You don’t need much to plan your own indoor scavenger hunt games. Just think of some fabulous hiding spots and then leave hints so the kids can find the next clue. Your hints can be popular lines from movies or books, riddles, scrambled words, math problems, etc. Use your creativity and have fun with it!
