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.
