How to Play a Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt
Here’s how to play this fun Valentine’s Day game.
Grab Your FREE Printable Valentine’s Scavenger Hunt
The first step is to download your FREE Printable Scavenger Hunt and print it out. Make sure there is enough for each player to have their own list.
Make Sure to Have all the Scavenger Hunt Ideas
Take a look at the list and make sure you have all the items on the list. If not make a few out of construction paper and leave them around the house.
For instance, write LOVE on construction paper and hide it in an area they can find it. You could also draw some balloons or flowers or cut pictures out of magazines. The list doesn’t say they need to be real it could just be a picture of the items.
Go Over the Rules
Give a copy of the Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt to each player. Let them know the time limit to search and if they can count pictures of the items or need to find the actual items. Setting the rules before you start keeps there from being any arguing about the game.
Is there a Winner?
You can choose if you want this to be a competitive game or not. If you have younger children you might just want to let them search the house with a parent.
For older kids set a time limit to find all the items. The first player back with all the scavenger hunt ideas checked off is the winner.
Scavenger Hunt Prize Ideas
A Valentine’s Day prize at the end of the game is always fun. It can be something simple like Chocolate hearts or a box of Conversation Hearts. If your playing this as a school game give the kids some Valentine’s day pencils or erasers.
For competitive games, you’ll want a special prize for the winner. I suggest a bigger box of chocolates, a Valentine’s Day book, Stickers, or something you think your kids would be excited to win.
Now you’re ready to head out on your Valentine’s Day Scavenger Hunt with the kiddos.
