Freebie Friday- Photo Scavenger Hunt List

One of the top events that we have ever done was a photo scavenger hunt. This is where you divide your students into teams, and each team is given the same list and must go out into the city and find each item on the list and take a picture of each of them in the list. It is a great activity, and I figured that I would share our list for you to use and share as well. If you have any questions about the event, contact me at If you have any any other ideas for future photo scavenger hunts, please let me know so that I can keep it fresh.

  1. Our youth just did a photot scavenger hunt hunt as well, though we did clues with ours. Also, since it is the Christmas season, we included the youth in in participating in our Angel Tree. Then we finished by caroling at our pastor’s house!
