Football Scavenger Hunt

Football Scavenger Hunt

Use observation and problem solving skills to figure out the clues in this scavenger hunt. Great for ages 6 and up. 

What you need:

  • Construction paper
  • Markers or crayons
  • Tape
  • Scissors
  • Prize bags for the winners (for example: stickers, activity books, coloring book)
Before kids arrive:

  1. Draw 10 football shapes on construction paper and cut them out.
  2. Number the footballs 1-10.
  3. Write down the clues on a piece of paper to give to the scavenger hunters or tell them one clue at a time as they solve each one.

  1. Hide the footballs around the house according to the provided clues or come up with your own clues and alternate hiding places. Tip: You may need a few pieces of tape to help attach footballs in one or two spots. 
  2. If you have enough kids to make 2 teams, hide 2 sets of different colored footballs so that each team has their own set of footballs to find.
  3. For motivation prepare a prize for each player for when all of the footballs are found.
