Fire House Scavenger Hunt

Things you’ll need:

Several pictures of fire.  Either hand drawn, cut from magazines, or printed off of the computer.
Bags, half the number of guests

Before the guests arrive:

 Step 1:  Cut out all the pictures.  Two per guest is generally a good number to have.

Step 2:  Hide the pictures all around the house.  Keep the ages of your guests in mind while doing the hiding.

When the guests arrive:

Step 1:  Split the guests up into teams of two. 

Step 2:  Show the children a picture of a fire, and tell them that there are several “fires” all around the house.  Explain that each team is a pair of firefighters, who must find and put out as many fires as they can in three minutes.

Step 3:  Give each team a bag to put the fires into.

Step 4:  Ring a bell, or yell ‘FIRE!’ to indicate that it’s time to start putting out fires.

Step 5:  When the three minutes are up, call all the teams back.  The team with the most fires in their bag wins.
