Need a fun game to play on New Year’s Eve? This New Year’s Eve Scavenger Hunt will be a hit!

Scavenger Hunts are always a win/win game at any parties or events because they keep kids busy and moving and they give the grown ups a few minutes to regroup and take a chill.

We love hunts and I am always trying to come up with a new reason to make one! They are easy to set up and something you can repeat again and again!

Why are Scavenger Hunts good for kids?

Scavenger hunts help kids work on their visual skills as they hunt for pictures or objects. They also teach kids how to follow directions and help them work on hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. Lastly, they get kids moving! When kids get their bodies moving, they are happier and healthier!
