How to Play a Road Trip Scavenger Hunt
So, how do you play a Road Trip Scavenger Hunt? Feel free to be creative, but this is the most common way to play:
- First, give each passenger a Road Trip Scavenger Hunt and a dry-erase marker (included in the set!).
- Next, depending on the ages of the participants, choose to either:
- work as a team to find the items listed on the card, or
- compete to find the items listed on the card.
- When an item is found, use the dry-erase marker to place an X over the icon.
- The game is over when either:
- a participant completes the entire board (all 25 icons), or
- the allotted time (determined by you!) ends.
- If you choose to end the game before a participant completes the entire board, then the winner is the participant who has marked the most items.
