One Color Mall Scavenger Hunt
Fun And Fabulous One Color Mall Scavenger Hunt
The Perfect Teen Scavenger Hunt!
The Mall Scavenger Hunt that focuses upon finding things that are one color can be great fun and is ideal for a kids birthday party, or a tween or teen get together. This type of scavenger hunt requires speed, teamwork, organization, and an eye for spotting what you need.
Kids usually enjoy going to the mall and this hunt will give them excuse to enjoy their surroundings, have a great time, and there's no need for them to spend any money. However, because this hunt is going to be in a public place, you'll definitely want to establish appropriate ground rules in order to keep everyone in line. First off, assess the kids who would be participating in the hunt and determine whether they have the kind of personality that knows how to conduct themselves in a public situation such as this without getting too carried away, hence being a nuisance to others.
If your kids pass your assessment test, then it's time to get your ducks in a row so the hunt can begin. You'll need to start by picking out a mall. Once that is done, you'll need to develop a list of items for the kids to attempt to secure. To help you in this endeavor, I've created a list of items that you may pick and choose from, along with adding your own items that might be specific to the mall you have selected.

Now that you have your one color mall scavenger hunt list completed, you can divide your group into teams. Place slips of paper, with a primary color listed on each piece, in a bag and have a person from each team draw out one of the papers. Each team will then need to photograph the items on their list in that particular color. No two teams will gather items in the same color. To make things more interesting you could select colors that are the traditional red, blue, green, and yellow and go with other colors like lavender, turquoise, lime green, etc.
Provide the teams with the list of items they need to photograph. Each team needs to have a digital, phone, or Polaroid camera to document their finds. The teams try to find the items in various stores within the allotted time. No two items may come from the same store. The teams must record the stores each item is found in, and take a photo of each item.
Be sure you set some rules for your one color mall scavenger hunt like:
- Choosing a day when the mall isn’t busy, and be sure to avoid doing this hunt around Christmas.
- No stopping to shop.
- No taking time out to eat.
- No heading to see a movie at the theater.
- No visiting the arcade to play games.
- Ensure everyone knows to use good behavior – no running or yelling while in the mall.
