Mid-winter Photography Scavenger Hunt


There are tons of things in and around your house and neighborhood that you probably don’t notice. Some are functional things used everyday and others only get used occasionally.  You and your friends can keep yourself active with a scavenger hunt inside and outside your house.

Scavenger hunts are easy. Just make a list of the things you need to find and the first person or team who completes the challenge wins! You can use a camera or phone to confirm you’ve seen the item. No cheating and copying images from the Internet. If no one finds all the items the person or team with the most finds wins!

Don’t tear up your house or your friend’s house looking for these things. Find them, photograph them and put them back where you found them.
