Make a scavenger hunt game using large pill boxes from the dollar store. Great kids game for camping or outdoor adventures. Tell your kids, go find it!
We recently had a camping family reunion and I was put in charge of a game for the kids. Well, you know me. There was no way duck, duck goose was going to cut it, so I came up with this fun Scavenger Hunt Game that the kids had a ball with and played them throughout the entire weekend.
I found these Large Pill Boxes at the dollar store and thought these would be perfect for my game.
I used Pure Acetone to remove the printed days of the week off of the Pill Boxes.
(This tip is also included in my Why Didn’t I Think of That post.)
Here are all of the pill boxes with the printing removed from them.
I measured the inside of the lid so I knew how big to make each label.
I tried to think of things they the kids would be able to find while we were out camping and put them into an Excel sheet so I could easily cut them out and put them on the inside of the lids of the Pill Boxes. A couple of the things I came up with were a flat rock, a soda can tab and a piece of trash.
I glued the printed sheets onto cardstock with a glue stick, laminated the sheets with clear laminate contact paper and then cut the squares out.
I wanted to make each case a little different so the kids would be able to play several times without having to look for the same exact thing each time. I glued the squares onto the inside of the lids using E-6000.
So this is what the inside looked like.
For the outside lettering, I used some scraps of brown vinyl, my big shot and Timeless Type Sizzlits.
I love how they turned out!
And the kids loved going on their scavenger hunt!
