We made the clues so that you can make them hard or easy.

With words like “close to” or “by” you can put it right beside the clue hint or you can put it in a little more tricky spot.

For example, this clue card you could place the next clue inside a book if you want to make it a little more difficult! Or for younger kids, simply place on top or beside their favorite book.

How to Set-Up the Halloween Scavenger Hunt

First print off the clue cards (link to the free printable below).

  1. Hide the 2nd clue first, starting somewhere where the kids go to get snacks.
  2. Hide the next clue somewhere under the dinner table.
  3. Continue to hide all of the clue cards based on the previous clue hints until you are left with the last one.
  4. For the last prize, hide something in front of the front door or outside the front door.
  5. If you want to make the scavenger hunt even longer, you can add extra cards of your own before the last clue.
  6. When you’re ready to start the hunt, hand the first clue to your kids.

    Hi! I am a former preschool aid and daycare owner. I now have grand kids and great nieces and nephews. We are all loving your free printables and I recently ordered your first crafts book from Amazon. Can’t wait to get it in the mail and start repurposing things with my littles!
    I found an easy way to be able to reuse and protect the bingo sheets is to put them into snack sized Zip Lok baggies. They fit perfectly, can be written on with dry-erase markers, and can be wiped off with disinfectant wipes to keep them clean.

    How adorable! Thank you so much. I have two kids and I will have one do the first 5 clues and the other do the second 5, and they can do the final 2 together.
