Scavenger Hunt for Mom

Mothers do everything for their children all year round. So why not celebrate Mommy on her special day with a fun family afternoon full of games and laughter?

Our mommy scavenger hunts are perfect for this occasion.

I made one template with pictures for smaller children to play with and the other mom hunts with written words for older children and grown-ups.

Both include the same items so you can mix them up and give every age group the matching scavenger hunt template.

This way the whole family can play together, nobody is excluded and no one is bored while playing.

Our scavenger hunt ideas for moms are really great, you can use them for Mother’s Day or even as a birthday scavenger hunt.

I also made a plain template for you to fill with your own Mother’s Day scavenger hunt clues, riddles, rhymes, and questions.

How Do You Do a Mother’s Day Scavenger Hunt

But before we get started let’s clarify a couple of questions first. You might wonder what even a scavenger hunt is and how to play it.

Let me explain it to you.

What Is a Scavenger Hunt?

A scavenger hunt is a game played with several players. Typically the participants have to collect a number of miscellaneous objects or at least find them.

Scavenger Hunt Rules

Our Mother’s Day scavenger hunt works like any other scavenger hunt.

  2. Hand out every participant one of our scavenger hunt printables and a pencil. Small children should receive the one with pictures and the older players the one with the written words.
  3. Set a timer to an agreed time.
  4. Now everyone has to go through your house and search for the listed items.
  5. Once the player finds the item, mark it off the list.
  6. The participant who found all items first wins.

If you want to make it more interesting, prepare a small gift for the winner. It will motivate everyone to play along!

Benefits of Scavenger Hunts

Did you know scavenger hunts have many benefits for the young and old? They actually do. Here is a list of the benefits of scavenger hunts for you:

  • Problem-Solving Skills
  • Easy to Customize
  • Exercise both body and mind
  • Enforce Teamwork

Not only do scavenger hunts your children build problem-solving skills, but they are also easily adjustable for parents to make them more interesting.

Do your children like dinosaurs?

Create a dinosaur scavenger hunt for their next birthday.

Also, the difficulty level can be adjusted as needed. For example either play your scavenger hunt with pictures, written words, rhymes, questions, and riddles depending on your children’s age.

Also, does a scavenger hunt train your body and mind?

Your mind is challenged by finding the listed items and searching for a strategy to do so. Your problem-solving skills are in good use here.

On the other side to find your objects you will have to move around and it is good exercise for your body.

Group scavenger hunts also help to teach teamwork.

They are a great activity for school or birthday parties with a larger number of players.

Build a team and try to solve the problem together. Your social skills are in need during this fun team-building exercise.
