Full Answer

Scavenger hunts are a way to get people to loosen up and to put them into a competitive spirit. A Halloween scavenger hunt can be done at a Halloween party or it can be done as a stand-alone event because of the time that it takes to complete the scavenger hunt. Depending on the age of the people who are participating, it may be more difficult to gather all of the items for the hunt. Organizers of the hunt might choose to allow participants to take pictures of the items that they have found to save the trouble of having to haul all of their spoils back to the starting point. If the items need to be physically brought back, participants should be reminded that the items should not be stolen.
