How Do You Play a Virtual Scavenger Hunt
One of the easiest games to play on zoom with kids is Scavenger Hunts. They will keep all the kids engaged and having fun which can be a real challenge when hosting kids virtually.
There are two ways to play Zoom Scavenger Hunts. One is for teachers or virtual birthday parties. The second option is for family and group zoom parties.
Scavenger Hunts for Teachers or Virtual Birthday Parties
Here is how to play a virtual scavenger hunt in classrooms and parties.
- Print out the Scavenger Hunt List & decide how many items you want the kids to search for.
- Set a Timer for the Kids to Search – 30-60 Seconds
- Pick an item you want the kids to search for first. After you read the item the kids then have to find the item in your set time.
- Send the kids off to find the item
- When the timer goes off kids have to be back in their seats with the item. Or at least back to their seats.
- Have the kids hold up the item for you to see
- If you want it to be competitive keep a list of which child made it back the fastest with each item. At the end of the game see who won the most rounds.
This would also be a great Rainy Day Activity when you’re stuck at home. Your kids will love running around the house trying to find all these items. You don’t have to be virtual to play.
Zoom Scavenger Hunts for Big Groups of Family or Friends
If you are planning to host a group Zoom with family or friends have each family come up with a list of their own scavenger hunt items.
I suggest that each family makes a scavenger hunt list with 5 items. Then all the families will take turns reading off their list to the group. The rest of the families will have 2 minutes to find all 5 list items.
Go through all the family groups to find each scavenger hunt list. Making the game with quick rounds of 5 items will help it from dragging on and keep it exciting.
The first family back with all the items wins the round. Add some competition to it by seeing which family won the most rounds.
