glow in the dark sticks or give the children flash lights to look for the items with.
The children can learn more if you leave them clues that are riddled whose answers are the items they are looking for. Teach the children more about Easter by leaving them items that bear significance to Easter. Have a short discussion with the children after the hunt is over to see what the learned from the hunt. Using memory verses is a great way to help jog the children’s memory, especially the older ones.
Instead of having the children look for items, have them look for more specific items. Roles can be reversed so that it’s the parents that go for the hunt while children are in charge of hiding the items. Instead of looking for a eggs, have puzzle pieces hidden and the children have to find the other pieces and stick them together thus learning the importance of teamwork. Make the game more interesting, have a reward at the end of the game for all participants in the games. Use simpler hints when dealing with the younger children so they do not have a hard time trying to understand what you mean and if possible use pictures for them to understand. Many children love to play dress up and having them all dressed up in Easter-themed clothes for the scavenger hunt is a fun activity to add to the entire scavenger hunt idea.
There are various things you need to consider before organizing a scavenger hunt. The age of the children you are organizing the hunt or will play a major role on how you organize the hunt. What might seem like fun to the older kids might be boring or complex to the younger ones. The main aim of organizing the scavenger activity should be so that the children have fun. Organize for activities that everyone can participate in and ensure that everyone can participate in the activities organized. When organizing the hunt have a time set so it does not take to long or it is not so fast.
