Scavenger hunt

Scavenger hunts are a fantastic way to get your girls outdoors and challenge them with fun tasks at the same time.

The first thing you need to do is pick a theme – this could be anything from Easter to pirates or autumn. Then you choose your location – this could be urban or rural – and give your players a list of items they need to find or challenges they need to complete, such as taking a selfie with something or counting the number of gargoyles on a church.

You can also add in ‘bonus’ challenges to make it even more fun – this could include a task that requires extra ingenuity or creativity, like making an Easter bunny out of natural materials or fitting into a small space like a phone booth.

Finally, set a time limit and make sure any rules – like behaviour expected or places the teams are not allowed to go – are clear.

The team with the most points wins – they’ll be extra keen to do well if you award a fun prize!
