Scavenger Hunt With a Twist


This ain’t yer grandma’s Scavenger Hunt – but it could be! Split students into teams, assigning a youth leader to follow them around. Provide students with a list of unusual items that they need to get from people’s homes or businesses. Your list could include toilet paper, a drink, a bug, soap, a kiss on the elbow, toast, a tack, etc.; stuff people normally wouldn’t ask for.

The bonus item is a grandmother. All of the items have to be brought back to your meeting area within a half-hour – even Grandma. You’ll be surprised how many grandmas are willing to help.

If possible, get someone’s grandmother from the other team without them knowing it (the team, not the grandmother)!
