Families must then work together to complete the task before they can move on to the next clue. Fun, isn’t it?
HALLOWEEN SCAVENGER HUNT SETUP
Start by adding these colourful Halloween Scavenger Hunt bag covers to your five lunch bags. I used white lunch bags, but the traditional brown ones are perfect for the fall theme too! You can print the bag lids on cardboard packaging and attach them to the front of the bag, or you can print the design directly on the lunch bags. Woot woot! Super easy!

HALLOWEEN SCAVENGER HUNT CLUES

With pumpkins, stuffed animals and tricks – if you dare!
This Halloween hunt includes hint after hint,
But before moving on – the task you must do! …
All of the tips are written to guide your family to the places you find in a typical home, including:
LET’S START THE HUNTING GARBAGE MANUFACTURER!
Place all the clue bags in different places around the house as indicated in the clues. Except for the first clue, which explains the game, the order of the following clues doesn’t matter.
To end it all, place a special Halloween gift or treat at the very last spot on your hunt. You can use our printed gift tag to attach to the final prize. For Halloween, a fun prank or treat bag, their Halloween costume, or traditional Halloween treats are great!
When your family is ready to play, give them the first clue. When they find the clue bag, have them open the clue bag to reveal the activity. After completing the task, they can climb to the bottom of the bag to read the next clue.
Happy Ghost. .. I mean Hunt!
