We’ve been really lucky this year with quite a mild winter so far (knock on wood.) But if you’re dealing with colder weather or just looking for some fun stuff to do with your kids inside the house, then you have to try an Indoor Scavenger Hunt.
When our Outdoor Scavenger Hunt was a big hit with the kids I decided to try an indoor hunt on a morning when I needed to finish off about 20 minutes of work and they wanted to play!
It’s really easy to put together. All you need is a paper and something to write with.
If you have kids that can read, then you can quickly write up a list of items for them to find and bring back to you. If your kids are younger, it’ll be easier for them if you draw a few quick pictures. You’ll want to do some easy things and some hard ones just to keep it exciting as well as challenging!
Here’s the list that I came up with:
When doing the scavenger hunt indoors there are so many options to add to the scavenger hunt list, the possibilities are endless. Use your imagination and your kids will have a lot of fun!

What a fun idea! I’ll have to try it with my boys, I know they would love it!
I hope they enjoyed it Rebekah!
What a GREAT idea! I love scavenger hunts. My kids are grown now, but when the grandkids come to visit, I could certainly put this to use! Thanks for sharing!
Anytime, glad you like it Shellye!
That sounds like a fun idea, if and when I become a grandmother. Lots of cold weather around here.
It was lots of fun for the kids 🙂
This is great. I don’t know if it would keep mine busy for 20 minutes, but it’s pretty fun!
What a cute idea. I love the drawings you did for your little girl. Precious. Thanks for the ideas!
You’re welcome 🙂
We’ve done a variation on a scavenger hunt where we leave clues around the house, and each clue leads to the next clue. Lots of fun for younger kids, and you can set it up for a single group of kids or set it up as a race between groups (like the Amazing Race).
Those sound like fun variations Anna!
