During the circuit breaker*, I've had lots of fun connecting with friends over Zoom for virtual bingo and trivia game nights. Within these games there were some scavenger hunt-like challenges giving me the idea for a stand-alone, family-friendly scavenger hunt.
I've created a list of 35 things to do/find. Try the hunt with your immediate family or expand the fun over video and compete with other households. All you need is your phone and a good eye.
Use your phone to take photos of the objects or to web search stuff. First person to come up with the object, wins a point. Most points at the end of the game wins. For younger kids, try breaking the list into sections for a few nights of fun. Try customizing it for your own family and friends by including familiar objects and inside jokes. Get creative and have fun!
