Here Is How You Play: 

Thanks to the amazing designs of our Diva Designer, Leah Aldous, all you have to do is print off the Halloween challenge printable located at the bottom of the post. She did an excellent job of incorporating all of the challenges and scavenger items while maintaining a classic halloween theme. I just love all her work!

Print off Leah’s beautiful printable for each team that is playing. This game can be played as a couple working together, couples vs. couples or as a family! There are so many options! 

The Halloween Challenge is divided into two sections. From either section, teams can earn points for completing the tasks listed. Each team can strategize HOW they want to earn their points, but the ultimate goal is to be the first team to earn 300 total points.

The first section, the photo scavenger hunt, allows the teams to earn points by photographing a specific halloween item. Each Halloween item listed is worth a set number of points.

For example, taking a picture of a real graveyard is worth 25 points but finding a tombstone with a birthdate before 1890 is worth is 50 points!

Challenges

In the second section, teams complete various Halloween-themed challenges in order to earn points. Rather than just taking a picture of an item, team members must DO something (usually embarrassing) to earn their points. The harder the challenge, the more points earned!

For example – writing the phrase “Trick or Treat” in candy corn and then having one team member stuff all the candies in their mouth is worth 30 points, but having your entire group dance to Michael Jackson’s Thriller (as close to the real moves as possible) is worth 45! And for any of you who have an inclination to cheat, video documentation is required as proof of these challenges!

After teams have earned their 300 points, have a meeting point where everyone can have some cocoa and share their pictures and videos together.

You could even have some fun halloween pumpkin recipes available for when everyone returns or maybe have everyone make a haunted gingerbread house

So – let the race begin! Gather up your spouse, your friends or your family and have a night of Halloween fun. This might just become a new Halloween tradition! 

AND – make sure to stop in to Leah’s site to thank her for this FREE printable!

  1. I love this! I’ve never thought about doing a scavenger hunt for Halloween! This is a perfect activity for scaredy-cats – like me – who want to avoid haunted houses!

  2. Gosh, our week is SO crazy this week with our softball tournament, but I’m going to see if we can find a bunch of couples to do this next weekend! Wish there was an invite to go with it! Such a fun idea!
