Looking for some fun scavenger hunt ideas for the family? If so, here are 20 to start you off!

We are always on the lookout for fun scavenger hunt ideas. Our family’s love for scavenger hunts started when our oldest child was just 2-years-old (she 16 now, where did the time go?). I had made a fun scavenger hunt for Easter and we fell in love. She fell in love with going on the hunts, and I fell in love with watching her go on them. Add two wild and crazy (but totally fun and cute) boys to the mix, and this momma doesn’t have the time she once did to come up with all of those fun scavenger hunt ideas she once did.

Thankfully we can Google the ideas for our scavenger hunts now and let the creativity of others take over. Today I am sharing 20 fun scavenger hunt ideas for your family to enjoy together.
