If you are looking for an alternative to traditional Halloween festivities such as trick-or-treating, a Pumpkin Scavenger Hunt is the perfect idea!
Scavenger hunts are a fun way to get the family moving, getting some exercise and enjoying some fresh air outdoors.
How To Host A Pumpkin Scavenger Hunt In Your Neighborhood
With Halloween nearing, everyone is putting out decorated pumpkins so why not head out into your neighborhood to see what fun pumpkins you can find?
The idea behind a pumpkin scavenger hunt is that you and your neighbors will all decorate pumpkins and place them where they can visibly be seen from the sidewalk or road.
You then take the family on a walk (or drive if the weather is bad) around the neighborhood to see what sort of pumpkins you can find.
Will you find a scary pumpkin? A happy pumpkin? A tall pumpkin? A painted pumpkin? Or how about a glowing, lit up pumpkin?
You can even reach out to your neighbors on Facebook or Nextdoor and choose a date for your pumpkin hunt so everyone can get in on the fun!
We even made it super simple for you and your family to keep track of the pumpkins you find because we created a fun, free printable Pumpkin Scavenger Hunt Checklist.
Simply print this list and head out to find all the pumpkins on the list. Once you find them, circle or cross them off. The first person to cross of all the pumpkins on the list, gets a treat!
I hope you and your family enjoys this fun Halloween activity!
