It is Halloween night.

You are going from house to house, trick or treating.

In my neighborhood, sometimes there is a distance between houses that are participating in giving out candy. There is no shortage or kids trick or treating though!

Last Halloween, while our family was out trick or treating, we often came across a group of teenagers. They were going around the neighborhood and  instead of going trick or treating, they were on a Halloween scavenger hunt.

Instead of looking for items, like in a regular scavenger hunt, these hunters were looking for specific costumes on trick or treaters who were roaming the neighborhood. (Here are ideas if you are looking for a more traditional Halloween themed scavenger hunt)

I thought this would make a great idea for teens or as an addition to Halloween night activities.

Here are some ideas that were on their list, as well as a few of my own:

  • Princess
  • Luke Skywalker
  • Darth Vadar
  • Pokemon
  • Vampire
  • Dorothy from Wizard of Oz
  • Red Riding Hood
