Fun Event & Activity Ideas
Kind of like the Disposable Camera Rally on this Events page, this is a scavenger hunt where each team has a camera (disposable or not) and a vehicle to get around town in (with adult leader driving). Give them a list of items, worth different points, to get a picture of, get, or do. You can develop the pictures at a one-hour place and see results that evening, or develop the pictures for a PowerPoint slide presentation (many places will develop pictures on CD) the next week. Winners can be served pizza and pop first by losers.
For these points, take a picture of…
20 a tree in bloom
20 a farm animal
20 a "House For Sale" Sign
30 a license plate from Ohio or Kentucky
30 a "CLOSED" sign on a business's door
30 a church van or bus (not your own)
30 a house with a car parked in the yard
40 a house with 3 cars parked in the driveway
40 any type of scoreboard
50 a house that still has Christmas decorations
