Did you know that May 24th was National Scavenger Hunt Day? There are so many random national holidays but we think they are so fun! Everyday is worth celebrating and we think that a scavenger hunt is a super fun way to spend an afternoon with friends and family. You can also turn it into an awesome random act of kindness. If you’ve never set up a scavenger hunt here are some simple steps!
Your scavenger hunt doesn’t have to lead to treasure or any kind of winnings. Sometimes the accomplishment of finishing the hunt is a prize in itself. But wouldn’t it be so much fun if it did lead to a prize!?!?! Over at the RAK Store we have so many nifty items that would make finding them at the end of the scavenger hunt a real treat! We think our RAK candy, a cool RAK t-shirt, or the RAK Disco Ball BlueTooth speaker would make stellar prizes. Or, you can go all out and get the entire RAK Pak!
Now’s the time to plan the route you want the scavenger hunt to go. Whether you are just doing it in the backyard, throughout the neighborhood, or through an entire city, panning is key. Think about where each clue will be hidden and where it will lead to next. Scout out each location and make sure it’s a good place to leave a clue!
Now that you know where you’ll be hiding your clues it’s time to write them. They can be basic instructions or you can have some fun and write some poetry.You can be mysterious and write a clue like: “Your first clue is this, it’s time to go. You’ll find clue two down below” It all
depends on your audience! Don’t forget to number the clues to help you and the scavenger hunters keep everything in order.
You’re almost done! Now it’s time to disperse your clues to their designated hiding spots. Make sure they’re secure and somewhere the hunter can find them, but not too easily. Don’t forget to include your prize at the end!!
See? What a fun way to RAK your friends and family! A scavenger hunt is a fun act of kindness activity for all ages because you can make it as easy or as hard as you want. You can also make it as small or as large as you want. Tag us in your #RAKScavengerHuntDay pictures on Instagram. We can’t wait to see them!
