This scavenger hunt challenges kids to see ordinary things through the eyes of a being from another planet. Plan ahead for a party favorite!
With your family, make a list of items that scavenger hunters can collect in your home, playground, or backyard (rocks, pieces of bark, clover). Write your list with Crayola® Washable Markers.
Create alien names for ordinary objects (rocks are planet base, bark is foliage flakes, clover is roundoid plants). Write those names on your list.
With markers, write the list of items to be hunted on the front of white paper lunch bags. Each bag might have a different list or different quantities of each alien item. Add sketches to give clues about each item.
Decorate around the list and sides of the bag. Crayola MiniStampers are great for this. Or you may want to carve an alien head into a soft eraser with a serrated plastic knife to create a stamp. Color the surface of the stamp with markers, then press on t
To play the game, give each scavenger hunter a bag and the challenge to help aliens find and collect the items listed. Encourage children to work together to figure out what each item is.
