Newspaper Scavenger Hunt Guaranteed To Make The Headlines!
Fun And Fabulous Newspaper Scavenger Hunt
Just The Hunt That's Classified for Success!
A newspaper type scavenger hunt is the perfect activity for a party or when you've got kids that are bored and looking for something "fun" to do.
This hunt can be played individually or you can break the kids down into teams and have them work together. This is also a great activity when you need to keep the kids close at hand and don't wish to turn them loose outside, but you don't have the time to be directly engaged in an activity with them.
To get started creating a newspaper scavenger hunt , all you need are a bunch of newspapers, basically enough so you can give each person or team a newspaper and a pair of scissors. If possible, plan ahead and stock up on your newspapers, otherwise you might have to hit your neighbors up for their extras. As I live in a small city, I know our local newspaper can be very small and might not contain all the items that you're seeking or they might be too easy to find. Therefore, if possible, try to secure newspapers from larger cities so the hunt can be a bit more challenging.
At any rate, listed below are some suggested photos, ads, notices, etc. for all your little scavengers to find in their newspapers.
To make things a little more challenging for your newspaper scavenger hunt, dismantle numerous newspapers so the pages are all individual and put them into the center of the table. Then only allow people to grab one piece of newspaper at a time, review it for whatever they are looking for, return it to the pile and grab another, etc. An individual is never allowed to have more than one piece of newspaper at a time. If you are playing in teams, then each team member is only allowed to have one newspaper at a time.
