So I was trying to find cheap fun stuff to do this summer to go along with our mission projects. Well back a couple of months ago I though a scavenger hunt at the local mall would be a good idea. I didn’t really put much thought into it. It just sounded like something that students would want to be a part of.
So it is tomorrow and I have spent the evening trying to find that thin line between crazy enough to be fun and so crazy they throw us all out of the mall. I am thinking about instructing my kids that if they are asked to stop to not say that they are with a church. Just go outside and wait and we will come and find you.
Anyway, this is a photo scavenger hunt. I tried to come up with as many things that can be done out in the mall itself since some stores have a problem with cameras. I have a couple of digital cameras, but I think the bulk of the picture taking will be done with cell phones. This is the one time that I am really glad all of my students seem to have them.
The part I am really excited about is the primary objective. I have made it so that you can’t win the game unless everyone in your group at least comes up with something. In the announcement I told them to bring an extra $3 so they should have the cash. I am also going to tell them that buying something from the Christian bookstore is cheating. They must use their imaginations.
Dothan Mall Scavenger Hunt
Find something that costs less than $3 that you can use to share the truth about God’s love with someone else. Everyone must purchase their own unique item (don’t copy someone else) and must bring it back at our first check in (8:00 in the food court).
Take a digital photo of someone in your group with each of the following items. Prizes will be given to the group who gets the most correct pictures. In event of a tie the adults will judge who’s gross picture is grossest and that group will be the winner. Every member of the group must be in at least one picture in order for the group to be eligible for the prize. None of the people who are listed below can be people from our group.
Someone wearing an Auburn shirt
Someone wearing an Alabama shirt
A map of the mall
Someone posing like a teapot
Someone sitting on the floor
Someone flapping their arms like a bird
A store clerk (must have on at least a nametag)
A cash register
Someone in your group driving
Someone in your group dancing
2000 points if everyone in your group completes the primary objective
100 points for each secondary objective completed
