How to prepare for the scavenger hunt

Getting ready for the scavenger hunt is a key step to making it a success.

These Halloween candy hunt clues are free to print but are for personal use only. Scroll to the bottom of the page for the instant pdf download.

You can print the clues on copy paper, but I recommend using cardstock. Then cut out each of the 12 clues. On the second page, I have included some suggestions on where you can hide them.

All of these printable clues are to be hidden inside the home, and they are all generic enough that all homes will have a place to hide them.

Planning is important. Think about where you’ll hide the cards and the order in which kids will find them. This will make the game more enjoyable and organized.

Lastly, but possibly most importantly you need the kid’s Halloween candy that you can hide with the last clue!
