It's a beautiful day and you want to get outside... Try planning a scavenger hunt. With a little bit of advance planning you can design an exquisite afternoon of family challenge and fun.

Start by dividing your gang into two teams. Each team receives a clue collection bag containing a Polaroid instant camera, film, hunt instructions, a challenge sheet, and various supplies.

Decide how long each team has to complete the hunt, and you're off. Each team manages its own hunt, deciding in what order to complete the challenges and how to logistically handle the game. The goal is to complete as many challenges as possible in the time allotted.

The success of the game will depend largely on the challenges you devise... so plan wisely! The difficulty of your challenges will depend on the age of your players and the environment of the hunt.

For example, challenges in town can range from taking a photograph of one of your teammates posing with a police officer, to collecting 5 custom matchbooks from local restaurants. If you're planning a hunt in a more rural setting, consider nature challenges like taking a photograph of a particular kind of tree, digging up a mushroom and bringing it back in your bag, or building a miniature teepee out of twigs in the woods and taking a picture of your whole team posing next to it.
