HOW TO PLAY A DISNEY SCAVENGER HUNT
So, how do you play a Disney Scavenger Hunt? Feel free to be creative, but this is the most common way to play:
- First, give each family member a scavenger hunt.
- Next, depending on the ages of the participants, choose to either:
- work as a team to find the items listed, or
- compete to find the items.
- When an item is found, mark it off the list.
- The game is over when either:
- a participant completes the entire list, or
- the allotted time (determined by you!) ends.
- If you choose to end the game before a participant completes the entire list, then the winner is the participant who has marked the most items.
