If you have a teenager in your life, they aren’t going to want to spend Halloween with you, with their younger siblings, or handing out candy (this is just how they role). So, to make sure that they are at least somewhat occupied for the night, it might be a good idea to give them something to do that will make sure that they stay out of trouble (at least as much as any teen can stay out of trouble). Giving them a scavenger hunt to perform during the night will give them something to focus on, and you’ll be able to see what they come up with at the end of the night (and you might get an idea of how much they actually did during the night).
All you’ll need to supply is a copy of the list and a bag of some sort for them to be able to put their bounty in (for easy transferal back home so that you can see what they were able to find). Easy peasy. Then, send them out with at least one (or more) of their friends (and their camera phones), and they’ll be set.
Here’s the list:
An empty candy wrapper.
A popsicle stick.
A yellow leaf.
A used glow stick.
A plastic spider.
A pumpkin seed.
A recipe for pumpkin pie (complete with autograph of the person who gave it to you).
A flier for a Halloween function of some kind.
Christmas decorations of some kind.
A clove of garlic.
Black nail polish.
An orange crayon.
A black candle.
A paper ghost.
The autographs of 5 people dressed as celebrities.
Plastic Harry Potter glasses.
A paper cup with something Halloweenish printed on it.
A stick of gum.
3 matches or one empty Bic lighter.
1 square of toilet paper.
Go into a crowded area and sing a Christmas carol. Pictures or it didn’t happen.
High five a cashier at a store. Pictures or it didn’t happen.
Take a picture with one or more team members with a family of four or more.
Get a picture of a man with a mullet.
Take a photo of a person wearing a concert t-shirt.
Find 1 buy one, get one free coupon.
Take a picture of someone with a visible tattoo.
1 clean disposable toilet seat cover.
Get a stranger’s autograph.
Take a picture of entire team in or next to a tree.
Take a picture of at least two team members sliding down a slide.
Take a picture of graffiti that is already there.
