For a fun 10th birthday party, my friend Melissa organized a mall scavenger hunt for her daughter.
She called it "Mall Madness."
She divided everyone up into teams, and each team had an adult or teenager as a chaperone. Each team was also given an amount of money that should cover any items they needed to purchase. They searched for items on a list and met up at a certain time for cake and to see who had done what.
If you do a scavenger hunt at the mall, you'll want to adapt these clues to things that are in your own mall.
To make it a little easier, I've included her list here for you as a guide. Take this list of ideas, and then walk thru your own mall to see which of these you can use and which you can adapt for your own scavenger hunt at the mall.
I think it is important to have a chaperone with the kids. Otherwise, I've seen groups of kids who go a bit crazy and store managers will chase them out of their stores! For teen scavenger hunts who will be going on their own, just remind everyone to be respectful at whatever business they visit and try not be disruptive.
