What a hit!

A kid's scavenger hunt designed for a house party/neighborhood - Operation Kovert Kids. Age 7 to age 13.

Product Average Rating: 3.5 of 5
"What a hit! I ordered the Hunt one week before my son's birthday and was able to read, customize, purchase items and set up before the party. No stress, and the hunt went off without a hitch. Everyone had a blast. We had a mix of ages 10-13 yrs old even mix of boys and girls even my 4 yr old had fun. Since my son is getting older it was getting harder to find activities that will entertain them. With Kovert Kids, I did not have to keep things going or convince them to participate. They all jumped in feet first and had a blast the whole time and as parents arrived their kids was telling them in breathless voices how much fun they had and how they had to do this or when this kid did that. "IT WAS SO COOL" was said over and over. Every kid thanked me for the awesome time so from them and me THANK YOU. I can't wait until my son gets in from school to hear the school buzz. Ha ha."

This scavenger hunt is designed with a house full of kids (ages 7-13) in mind. It's a great addition to any kids' party (birthday, Halloween, etc.) It has enough interesting activities (missions for the kids to accomplish) and options to fit anyone's budget and time frame. It will work in any house but it's best to have access to a yard and a neighborhood if possible just to expand the playing area so the kids don't get in each other's way.

The kids will be divided into teams (a minimum of 4 to a maximum of 10 kids per team). Each team will receive a clue collection bag containing a digital camera their challenge sheet - the hunt itself - and various supplies. The kids will then embark on the scavenger hunt, taking pictures, obtaining specific items and completing various projects - all worth valuable points. To customize the scavenger hunt, you can easily add additional items, pictures and projects to the list. Use our games as templates to build your own.

LENGTH OF THE HUNT: About 2 hours.

Scavenger hunt challenges are broken down into 3 categories: pictures (10), projects (2-3) and item collection (about 11). The full scavenger hunt will have detailed instructions and other options/alternatives to consider if you don't like or can't use the challenges as designed.
Photo example: Solve this riddle and then take a picture of your most dramatic team member doing something dramatic at the location. Riddle: They go up and down but they never move. (Answer: stairs). Note: not all challenges are in riddle form.
Collections examples:
Solve this riddle and collect the item: What is something that runs but never walks? (Answer: water). Note: not all challenges are in riddle form.
Collect some dog food kibble/nuggets. (Don't have dog food? Change it to cat food or bird seed - see how easy it is to edit?)
Project example: Go to the freezer and take out something that definitely doesn't belong there. Follow the instructions. (They will need to follow the clues to collect pieces of a puzzle.) Note: not all challenges are in riddle form.

THE WINNING TEAM: We don't recommend a "winning" team. We recommend you award each team a special prize for their efforts: best photos, best projects, most creative, most team spirit - whatever "award category" you come up with to recognize their efforts as you observe them . It's important that there are no "losers".


What if you only have a few kids participating in this scavenger hunt? Instead of dividing them into teams, you can keep them all on one team and have them race against the clock, giving the single team a time limit to complete each section of the hunt, report back to you and bribe you for the next section and so on until the hunt is complete.

PRE-HUNT PREP TIME: For up to 6 teams, you can put our scavenger hunts together in about 6 hours (includes shopping for supplies, reading the scavenger hunt and prepping the materials); as you add teams, you'll need to add time to the pre-hunt prep. You mostly need to print (and perhaps edit) the documents included with the kit, pack the collection bags and you'll need to shop for team prizes, digital cameras or cell phones which take photos, as well as other inexpensive supplies like clipboards, project items and such. Our facilitator guide provides a supply checklist for you. *Check out Amazon or E-Bay online. You can also buy these cameras/film at your local discount department or drug store.
