Activity Name: Block Scavenger Hunt
Introduction: Scavenger hunts are useful for providing a stimulating activity for participants and creating both teamwork, cooperation and healthy competition in children. In this activity, we have a variation that will appeal to participants of a variety of ages.
Supplies: Blocks of various sizes and colors (one color per participant), sheets of construction paper in corresponding colors.
Objective: healthy competition, competitive play, sportsmanship and support, spatial reasoning, multi-level task completion.
Description: Each participant is assigned a color and each colored sheet of construction paper is set out on a table. Each person then searches for hidden block pieces of their color (and may not move pieces of other colors) to find a predetermined number (ex. 10 per person). The first to find all their pieces must put them on the construction paper for counting, then completes the task by constructing something from their blocks. The winner completed the activity first.
