It is great fun and gives the participants the feeling of adventure.
In the classic scavenger hunt, one or two “foxes” are sent out, the the Lay the track.
To do this, they sprinkle pieces of paper over and over to mark the way.
The “hunters” then start the scavenger hunt at intervals.
They follow the tracks or the trail and aim to find the "foxes".
In the end i.e. a treasure may be waving at the destination.
There are of course different types of scavenger hunts.
Here is our guide to scavenger hunt.
Material: road chalk, small stones, a notepad with notes, pens, pieces of paper, sawdust or the like to put on the track, scotch tape roller or teas crepe roll
Before the scavenger hunt one should the area in which it should take place and go the possible ways to be able to quickly put the track on the hunt itself and to keep the goal in mind.
On the day of the scavenger hunt, all players meet at the starting point.
They agree who the two "foxes" are.
On a children’s birthday scavenger hunt, it is advisable for a parent or older sibling to put the trail together with a child or to take on the role of "foxes".
They go ahead and mark the path about every twenty to thirty steps by laying tracks.
Traces can be arrows and signs painted on with chalk.
You can also use certain stones or small piles of sawdust as identification.
Arrows and notes painted on sticky notes can also be weighted down with stones or attached to things and show the “hunters” the way.
Now pioneering traces are being laid or painted.
Here, however, the "foxes" should also include misleading information such as arrows pointing in two directions e.g. straight ahead and to the left.
These different directions make the scavenger hunt really interesting and tricky and the hunters have to make an effort to find the right way.
The two "foxes" can also lay a "dead trail".
That means a “fox” lays tracks in a possible direction, which is wrong, however, and thus distracts from the main track.
After approx. 5-10 tracks or sawdust piles or similar. the (wrong) trail suddenly ends.
The "hunters" later have to go back a little bit the way they have already walked until they can pick up the right track again.
The other “fox” meanwhile continues to leave tracks on the main track.
The second "fox" comes back here and helps him on the main track.
The more "dead tracks" are made, the more demanding and difficult the scavenger hunt is.
The "hunters" start 30 minutes after the "foxes" at the starting point and collect the trail together.
When it comes to scavenger hunts, team spirit and consultation are required to get to the destination together.
