Sometimes you want to have a party or get together, but you have a hard time making plans for what you want to do exactly. Why not send your guests on a scavenger hunt? It's relatively simple, it's fun and everyone is almost sure to have a great time.

The Basic Scavenger Hunt

Spend the afternoon with a friend organizing clues and prizes. Then, once all of your guests arrive, have them start off on a search of the neighborhood or even the town to find all of the clues and race to the final prize. The energy of a scavenger hunt will make everyone's mood light and it's a great way to get to know people better. At the end of the hunt, everyone can get a prize or you can actually race or give points for certain items.

The Romantic Scavenger Hunt

A scavenger hunt is a great party for Valentine's Day or any other time you want to do something special for your friends in couples. It's a fun way to spend time with a special someone without feeling awkward and stressed about being 'romantic.' Invite all of your couple friends over for a scavenger hunt.

Instead of giving them clues to follow on a path, make a list of places to visit ' obvious ones mixed with creative ones works best. For example, each couple might get five points for making it to the statue in the center of town and ten points for finding a true symbol of love. You can also make a list of spots that are meaningful to the couple ' the site of your first kiss, etc'

At each location, have each couple take a picture of themselves kissing, hugging or being romantic in someway. Romantic/silly is fine, of course. To finish the race, they must get the pictures developed and bring them back to the starting point. There you can be waiting with all of the food and drinks and prizes. Provide small scrapbooks for your guests and they can put together a scrapbook of all the great places and fun they had as the 'prize' for the party and of course, everyone has to judge the pictures of other couples to find the most romantic for the big prize.

The Highly Competitive Scavenger Hunt

If you really want to watch your friends turn cut-throat, send them out into the town armed with a list of items and assigned point values. The group that brings in the most 'points' wins. But the groups have to do this in a certain amount of time and the group must stay together.

Your list of items can be random things that everyone has, such as a red colored pencil worth five points, or something much harder to get like 100 red Legos worth thirty points. You should give the highest point value to the hardest ones to find ' or the ones that take the longest. Deduct points for every minute the groups are late after the final bell and tally up the points while they share stories and laugh over refreshments. It's frantic, but it's loads of fun.

My sister did the romantic (but very silly) scavenger hunt to ask her boyfriend to the Sadie Hawkins dance one year. She sent him to random places, and he had to do funny things. One that I remember was that he had to go to Subway and order the sandwich she liked best, eat it, and get the next clue from the cashier. At the end, her, her friends and I all blew up about 300 balloons with little slips saying "next balloon" or "wrong" or something written on them, and one that had "Will you go to Sadie's with me?"

He had to pop each "no" balloon before she walked out f his closet and handed him the "yes" balloon. It was so much fun just setting it up.
